Continuing our success from last year's VIP HackWeek, we're doing a second VIP HackWeek the first week in March. The event is invite-only and it spans Monday, March 2 through Thursday, March 5. There will be more than 50 engineers from around the globe joining us for an exciting week in San Francisco, California.
This year we welcome engineers from ishi systems, DataStax, Verizon Communications, General Electric, eBay, PayPal, MapR, Microsoft Corporation, Banno, Groupon, Two Sigma, Metamarkets, MemSQL, rbonuts, Confluent, and Typesafe, among others. We will spend four days together exploring Mesos and the Mesosphere DCOS while hacking on open source datacenter services (AKA, Mesos frameworks), including Cassandra, Myriad, Kafka, HDFS, Storm, and Spark. Mesosphere engineers will pair with our guest engineers and collectively develop these handpicked projects, socializing and enjoying authentic San Francisco restaurants and fun evening events. Mesosphere engineers will also give several talks and we will have Q & A sessions with Apache Mesos Committers as well as Mesosphere frameworks experts.
The agenda for the HackWeek is full of talks, food, socializing, and of course hacking, hacking, hacking:
Day 1: Benjamin Hindman, the co-creator of Apache Mesos and Co-Founder/ Chief Architect at Mesosphere will present on the Datacenter Operating System (DCOS) and Mesos. Connor Doyle, Adam Bordelon, and Alex Rukletsov, Senior Engineers at Mesosphere will present on creating a Production Level Mesos Datacenter Service. We'll enjoy dinner at Mesosphere's HQ.
Day 2: We'll begin the day with a presentation on a monitoring system on Mesos, Satellite: How Two Sigma uses Mesosphere and the system they built for Monitoring, Alerts, and Automated Maintenance with Sunil Abraham. We'll enjoy continental breakfast in the morning, delicious lunch, and our dinner will be at Mission Street Bowling for fun and food. Of course, there will be lots of hacking, hacking, hacking.
Day 3: All hacking, all day, getting ready for the last day of demos. We'll have continental breakfast, lunch, and dinner at El Techo de Lolinda for sangria and socializing.
Day 4: Wrap up HackWeek followed by demos of what everyone created. There will be continental breakfast as well as a working lunch during the demos.
The HackWeek is designed to advance the Mesos open source ecosystem by collaborating around some of the key applications and services in the market and allowing these applications to be run in a distributed fault tolerant manner with efficient resource management on Mesos and the Mesosphere DCOS.
