Gr√ľ√ü Gott, M√ľnchen!

Last weekend, we had yet another successful hackathon with plenty of hard work. But this one was special since it was organized in M√ľnchen. It was the 3rd international onsite hackathon, after the ones in Lyon and Aachen. From the Unikraft community, RńÉzvan and Radu were there, whereas other community members provided support online, on Discord (special thanks to »ėtefan).

Over 30 participants came to Technische Universit√§t M√ľnchen for the 2-day event about unikernels. This is the highest attendance for an onsite Unikraft Hackathon event!

Make Open Source Contributions Great Again!

On the first day, there were sessions about configuring, building, running, and debugging applications with Unikraft. The participants were given initial information about the topics and then they dove deep into understanding the principles behind the unikernels. They were very active in reporting new issues.

The second day started with RńÉzvan’s talk and demo on Binary Compatibility. Then, the folks created teams of 3-4 people, got an entry for each team in the scoreboard then started solving hackathon challenges. Results speak for themselves:

All contributions were awarded points that made it to the scoreboard.

Special Thanks

We are very grateful to Pramod, Charalampos, Jorg, Sophia and Nitinder for a warm welcome and very good organization, without which this hackathon would have been impossible.

Many more to come!
