Apache Drill development workshop, by Ted Dunning
Tuesday, March 19, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 4:30 PM (CET)
About the workshop: learn coding in Apache Drill
This workshop will focus on two things. The first is an introduction to how you can contribute to Apache open source projects. The second is an introduction to Apache Drill and how to develop code specifically for Drill.
During the workshop, we will go through an introduction to Apache Drill describing the goals of the project and outlining the architecture as it stands. We will then describe a number of outstanding small projects and conduct a micro unconference to suggest additional projects and to pick which projects to work on in the last 3/4 of the workshop. During the final part of the workshop, we will code madly in small groups with the goal of getting some (nearly) committable patches ready by the end of the day.

Want to join us?
Great! We'd love to see you there. However: we have a limited amount of seats available, so our appeal to you is to...
- ... please don't register unless you're confident you will come.
- ... please cancel your ticket if your plans change and you can't make it after all.
- ... please come prepared, see instructions below.
Please take this with you:
- a laptop that contains a working development environment with at least the following pre-installed:
- a java IDE such as IntelliJ IDEA, Eclipse or NetBeans
- java 1.7
- a usable unix-like environment. This is easiest if your laptop runs OSX (apple) or Linux, but you can fake it with windows using cygwin.
- at least a small awareness of Drill. You can get this by reviewing the project web-site  and wiki  and by subscribing to the mailing list  for a week or so before the workshop.
- a lot of enthusiasm for open source!
