We’re excited to return to one of our favorite open source community conferences, All Things Open, taking place October 13-15 in Raleigh, NC. AWS is a Presenting Sponsor, and we have some great events lined up – please join us and share in the fun!
The conference kicks off on Sunday, October 13th, at 1pm, with a special event on Inclusion in Open Source & Technology which we are particularly delighted to sponsor.
Open Distro Hack Day
Open Distro is a downstream distribution of open source Elasticsearch with additional features like built-in security, alerting, performance diagnostics, machine learning, and more. The Open Distro for Elasticsearch team is hosting an all-day hackathon on October 14. The Open Distro Hack Day will be held in State Ballroom A at the Marriott, across the street from the Convention Center within easy walking distance from registration.
We’ll work with fellow open source developers, enthusiasts, students, and professionals on real-world problems using the Open Distro for Elasticsearch codebase. At this event, you can build on existing Open Distro for Elasticsearch features. Your projects could include security integration for third-party authentication systems or alerting web hooks for Gitter. You could work on front-end components such as a React client for Performance Analyzer or new dashboard visualizations in Kibana. You could also work on UX design or contribute to the technical documentation.
We will have Open Distro experts and mentors available to help you every step of the way, along with lunch and snacks. We will be selecting top projects for prizes. We’ll also have swag for the winners. Space is limited, so sign up now. We look forward to seeing you there!
