OSMC Hackathon – Share your impressions!

von | Nov 19, 2019 | Events, OSMC

After two informative and exciting days at OSMC, the cherry on the sundae for me was joining our fifth OSMC hackathon for the first time. Hearing and learning about the discoveries, lessons learned and experiences made by other people in different environments, maybe using different tools, and being shown cool tricks and setups, I personally always get a little twitchy in my fingers wanting to jump at my keyboard and download, clone, install, code and play around with all the amazing new stuff I’ve learned attending OSMC 2019.
And the hackathon is the perfect setting to do this – people having seen the same talks, being excited about the same new features that have been at the forefront of discussion during the last few days.

On Wednesday the attendees made a short trip to a restaurant to have dinner, where people got to know each other casually and dream up the first plans and ideas for the main event tomorrow. After a well deserved night of sleep, the morning started with high spirits and a bit of coffee.

Round tables were placed in Saal Elizabeth, the biggest of the three OSMC conference rooms, everybody got together, and after Bernd welcomed us (and told us when lunch would be served!) everybody got a chance to introduce themselves, what one was looking for on this day, where areas of expertise lie, and if there are any specific problems to be solved.

 

Collaborative hacking equals collaborative fun

The topics were as diverse as the plethora of tools discussed at OSMC – people were working with GitHub Actions, Golang, Kubernetes, translating bash scripts in python, setting up clusters with Grafana, LOKI, Prometheus, automating the pain away with Ansible, having private lessons in Terraform, making logging more effective with Elasticsearch and Logstash, Icinga modules like Icingabeat, looking at the awesome stuff you can do with Icinga Director, and I’ve even seen people working on issues and pull requests – as we know, the community is always active. #monitoringlove <3 

Personally, I was working with Tobias on a SELinux check plugin for Icinga, but mostly, I was looking around, taking in the experience and trying to learn a bit from all the interesting discussions that developed. I can really recommend it! It can make your OSMC experience more complete and rounded, working, coding and developing alongside the experts. Maybe this year you were only able to check out our cool videos from OSMC, and you really wanted to ask one of our amazing speakers a certain question? Well, follow our Twitter at @NetwaysEvents, keep an eye out for the next registration, sign up for two days of open source monitoring goodness plus the hackathon and meet up with your engineering heroes – I’ll be there and I’m looking forward to you!
