About
Adobe is organizing an European WebKit Hackathon in Bucharest during autumn 2012. We welcome WebKit contributors to join us in September for a 3-day WebKit hacking event in Bucharest.

Our intention is to gather WebKit contributors from Europe, know each other better, share WebKit expertise and help WebKit move forward by fixing bugs, writing tests and develop HTML5 prototypes based on WebKit.
Adobe will participate with its WebKit team, which includes, among others, Dirk Schulze(krit, WebKit reviewer), Alexandru Chiculita (achicu, WebKit committer) and Mihnea Ovidenie (mihnea, WebKit committer).
