Hacktoberfest: Hazelcast Online Meetup

Hacktoberfest Online Meetup

Tuesday October 6, 2020
5:00pm to 6:00pm BST
Event is hosted online

Event Description

Hacktoberfest — brought to you by DigitalOcean in partnership with Dev & Intel — is a month-long celebration of open source software. Maintainers are invited to guide would-be contributors towards issues that will help move the project forward, and contributors get the opportunity to give back to both projects they like and others they've just discovered. No contribution is too small — bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating.

Can't make it to this online meetup? Hacktoberfest is virtual and open to participants from around the globe. Sign up to participate today.

Rules and Rewards

Hazelcast offers a number of different distributed data structures under a simple API, so that users don’t need to handle the complexity of distributed data systems by themselves. Use Hazelcast IMDG to store your data in RAM, spread and replicate it across a cluster of machines, and perform data-local computation on it. Replication gives you resilience to failures of cluster nodes. Use Hazelcast Jet to build data pipelines processing streams of events such as from message queues and database changelogs. The processing state is replicated, allowing you to scale up and down the computation without any loss of data.
