Hackathon preps

About 3 months ago we had first Hackathon at Ganymede. Unfortunately We (OPS) couldn’t take part in it as We had Red-Hat exams during Hackathon time. So We were waiting 3 months till next Hackathon, thinking, preparing, brainfucking. And for what? Just to know, that next Hackathon will take place again while another Red-Hat exams. OMG, WTF???

Fortunately this time We made it to postpone.. exams :D Warsaw can wait ;) So.. now when We’re all set up and ready We had to finally make up our minds. Ganymede Hackathons are all about games – as our company creates games. But what game could Operations team create? SUD / MUD like? ;) So – We have some other ideas…

We saw those ideas coming for a while.. The first one is strictly operational and the second is really a game. We’ll have only 24 hours to finish (starting from Thursday, finishing next day), so We really have to move fast. Nothing more I can tell here – but… Nagiios, Ganglia, Raspberry-PI and Arduino – those are our directions right now ;)

So – preps underway; on the photo You can see the scene from battlefield in the early stage before even hackathon starts – 3 days before.
