Re: #SharedCrypto team-specific hack-a-thon? #SharedCrypto
I can't promise anything since I haven't confirmed yet, but I might be able to offer space at our Sunnyvale campus either before or after Real World Crypto (but probably before, since it's a Wed-Fri event) this coming January. If it's a small group, then I can almost certainly do it.
I doubt RWC is a good venue for a hackathon though--people are usually pretty drained from going to the talks all day. I've never seen anyone try to do a hackathon in conjunction with an IACR conference before, and I'd be worried about turnout (RWC may be an exception to this rule, but I'd be surprised). Most people are there to go to talks and socialize, not hack. It would be difficult to get new people.
Are lots of people on this list planning on coming to RWC? If so, at minimum I can try to plan for a crypto-lib workday on the Tuesday before RWC.

I think it’s a good idea. The Crypto Lib is a very good fit for a hackathon in my opinion - lots of small jobs, lots of specialist edges that will benefit from a quick injection of niche skills, no distracting demo UI pressure...
