In addition to the Accumulo birds of a feather session at the Hadoop Summit
(register here if you haven't already:
http://www.meetup.com/Accumulo-Users-DC/events/118370172/), we have the
option of reserving some time in the design lounge. See forwarded email
If anyone wants to get together for some whiteboarding, or if you have
suggestions for potential features that would benefit from such a session,
let me know!

We thought we'd try something new at Hadoop Summit this year to build upon
two pieces of feedback I've heard a lot this year:
Apache project developers would like to take advantage of the Hadoop summit
to meet with their peers to on work on specific technical details of their
That they want to do this during the summit, not before it starts or at
night. I've been told BoFs and other such traditional formats have not
historically worked for them, because they end up being about educating
users about their projects, not actually working with their peers on how to
make their projects better.
So we are creating a space in the summit - marked in the event guide as
DesignLounge - concurrent with the presentation tracks where Apache Project
contributors can meet with their peers to plan the future of their project
or work through various technical issues near and dear to their hearts.
We're going to provide white boards and message boards and let folks take
it from there in an unconference style. We think there will be room for
about 4 groups to meet at once. Interested? Let me know what you think.
Send me any ideas for how we can make this work best for you.
The room will be 231A and B at the Hadoop Summit and will run from 10:30am
to 5:00pm on Day 1 (26th June), and we can also run from 10:30am to 5:00pm
on Day 2 (27th June) if we have a lot of topics that folk want to cover.
Some of the early topics some folks told me they hope can be covered:
Hadoop Core security proposals. There are a couple of detailed proposals
circulating. Let's get together and hash out the differences.
Accumulo 1.6 features
The Hive vectorization project. Discussion of the design and how to phase
it in incrementally with minimum complexity.
Finishing Yarn - what things need to get done NOW to make Yarn more
If you are a project lead for one of the Apache projects, look at the
schedule below and suggest a few slots when you think it would be best for
your project to meet. I'll try to work out a schedule where no more than 2
projects are using the lounge at once.
Day 1, 26th June: 10:30am - 12:30pm, 1:45pm - 3:30pm, 3:45pm - 5:00pm
Day 2, 27th June: 10:30am - 12:30pm, 1:45pm - 3:30pm, 3:45pm - 5:00pm
It will be up to you, the hadoop contributors, from there.
Look forward to seeing you all at the summit,
