2018 Hackfest Planning

  • LA Hackfest retrospective
    • “Day 0” went well, good attendance -- but, only 6 of 9 projects had representation.  Also, need more than just 1 day to get folks up the learning curve.
    • Last day of Hackfest was lightly attended and lower energy.
    • Good cross-project discussions, major progress by having facetime with WGs, but could use more overall structure in advance of the Hackfest.
    • Seems to be two orthogonal efforts -- roadshow to get regional folks up the learning curve vs. cross-project collaboration and hacking; could make sense to run these entirely independent of each other.
      • Suggestion to have quarterly Hackfests rotating between centers of gravity -- Asia (Shanghai, HKG, etc.), US West Coast (SF), US East Coast (NY), EU (London/Amsterdam/Berlin) -- one day focuses on cross-project collaboration and WGs, one day focuses on project-specific hacking
      • Separately, create a roadshow for newbies.
  • Dubai Hackfest -- many from the technical community expressed an inability to travel for this proposed Hackfest, likely will not move forward.
  • June 27-29 | Amsterdam (registration | draft agenda)

  • Design effective operational platform for blockchain management (Baohua Yang)
  • Algorithmic Dispute Resolution in Construction (Jeremy Barnett)
  • Hyperledger fabric SDK-py (Kai Chen)

  • Simulating Hyperledger Networks with Shadow OR Fuzzing Hyplerledger Software (Dave Huseby)
    • No objections to moving forward with this set of Mentors

Authorization to publish the Hyperledger Sawtooth security audit report

  • A request was made that the audit report is presented in the context of being prior to 1.0; Dave Huseby noted that he will make notes in the wiki, as well as a blog post providing further context.
  • VOTE:  unanimously approved.

Quarterly WG updates

  • Ram Jagadeesan provided an Architecture WG update
    • What is the mix of participants?
      • Architects from different projects, but would be ideal to get folks doing active design in projects to be more involved.
    • A suggestion was made to consider moving the call time earlier to help accommodate for Asia folks (especially the Hyperledger Iroha community)
  • March 15th:  Requirements WG update (Clive)

Quarterly project updates

  • Sean Bohan provided Hyperledger Indy update
  • Next week:  Hyperledger Burrow update

1.0 before leaving incubation?

  • Is this a desire or a firm requirement?  What are the implications?
  • Please continue discussion via email thread
