What is this thing?
It's a lightly-structured party where people get together and work on a project in a new programming language, either with or just near each other.
This all started with the realization that plenty of people have a side-project in mind to work on, that it's more fun to work together, and that many of us are just waiting for a good excuse to get started.

Host a PLIBMTT-PARTY
It's easy to throw a PLIBMTTBHGATY; just find a space, open a pull request to add your event to this website, and invite some friends.
Some ingredients include:
Signs with names of programming languages
A show-and-tell at the end
Four to five hours seems to be about the right amount of time for this.
