From the BBC:
Wanted: 12 programmers to live on a remote tropical island for two months to do nothing but write code.
Applicants are being sought for the coding jamboree that will take place on an as yet un-named island.
Those applying will have to submit a proposal explaining what they will work on during the hackathon.
They will also have to complete a psychological evaluation to show they can live in harmony with other coders for the duration of the event.
Part of me thinks this would be a pretty cool way to just focus on whatever project you’re doing. Another part of me thinks island fever would set in after a few weeks. It’s one thing to not be distracted for a large chunk of the day. It’s another thing to pretty much remove yourself from it all for 2 months.
