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. People working on

documentation and other aspects of Xen, XCP, XenARM and related projects are also welcome.

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.

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. We will be looking at organizing opportunities to drink beer, etc. in the evenings. If you know the area and have suggestions, please add to the wiki (see below).
