MySQL Proxy Hackathon 2009

During my talk at the MySQL Users Conference, Heidi came up with the idea of holding a hackathon for Proxy.

It seemed well received, and we mulled it over a bit.

At this point we are proposing the following:

  • Meet for two days on October 15th and 16th, i.e. Thursday and Friday
  • Venue will be the Sun Office, Hamburg, Germany
  • Topics include (but bring your own!):
    • Introduction to the code base
    • Work on bug fixes
    • Discuss ideas for going forward
    • Prototyping ideas
    • Integrate your work into the mainline (as it makes sense/is possible)

While the officially planned time is "only" two days, there's the possibility to extend the meeting into the weekend, if necessary.
Both Jan and I live close to the office, in fact for me it's about 15 minutes away :)

Also, by moving it close to the weekend, it makes for a great opportunity to extend the stay and do some sightseeing, and of course have beers with the team ;)
Flights are typically also cheaper if the stay includes a weekend.

If you are interested in attending, you can either comment on this post, send me an email or join our Launchpad discussion team and sign up for the mailing list (free Launchpad account required).

For planning purposes we would need some contact information from those who would like to attend - which we will keep private of course and not use for anything else. Goes without saying, but still :)

Looking forward to seeing you in October!
