The Thamizha (www.thamizha.com) community is a developer community dedicated in creating Open Source software for Tamil users.
As a part of the community efforts, a Hackathon is going to be conducted in Brisbane, Australia on October 9th.
As a parallel effort, we will have a hackathon in Chennai jointly organised by ILUGC and Thamizha Community.
This is a opportunity for programming enthusiasts to get together and contribute code for the benefit of community.
I on behalf of the community kindly invite every one interested for the hackathon. We will be primarily dealing with creating better tools for Tamil Language input, Spell checking, Dictionary …etc in the form of desktop applications, Browser addons or Mobile Apps.
The Venue has been generously offered by Mr. Asokan, an ILUGC Member.
The Venue Details and How to reach?:
Date: 9th October 2011 Time: 9AM to 5PM
