Drumbeat Hackfests are live collaborative events where tools and technologies that support the open web are designed and created. The theme of the 2011 China Drumbeat is citizen science on the web, a growing trend which is also called “citizen cyberscience”. Some of the world’s leading developers in this field will be participating, like David Anderson , director of the famous SETI@home volunteer computing project.
The 2011 China Mozilla Drumbeat event has two parts – an evening overview lecture series on 23rd March 7pm-9pm, and a two-day hackfest, 24th and 25th March. You may join just the first part, or both parts. If you join the hackfest, you should try to participate as long as possible, to get the full benefit of the event. Participation, all meals and beverages free of charge, including a hackfest dinner on 24th March. The hackfest will follow a goal-driven agenda, which is outlined below.
