As soon as you've booked your travelling ticket, add your information here, so that we may organize a pick-up if enough people arrive at the same time and place.

Name Date and Time Location
Dummy Entry 2015-08-06, 16:00 Airport CRL
Another Dummy Entry 2015-08-06, 17:00 Station Aachen Hbf


This shall mainly be a development and not a talk event. Nevertheless, it's the first time so many of us meet together and some people may have something to tell. Enter your ideas in this list please.

  • I will give a short opening talk on Friday - Colin Finck (talk) 17:38, 3 June 2015 (UTC)


Add everything you want to have discussed/worked on during the Hackfest to this list. Finish your comment with ~~~~ to add your signature.

  • Major work towards a 0.4 release - Colin Finck (talk) 10:38, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
    • Mm (image sections in particular) is one of the major unresolved issues. Getting a few people together to have a look at CORE-8384 together might be fruitful.
      actctx is another, but maybe Aleksey already has a Grand Plan for that.
      Some work on ntuser would be the third thing on my mind, but not sure if that's a good candidate for in-person hacking (also depends on whether we'll have the right people). -ThFabba (talk) 09:13, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
    • If applicable, some work for MM/CC or TCP/IP stack.
  • Having several developers and testers in a big room should greatly simplify working on real hardware and application compatibility problems.
    Who would join these efforts and what application/hardware should we focus on? - Colin Finck (talk) 17:38, 3 June 2015 (UTC)
    • The Dell D531 (AMD SB600) EHCI controller problems probably require a hardcore hacking session to move forward at this point, so that's probably a good candidate. CORE-9296 -ThFabba (talk) 09:13, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
    • Regarding applications, the three voted apps come to mind. I'm not sure where we are with that, but this would be a good opportunity to make progress wherever we're currently stuck. -ThFabba (talk) 09:13, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
    • Office 2003 apps (Word/Excel/Powerpoint) may be very useful for us for finding and fixing bugs in kernel or Win32 subsystem. Ctasan (talk) 14:42, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Who would join a concentrated effort on a new ReactOS Website design based on Victor's doc? - Colin Finck (talk) 17:38, 3 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Implement the storport driver in order to PnP-enable our storage driver stack. Ekohl (talk) 14:17, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
    • Fixing problems with USB mass storage class devices. (not booting from here/not recognizing the device) Ctasan (talk) 14:42, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Implement MMC. Ekohl (talk) 14:17, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Fix USB hub support. Ekohl (talk) 14:17, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
    • It's pretty much completely unimplemented as I understand. I'd certainly be up for that. Also a requirement to get USB working on the "SBC" Indiegogo perk, so nice to have for Community Edition. -ThFabba (talk) 09:13, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
    • Fixing certain problems with USB devices (for example, ReactOS should detect USB devices while booting and boot properly. Also there should be no BSoD when ejecting USB devices) Ctasan (talk) 14:42, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Fixing Plug and Play for USB (if required, for other devices too) Ctasan (talk) 14:42, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Adding icons and notifications to the system tray for USB devices. Ctasan (talk) 14:42, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Create a new setup (with GUI) (User talk:nicoalta01) 21.14, 08 june 2015 (UTC)
  • Get the new added UDF driver in shape (User talk:EmuandCo) 11.19, 21 june 2015 (UTC)


If you bring any specific hardware or need some for your work, which you cannot bring yourself, just add it to this list. We can centrally organize this then. Finish your comment with ~~~~ to add your signature.

  • Will bring 16-Port Unmanaged Gigabit Switch - Colin Finck (talk) 10:38, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Will bring one ReactOS Testing Laptop as well as a serial null-modem cable, probably won't use it myself during the event - Colin Finck (talk) 10:38, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Will bring a little NAS (PXE-Server), a Gigabit Switch, a WLAN-Router and some cables. Ekohl (talk) 14:22, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Will bring my little Workstation and a ReactOS Testing Laptop. Ekohl (talk) 14:22, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Will bring my various USB gadgets. Hubs, ethernet/wifi/sound card sticks etc. -ThFabba (talk) 09:17, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Will probably bring the Dell D531 and the "ReactOS SBC" perk at least. Might need a monitor/keyboard for the latter depending on whether or not I come by car -ThFabba (talk) 09:17, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
    • Ok, reserved a monitor and keyboard for you here - Colin Finck (talk) 06:55, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
