Hackathons

Debathena is an ideal project to work on during a hackathon. While help with any of our tickets is always appreciated, the following tickets have been identified as ideal for hackathon work. If you plan to work on a ticket during a hackathon, be sure to "Accept" the ticket to change the owner to you. If it already has an owner, consider dropping that person an e-mail saying that you intend to start working on the ticket. That way they can send you any tips or existing code they may have.
