4 weeks to Xen Hackathon in Santa Clara, CA, USA

Just a quick reminder that it is only 4 weeks to the Oracle hosted Xen Hackathon in Santa Clara, CA, USA (March 6-8). More than half of the available spaces have gone.

What is a Xen Hackathon

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. Xen Hackathons are not invite only, but of course it only makes sense for you to attend if you are trying to solve a concrete code or design problem around Xen and in particular if others that attend are working on something similar.

Signing up!

If you are planning to attend please sign up quickly, such that I get a feeling for the number of attendees.

  • If you think you will attend please sign up on the Wiki page
  • If you think you may attend, but are not sure yet add you can sign up provisionally (please follow instructions on the Wiki page)

Please also add topics and stuff you want to cover.

Thank you to Oracle

I wanted to thank Oracle and in particular Konrad Rzeszutek Wilk and Monica Kumar for making the Hackathon happen.

See you there!
