As many of you already know, this week during the Accumulo Summit<http://accumulosummit.com/>, Booz Allen Hamilton is sponsoring a Hackathon<http://accumulosummit.com/program/hackathon/> event following the conference, from 5PM til 11PM. As part of the agenda, we are working to put together a list of existing JIRA tickets that folks can work on during the Hackathon, so we want to solicit input from the Accumulo contributors. So, if you have suggestions for tasks that people can work on, please respond directly to me and we will add them to our list.
Thanks in advance, see you all on Thursday! Paul

I've seen a few examples of starting up a Hadoop cluster that would probably serve as a good building block.
Ideally, I suppose it would be good to get a common-base (without any craziness going on) and start building up other types of containers that do all sorts of things (configured to run continuous-ingest, random-walk, or other system tests, auto-deploy latest version from Apache, etc).
This would be fun to talk about. Given Soup's talk during the Summit, I'm sure there will be others who want to get in on the discussion too (maybe even some with PoCs).
I just wanted to send out a note of thanks to all of you that suggested tickets and participated in the Accumulo Hackathon yesterday night. The event was a big success and I appreciate everyone's support and participation after a day of conference sessions. I'll be assembling some stats regarding attendance and issues worked and send them out over the next few days. If there are any anecdotes about the issues or features that were discussed that isn't captured in the JIRA, please share. I'll summarize and re-send to the list as necessary.
Have a great weekend,

The Accumulo Hackathon ran from 6:30pm to 11:00pm on June 12th, 2014. It had 42 total attendees from places like Booz Allen Hamilton, Clearedge, Cloudera, DoD, Hortonworks, JHU APL, Koverse, and sqrrl among other organizations. The attendees included many of the core Accumulo project founders and a number of the primary committers.
Leading into the Hackathon, the Accumulo community had identified 95 tickets as being suitable for new folks to work.
As the end of the event 4.5 hour event, 10 tickets were marked as complete with code committed back to Accumulo and 7 tickets were marked in-progress.
In the course of the event 10 separate contributors worked on tickets, 5 of these contributors were new or infrequent contributors to Accumulo.
Less tangibly, some solid mentoring and design work occurred throughout the event. I observed some great collaboration between senior developers and new contributors. Having many of us together in one room enabled some detailed engineering and design to occur on components like the encryption implementation, which a number of folks were working on.
Overall – it was a great session, people seemed to be having fun, learning a lot, and working hard, so definitely a positive outcome.
Thanks again to all who participated.
