Xen Hackathon 2013, May 16-17, Dublin
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.
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
Topics to Discuss, Code, Work on, ...
Feel free to add whatever you want to discuss, code on, work on, ... on the
Hackathon wiki page. You can
also comment on what others plan or vote that you want to participate in a discussion,
coding session etc.
Registration and Cost
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 (a 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.
