2018 was another great year for our Academic Program. In total, we collaborated with 17 different academic institutions spread across the US, Asia and Europe. Every year, we sponsor PhD research projects, provide support to supplement curriculum content, host workshops, take part in hackathons, provide internship opportunities and our Academic Partners contribute to our community events. So much was achieved in 2018. Let's look at the highlights.

Every year, students working on HPCC Systems related projects, enter this contest to showcase their achievements. This event is always a great eye opener. It attracts a very diverse range of projects which clearly demonstrate the hard work and dedication of each student. Our judges had a very difficult decision to make in choosing winners from the 10 students who presented at this year’s contest.

This is always a great event, bringing together a wide variety of our open source community users from LexisNexis Colleagues, academic and business partners, students from our intern program and our platform developers. It is an action-packed day from start to finish and our live feed allows those who can’t be there in person, to attend virtually. Walk through this exciting day with me as I revisit the day’s events.

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.
