The time for our first hour of Interhacktivity is almost upon us.

The tutorials will be held via a Google Hangout on Air. The exact link to the Hangouts will be posted at the top of this article when they go live, on Monday and Thursday (at 6pm).

Throughout the tutorials, non-presenting Interhacktives will be monitoring Twitter. We’re hoping to keep matters as informal as possible, so, if you have any questions during the event, please tweet using the hashtag #hackshangout. And, of course, if you have any questions, suggestions or comments before or after the event, please do the same, or tweet us directly.
