Having blogged about being a fly on the wall at a meeting of the European contingent of the HPCC Systems development team, it’s time to look through a window into the world of the  developer offsite meeting, which is attended by the wider HPCC Systems core development team. At these meetings, the Europeans are joined by a number of US based colleagues for these biannual, week long, residential gatherings.

Straight after the HPCC Systems Community Day Summit last October, I headed over to Kennesaw State University, College of Computing and Software Engineering with a group of HPCC Systems colleagues, for the launch of their first hackathon. It was our first hackathon too, so we were excited to meet the students and get started.

When working alongside a development team every day like I do, there is really very little mystique about how the team functions, communicates or works towards producing new releases. But it strikes me that those who primarily see the end result, may be curious about what happens behind the scenes.

As soon as I hear the phrase ‘this release includes a number of performance improvements’, my curiosity always gets the better of me leading me to ask questions such as, what exactly does this mean, where will users see these improvements and how do we know the system is performing better than before?

If you have attended Community Day at one of our HPCC Systems engineering summits, you will have noticed a significant number of presentations from academic institutions. This is no coincidence.
