I don't see how what you do is different from being a tourist. You're not
reimbursed, you're not studying, this is all about a tourist attending an
event for fun. Hackfests are fests, right?

Unlike India, you won't even get people snooping around, trying to revoke
your tourist status by virtue of attending a "professional conference".
