I am pleased to announce the next Xen Hackathon. The Hackathon will be hosted by the Ganeti team at Google and takes place on May 16-17, 2013 at Google’s offices in Dublin Ireland. You can find the exact address and hotel options at the events page and can also request an invite from there. I wanted to thank Google and in particular Guido Trotter 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. Given that the Ganeti team will host the event, we expect a strong bias towards cloud integration. This year, we expect a little bit more structure at the Hackathons and will cover Xen on ARM, Xen 4.4 planning as well as any topics that you want to discuss. You can add topics that you want to discuss, code on, work on, … on the Hackathon wiki page. You can also comment on what others plan to do or vote on activities in which you want to participate.
As spaces at the Xen Hackathon are tight and we had people registering in the past and then not attending, we will be asking for a small registration fee of $15 this year.
This fee will be given to Treshhold (an Ireland charity that works to prevent homelessness and campaigns for housing as a right) and Citrix will match the amount to fund a social
event on the 16th. You will need to cover your own travel, accommodation and other costs such as evening meals, etc. We do have limited travel stipends available for individuals who cannot afford to travel: please contact community dot manager at xen dot org if you need to make use of it.
If you are interested in attending the hackathon, please request an invitation by going to the events page.
See you there!
