A longer-form announcement is following soon-ish, but here are the most important facts for now:
As usual, Hacker Beach is happening next January. All of January, for however long you want to join. The general area will be along the coast of Sénégal, south of Dakar (Petite Côte). The first hackers have booked their flights, arriving in Dakar from January 3rd onward.
The idea is to find our nice paradise location on the way South, and maybe also visit Banjul in the Gambia towards the end of January. Please join us in #hackerbeach on Freenode if you’re interested, and add your name to the wiki page when you’ve booked a flight.
