Ideas for the Hack Day at CloudStack Collaboration Conference in Santa Clara, CA

Have an idea for a hack day session at the CloudStack Collaboration Conference? We'll take suggestions for sessions up to the date of the conference and then ask the attendees to pick and participate at the event.


Session Title

Session Leader


CloudStack Documentation

Joe Brockmeier

Planning docs and improvements for 4.2.0 and beyond. How can we make docs more accurate, better for users, and easier to produce?

Secondary storage maintenance mode

Daan Hoogland

design (and implementation?) of a maintenance scheme and functionalities needed to make secondary storage maintenance more user-friendly/robust

Technical documentation for developers

Mike Tutkowski

It would greatly aid (especially new) CloudStack developers if we had some class and object-interaction diagrams to show what the system looks like at a high level. Let's spend some time creating this.

Lets gain mindshare (and maybe some more developers)

Giles Sirett

CloudStack is the best available IaaS orchestration platform. Period. But, we struggle to get mindshare and we are not always perceived as the best choice. We need to change that. We need to ensure that organisations choosing a cloud OS have ACS at the top of their list. What can we do, as a community, to make sure that the world knows that ACS should be the first technology they look at ?

Guava and CloudStack

John Burwell

Leveraging Guava's facilities to create more maintainable, expressive code

Apache Libcloud driver

Sebastien Goasguen

Discuss state of cloudstack driver in libcloud, explain undergoing dev and submit few patches

Apache Whirr

Sebastien Goasguen

Discuss state of CloudStack driver in Whirr, fix basic zone support with security group

Apache DeltaCloud

Sebastien Goasguen

Plan CloudStack driver in Delatcloud

Storage Architecture

John Burwell

Discuss the next steps in evolving the storage layer including (but not limited to) strategies for breaking Storage->Hypervisor layer dependencies and generalizing I/O operations.

Wiki Cleanup

Joe Brockmeier

The Wiki, in its current state, needs a lot of love. Let's sit down and talk about how to improve its organization, and actually work on cleaning up the content.
