What's it all about?:

MageHack is a free 24-hour development meetup in the heart of London - and is also the official kick-off of MagentoLive UK!  The purpose of the hackathon is to provide a fun, community environment to learn and practice Magento development by pitching ideas - forming teams - building a prototype of a hack - and sharing the results.

Organized by the London Magento Users Group.

-- Steve Jobs
