    The HPCC Systems core developers gathered together to discuss future plans for the HPCC Systems platform. These offsite meetings happen twice a year, bringing together a team of developers that usually work remotely from each other in Europe and the USA. While the team meets regularly by conference call, these offsite meetings are the perfect opportunity to brainstorm uninterrupted in person. Lots of ground is covered during this offsite meeting week.
