The HPCC Systems platform team is delighted that we have been accepted as a mentoring organisation for GSoC 2015!

Welcome to any students who are interested in working on a project on our ideas list located here: https://wiki.hpccsystems.com/x/cQB.

While the student application period does not open until 16th March 2015, this is a good time to familiarize yourself with the projects on offer. Check out the details provided including the deliverables. Where relevant, links to other resources you might find useful are also provided. Each project has already been assigned a mentor who is an expert in that area of our system. Email details are provided so you can contact them for more information.

We have created a wiki which highlights the main things you need to know about us and GSoC here: https://wiki.hpccsystems.com/x/MAB. But if you have made it here, you will already know that there is wealth of information about HPCC Systems here on our website.

Go ahead, download the system and play around with it. There are downloads here: http://hpccsystems.com/download/free-community-edition/server-platform. But we think you're going want to delve down into the code, in which case you will want to download and build the system yourself using the instructions on our development wiki here: https://github.com/hpcc-systems/HPCC-Platform/wiki/Building-HPCC.

Once you have your system up and running, there are plenty of examples you can use to see what the system can do. Try out the HPCC Data Tutorial, https://hpccsystems.com/download/documentation/tutorials/hpcc-data-tutorial-introduction-thor-and-roxie, or the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon example https://hpccsystems.com/download/documentation/tutorials/six-degrees-kevin-bacon-ecl-example. You will need to download the ECL IDE to do this.

Then you may want to learn a bit of ECL. Have a go at the Introduction to ECL online training course. You will need to sign up first which you can do here: https://hpccsystems.com/getting-started/training-classes. If you decide you want to graduate onto any of the more advanced courses, we will supply you with a promotional code so that you can take it for free. To get a promotional code, email trish.mccall@lexisnexis.com. Be prepared to provide proof of your student status.

Feel free to post comments or questions relating to GSoC here. We will be opening a GSoC specific IRC channel shortly, details of which will be posted here.

Here are the contact details for the GSoC administrative organisers for HPCC Systems in case you have any general questions:

Trish McCall - trish.mccall@lexisnexis.com
Lorraine Chapman - Lorraine.Chapman@lexisnexis.com

More to come...
