So, a while ago I decided that I wanted to invite the core developers of the iPXE project to my home for an extended weekend of hacking on the project. The agenda was to try and merge as many outstanding patches and pull requests that we knew about. The work the various students did as part of GSoC 2012 was on the priority list. The three people that were able to come were Michael Brown, Thomas Miletich and Marin Hannache.
Recently, I was participating in the Moving to Moose hackathon at Preikestolen near Stavanger, Norway together with a lot of other Perl hackers.
