Apache Jackrabbit : Oak Hackathon September 2012

The September hackathon will be co-located with .adaptTo() 2012 - Berlin. It will start Tuesday September 25 at 9:00 (one day before the conference starts). In this hackathon we want to improve the Oak code base, but also give an opportunity for newcomers to learn about the project and take first steps. If there is interest the Oak hackathon can be extended as a side track during the whole conference.


pro!vision GmbH
Wilmersdorfer Str. 50
10627 Berlin

NOTE: this is not the same location as where .adaptTo() Berlin will take place later the same week.

To find the entrance to pro!vision's offices I was given the following advice: "the entrance is directly beside 'Deichmann' and above it reads 'Techniker Krankenkasse'". The way to our meeting room in the 1st floor will be signposted.

Summary of the Hackathon

  • The Hackathon was quite a success even though not too much hacking has actually taken place. Half of the roughly 10 attendees where new to the project so we decided to turn this more into an intro session. Jukka and Michael gave a preview on their Oak presentation for .adaptTo 2012 and Jukka went through some coding examples showing how to write a custom commit hook for Oak. The code examples will become part of the NodeState model documentation. See https://github.com/apache/jackrabbit-oak/blob/trunk/doc/nodestate.md.
