Discussion on the state of cloud computing and open source software that helps build, manage, and deliver everything-as-a-service.
Xen Hackathon March 6-8
For those of you that are Xen Cloud Platform (XCP) users and are in Silicon Valley the CloudStack community team and some of our developers will be attending the Xen Hackathon at Oracle in Silicon Valley on March 6th-8th. If you want to help make Xen Cloud Platform a better hypervisor for your cloud come on in the XCP project lead Mike McClurg will be there as well for you to discuss where XCP is going.
What is a Xen Hackathon?
The aim of Xen Hackathons is to give developers in the Xen community the opportunity to meet face to face to discuss development, coordinate, write code and collaborate with other Xen developers. It is a 3 day self-organizing event, where Xen developers work on concrete problems around the Xen codebase in small self-organizing groups.
Xen developers with the following expertise will be present: Xen Hypervisor developers, kernel developers (working on Xen components in the Linux kernel), XCP developers working on project Kronos and the Xen Cloud Platform. Xen on ARM as well is MIPS will also feature in the March 2012 Hackathon.
Xen Hackathons are also great opportunities for companies and open source projects, built on Xen, XCP or commercially based Xen products to test (and fix any issues in their products) against the latest open source baselines. You will have access and be able to work on concrete code problems with Xen developers at the Hackathon.
