Oracle hosted Xen Hackathon

I am pleased to announce the next Xen Hackathon. The Hackathon will be hosted by Oracle and takes place March 6-8, 2012 at the Oracle Campus in Santa Clara, CA, USA. If you want to attend, save the date and add yourself to the wiki. I wanted to thank Oracle and in particular Konrad Rzeszutek Wilk for making the Hackathon happen.

The aim of the Hackathon is to give developers the opportunity to meet face to face to discuss development, coordinate, write code and collaborate with other developers as well as allowing everyone to put names with faces. People working on documentation and other aspects of Xen, XCP, XenARM and related projects are also welcome.

There is no registration fee. However as an attendee you will need to cover your own travel, accommodation and other costs such as evening meals etc. More details will follow and will be communicated in due course on the blog, mailing lists and via the wiki page.

See you there!
