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 discuss.

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.

Request an Invitation

You will be notified by email within 10 business days as to whether your request has been accepted. Upon receipt of that email, you will be given 72 hours to either confirm or reject your invitation. If you do not respond within 72 hours, your invitation will be cancelled. Once you confirm your invitation, you are considered a registered participant.
