Lustre Developer Day

OpenSFS hosted a Lustre Developer Day in Portland, Oregon on April 4, 2016 (9am-5pm PT). This event was held prior to the Lustre User Group (LUG) Conference (April 5-7, 2016).

Developers – Get involved and letʼs make Lustre better!
OpenSFS hosted the Developer Day in order to provide Lustre developers and those interested in doing Lustre development a chance to meet face to face. This meeting provided newer developers a chance to listen, learn, and network while giving veteran developers a chance to present their ideas and share current work. Some goals were to bring the developer community closer together and in a very practical way, increase the bandwidth and decrease the latency of developer to developer communication.

What can I do?
Time has shown that *early* socialization of proposed code changes and in-progress changes is crucial for efficient development. Announcing early prevents redundant efforts and ensures that implemented solutions will solve a wider variety of use cases insuring codeʼs longevity.

Giving and receiving constructive criticism makes everyoneʼs code better. Without thorough peer review we run the risk of contaminating the well we all drink from. The camaraderie gained from and the personal relationships formed at developer focused meetings help to soften the chill of email when there are disagreements and increase the likelihood youʼll pick up the phone to receive the technical assistance you might need when you need it.

We hope you were able to join us for technical discussion sessions surrounding Lustre software development and detailed Lustre architecture.


Registration is now closed. Registration is limited to 50 attendees.


Attendees came with an open mind and readiness to engage in technical discussions about ways to evolve the Lustre file system. Developer Day activities will began at 9am PT and concluded at 5pm PT.
