I'd like to invite everyone for a hack-a-thon to be held at A9.com (265 Lytton in Palo Alto). The doors are open 10am till late. The food is pizza/sandwiches (specific vendors TBD - your vote counts). I'll create a video hangout for the people who want to participate remotely.
This hack-a-thon will also feature guests from Amazon.com in Seattle. They are interested in learning about and contributing to Bigtop, and are eager to drink from a font of expertise that is Bigtop community.
Date: Fri Feb 7, 2014 Time: 10am - late Address: 265 Lytton Ave., Palo Alto CA

What I need to do now is start making bigtop component recipes. In the first version I had a bigtop::install recipe but that was a naive approach I want to create a recipe per component like bigtop::hdfs_namenode bigtop::hdfs_datanode bigtop::hive etc.
Also want to create a lwrp (lightweight resource) for the cookbook so there will be hdfs commands exposed as chef resources, this will make the recipes cleaner.
I believe the protocol at hackathons is to do pretty much whatever the hell you want :) Thanks for organizing this, Andre! I'm looking forward to this and will try to be there as much as I can that day.
For the few who may care, this may be my last Bigtop hackathon for a while. I will be moving away from the Bay Area in March, although I will be continuing in my current day job and I don't anticipate any other change in my involvement with Bigtop.

Thanks Andre for setting this up. I'll be out of town so I wouldn't be able to attend.
Please don't consider me picking on you, in fact, on the contrary, I am very delighted to see you organize this! Historically, however, we have taken a community vote and picked a day that worked for most of us. It would be good if we could do something similar in the future as well.
Regardless, it seems like this day is working out for a lot of the community members so I am not concerned about the attendance by any means.
Thanks again! Mark

Mark, if under 'historically' you refer to the last four hachathon that was happening because they were held on a weekend and people are usually making some plans in advance for such days. If you look at how all of the meetups are set, it is normally done when the organizer can put the event together nor the other way around.
We just had a productive Bigtop meetup/hack-a-thon. In the spirit of striking the iron while it is hot, I propose to make this event regular, as was suggested by several people (Cos, Peter to my memory).
I volunteer to hold a bi-monthly event, or I'd be happy if others would like to host it too. If you like this idea, please vote regarding:
- Do we want it? - What day of the week and time do you prefer? - Is full day OK, or 1/2 day will do? - Locaiton? - I have access to the space we used in Palo Alto - What you liked/didn't regarding the past events and what would you like to see next

Thanks for volunteering and providing a place and support for the event, dude!
Having an aim for a regular event is great! Good folks from Altiscale were expressing the interest of hosting the event as well. And I am more than happy to continue doing this @WANdisco as well. So, it seems that we have quite a bit of options and can take turns to balance the load if needed.
Just to fill-in on some of the details in the past: - over the last year we had 4 hackathons (please correct me, if I've miscounted). - usually they were discussed on the dev@ before hand to make sure that date is ok for the community and there's enough of interesting stuff to work on to warrant the event.
Thanks for stepping forward with it! Cos

Let's pick a tentative schedule so that we can plan in advance. Once the date draws closer, we can adjust if desired.
- Bi-monthly meetup/hack-a-thon - To be held on 1st Fri of every other month (Feb, Apr, Jun...) - 10am - 5pm - At participating locations
Please vote/provide feedback for the above. To make this time bound, let's vote until the end of the week.
Once we settle the schedule, we can talk about the content and the location for the next event. We can have an agenda to discuss things of shared interest (e.g. the contents of a new release), some people might volunteer to do presentations (sort of what Roman did last time), and so forth.

That's a good point. I wonder if we should alternate between normal business hours and something in the evenings or weekends? I personally prefer the former, but that limits the hackathons to the subset of the community that it works for. On Sat, Feb 15, 2014 at 1:22 PM, Bruno Mahé <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote:
