Hello all,

Next month I'll be attending HackIllinois (https://hackillinois.org/) as an open-source mentor. It's a huge student-run hackathon at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, running from February 23rd to the 25th. Students from a multitude of schools will be attending (they even bus them in). The hackathon has an open-source focus, and while there will be many projects for the students to work on, I want to make sure Mesos gets some attention too.

I am asking you all for open issues and new ideas for small, beginner-friendly projects that could fit a two-day Hackathon project. For Mesos, I'm looking through our open issues labeled "easyfix", "beginner", or "newbie", which actually returns 74 results! If you have anything in particular that you think would be a good fit, please let me know. I'd like to go with a list of vetted issues so I don't accidentally start some students in on a giant can of worms. Our excellent new Beginner Contributor Guide will be a huge help too.



P.S. If any of you also want to attend, let me know, and I'll get you in touch with their director.
