OpenStack's first Global Hack-In is right at the start of the release candidate cycle (http://wiki.openstack.org/EssexReleaseSchedule), the start of March, 2012. The event is focused on testing and getting familiar with the release and exploring areas outside of your expertise.
Collaborators will be working on resolving high priority bugs, and exploring, reviewing and testing OpenStack (http://wiki.openstack.org/OpenStack) Essex.
Activities might include:
Bug Triage Patch Review Peer Code Review Ad-hoc Testing of use cases Test Automation There will be a dedicated #openstack-event IRC channel on Freenode, so if you can't attend in meat-space, see you online!
If you can make it, do note that this is a private residence and home office. But! There's plenty of parking at the corner of 4th and Manor, less than a block North of the event location. There's also a MARTA parking lot right across the street.
If you have a fold-up chair, beanbag, or favorite cushion, be sure to bring it! There's plenty of space to sit, just not much to sit on!
DreamHost will be sponsoring with food (pizza lunch), sodas, coffee, and maybe some sweet potato pie from the local cafe (which totally specializes in taste bud win). We'll be here all day (finishing up at 5:30pm), so come prepared to hack and have some fun!
