Hacio’r Iaith (Hacking the Language) is a language technology event that has been running yearly since 2010. This year, the event will be taking place here at Bangor University, in the Management Centre, immediately after the “Through Technological Means” conference.
It’s an open ‘unconference’ that anyone can attend to talk about any subject that they’d like. Participants are welcome to suggest subjects for discussion, and resources including rooms with projectors and computers will be available for giving talks and sharing ideas.
In the past participants have discussed a variety of subjects, encompassing the Welsh language, the web and technology, and workshops have also been given discussing how to create Wikipedia pages, blogs and apps.
Although the language of the event will be Welsh, this year there will be opportunities for our international guests to give talks and demonstrations through the medium of English as part of Hacio’r Iaith Rhyngwladol (International Hacking the Language). We will also try to have bilingual interpreters available, who will be able to translate for non-Welsh speakers an informal capacity.
