ASTERICS DADI Technology Forum 1 Hack-a-thon page
Traditionally Tech Forum meetings have included a free-form session designed to allow participants - be they software engineers or scientists - to meet and discuss technical and scientific details related to VO work they are currently undertaking. These sessions became known as the “Hack-a-thon” - the clue to their purpose being in the name. Hack-a-thons proved extremely popular and successful and we plan to continue them in the current project; hopefully with the wider remit they will be even more successful.
A white board or log will be available for people to note down areas they wish to discuss and the session itself will provide place and opportunity for informal meetings.
This page to be used to record outcomes and conclusions.

Discussion on how to describe as VO resources computational resources like VM, middleware environments, libraries and applications (in an Everything as a Service scenario). Use cases started from an INAF/CADC collaboration, LSST and GAIA use cases.
Tasks towards such a goal require: a survey of the most used code languages and cloud technologies; a check on whether exist already description models for such resources to be re-used inside a registry system for discovery; a resource extension for computational resources; a protocol to access those resources programmatically.
Main IVOA WG interested seems to be GWS, with connections to DAL, Apps and Registry.
A slightly richer report on this hackathon can be found in this attachment.

Discussion about time slots and presentations to be reserved for SimDAL in the Sydney interop DAL sessions. Given the few Theory IG participants in Sydney it could be that only a review talk for SimDAL will be provided.
