Deploy Services and Create Views with Apache Ambari’s RESTful APIs
HackFest for Apache Ambari!
Sponsored by Hortonworks and Pivotal, founding members of the Open Data Platform initiative
The Apache Ambari project is aimed at making Hadoop management simpler by developing software for provisioning, managing, and monitoring Apache™ Hadoop® clusters. Ambari provides an intuitive, easy-to-use Hadoop management web UI backed by its RESTful APIs and its extensible framework.
Come join the us for a HackFest on Saturday, October 17th where you will learn how to use Ambari’s extensible framework to write an Ambari Service and create customized Views to help you understand, view, and manage your cluster resources in a multitenant Hadoop environment.
The day will start off with breakfast and a short intro to Apache Ambari and how to customize Ambari Views and deploy and manage Services. There will be plenty of examples to get you started and Apache Ambari founding committers, contributors and experts will be available throughout the day to provide assistance and guidance.
This goal of this HackFest is to:
- Introduce new contributors to the Apache Ambari community
- Learn about & use the Apache Ambari extensible framework
- Meet other talented & motivated hackers
- Demonstrate your skills and gain recognition as you productize your idea
- Get feedback from your peers
By the end of the day, you will hopefully have a working feature to share to your fellow Hackers and the Apache Ambari community!
Because this is a one day HackFest, we highly encourage you to work together in a group of 2-3. You can form a group beforehand or look for a team to join here at Devpost or at the event.
- All participants will receive a HackFest t-shirt.
- Breakfast, lunch, drinks & snacks are provided.
