Coding Sprint for Developers and Experimenters

Fri, 1300-1600

Organizers: Sarah Edwards, Aaron Helsinger, and Niky Riga, GPO

Dial In: 866-453-5550 ; Participant pin: 6513886#

The coding sprint session provides an opportunity for members of the GENI community to come work side by side with each other. GENI software developers will implement code on a topic selected in advance. Meanwhile, GENI experimenters can setup their own experiments with support from the GPO and other members of the GENI community.

This software development session provides an opportunity for GENI engineers to collaborate in real time on a particular software or documentation issue. The topic will be selected well in advance of the conference, based on need and key party availability. At GEC12, the topic will be AM API changes.

There are a slate of AM API changes which will be discussed and hopefully agreed to earlier in the GEC, which are described here. At the coding sprint, software developers who have an existing AM which supports the AM API are encouraged to meet in the same room and discuss details on how to implement the new AM API changes together. Specifically, we will work out issues such as consistent handling of edge cases, error handling, advertising new options supported by aggregates, and other details of the proposed API changes.

Experimenters with an idea they want to work on are encouraged to come do so in the same room as other GENI experimenters. The GPO will answer questions and provide assistance on configuring the experiment.

It is anticipated that most participants will attend in person, but a telephone and jabber chatroom will be set up for those unable to attend in person.

Snacks will be provided.

While it is not required, it would be appreciated if developers or experimenters who plan to attend send e-mail to Sarah Edwards (sedwards@bbn.com) in advance so we know how many people are coming.
