Memcached Hackathon

We will be having a Memcached Hackathon next tuesday the 15th, starting at 8:30. We have commandeered a BOF at the MySQL User's Conference and will be running the hackathon till late.

Current topics of interest:
  • Binary protocol for libmemcached
  • Storage Interface from Toru Maesaka

    Discussions on #memcached on Freenode to set other agenda items.

    BTW You do not need to be registered at the conference to come.
  • glasses

    "Please Remember to Blog..."

    I keep getting these notes, sometimes automated, and sometimes not, from people asking me to blog about the Memcached Tutorial next week.

    What is the problem?

    It is sold out, and I have a good list of folks who want me to sneak them in already. I'd say there was space under the podium, but that gives me flashbacks to "Police Academy" films.

    Maybe see if dormando wants to stand there while giving his half of the presentation?

    I'll stick t the wireless microphone.

    Anyways, I keep smiling each time I see the requests, knowing that few of them read the reports on how the conference is going (and props to Jay Pipes who has to constantly deal with people who aren't reading what he is writing).

    Jay has far more patience then myself.

    Still, if I blog about it, is that the key to getting people to stop asking me to blog about it?
