Xen Hack-a-tron, 23-25 March 2011

I just wanted to give a quick update on how preparations for the Xen Hackathon in Cambridge are progressing. We are almost full, so if you did want to attend but have not told us yet, please get in touch with Ian Campbell as quickly as possible.

The format will be:

  • Three days of discussing, designing, coding and experimenting on Xen and XCP
  • In small groups organised around projects
  • With plenty of opportunity to network and get to know each other

You can find more information about attendees and project ideas on the wiki. I expect that the list of project ideas will grow fast in the next few days.

We renamed the Hackathon to Hack-a-tron after we agreed on a logo. I also created a Xen Hack-a-tron desktop wallpaper for you to download and use. Enjoy!
