Description

Hacking the Edge

an OpenStack hackathon hosted by Open Telekom Cloud

Motivation pitch/challenge

From an provider's perspective, classic OpenStack clouds are usually a centralized pieces of hardware in a few data centers. The new Edge Computing paradigm claims that core infrastructe may also be distributed, though. With the OpenStack Hackathon before the Berlin Summit, we plan to explore applying this idea to a sample cloud with Raspberry Pis, edge routers, SoC bord designs, and other gadgets you may bring from your toy box. The challenge is to design and run a demo cloud where everybody can be an operator and we are able to collaboratively work on data provided by sensors.

Requirements/what to bring

This hackathon is open to everbody interested in hacking the challenge. All skills are welcome alike. As we plan to create an OpenStack cloud some knowledge in its projects and modules might come in handy. Even if you are not a Nova developer or engineer, skilled to adapt software to obscure hardware platforms, but have some knowledge in Python, Ansible or network configuration, we'll find a team and a task for you. Do you have plenty of ideas but your coding skills are somewhat rusty? Join us as a product owner or requirement engineer! Do you love to write about stuff? We want you as a chronicler! Are you good with colors, images, or design? Help us to make the hackathon's result look good!

If you have hackable devices, bring them to the event. We'll also provide a selection of gadgets. Some Linux support for that device might be helpful. Otherwise it should be able to run Python. A network adapter that connects the device to a wifi or other wireless network is helpful. If you have other sensors, bring them along. A notebook computer is recommended to bring with the tools you are familiar with. We'll have an OpenStack tenant available to host some services.

Prizes/jury and mentors

Thanks to our sponsors, we hope to offer a set of prizes for the best technical solution, the most complete project, the most inclusive approach, the most cunning design, and some other categories we announce during the Hackathon. Adding to that, we provide a number of mentors that help hooking you up to with the systems and technology. Please contact us if you'd like to help as a mentor at nils-dot-magnus-at-t-dash-systems-dot-com.

Diversity/Code of Conduct

The OpenStack community Code of Conduct is the base of the collaborative effort of this Hackthon. Adding to that, we support a diversity approach that combines the skills and superpowers from different backgrounds, roles, companies, teams, or origins. Apart from that there are no rules.

Venue/place and time

The hackathon is hosted by Open Telekom Cloud at their accelerator co-working space "Hub:raum" in the heart of Berlin (not directly at the Summit venue!):
To get there, take the U2 subway line to "Bühlowstraße". From there it's just a five-minute-walk to Hub:raum. Drinks and food are provided gratuitously by Open Telekom Cloud during the event. Attending is free for all participants who register until October 26, 2018.
