Next Euca hackfest: AppScale

Our next hackfest is this Friday, August 10th, from 11am to 2pm Pacific Time, in #eucalyptus-devel on freenode.  (If you show up at #eucalyptus or #eucalyptus-meeting, we will kindly direct you the right way.)  We will be working on integrating with AppScale.

You don’t know about AppScale, you say?  Well, you should.  AppScale is an open source platform for  Google App Engine apps.  The idea is that many applications designed to run on Google App Engine should “just work” with AppScale and your own cloud infrastructure.

There’s an Ubuntu-based AppScale image already built and ready to go for Eucalyptus; in the next couple of days, we’re going to get that running on our Eucalyptus Partner Cloud, and then we will see if we can get some of this App Engine code running on top of it.  By the end of the hackfest, we hope to have a few of these sample apps up and running, and filed away as Eucalyptus recipes.

If you want to join in the fun, just drop a line to the Eucalyptus community list and we’ll be happy to set you up with all the tools you’ll need.  See you on IRC.
