These lucky hackers are encouraged, though not required, to enter
this year’s Best Hack Contest using their Palm Computing organizer
as a platform for clever hacks. Palm Computing (http://www.palm.com/)
has also graciously provided numerous Palm Computing devices for use
by the conference so Palm Hacking should be a popular event.
“Palm has extended its support of the Macintosh platform with the
release of the Palm MacPac version 2,” says Douglas Wirnowski,
product marketing manager at Palm Computing, “and our participation

Attendees who have already registered are automatically entered to
win. For those that have not yet registered, entering is easy. Simply
go to the conference web site (http://www.machack.com) and register
either via the secure online form or via the snail mail form.
This represents an unprecedented value for conference attendees. All
attendees who register by April 15, 1999, will get a significant
discount off of the regular registration rate, but now, they can net
even more value.
Student registration is limited to 50 and is available for the deeply
discounted price of $50. This price includes a meal package provided
by MindVision Software (http://www.mindvision.com/) and a 1 in 50
chance of winning a Palm III connected organizer.
MacHack, in its fourteenth year, remains centered around cutting edge
software development. Each year the conference brings together
well-known names in the software business, as well as many students
and other upstarts whose names we’ll know soon enough, and fosters
interaction between all of the attendees. MacHack’s uniqueness
derives from the informal feel and the LIVE coding that occurs
around-the-clock during the conference.
MacHack 1999 will take place June 23-26 in Dearborn, Michigan.
