You are invited to attend Hack-a-thon II, Austin, Texas, September
22-25, two days prior to and then in conjunction with the Power
Architecture Developer Conference.

In this 4 day event, Terra Soft will host a 6 node PS3 cluster and
hands-on workshop for the installation of Yellow Dog Linux, compute
image deployment via Y-HPC, and use of Torque and Moab for job
management. Hack-a-thon attendees are given opportunity to test their
own parallel and distributed code.

Event participants will enjoy:

          - Support from Mercury engineers who will answer questions
           and assist with code development using the MultiCore Plus
           SDK for PS3.

          - Support from IBM engineers and researchers, Terra Soft

          - Interactive peer-to-peer presentations and forums.

          - As with Hack-a-thon I, an open, inviting, creative

          - One free, raffled PS3.

          - A discount voucher to reduce the cost of attending the
           Power Architecture Developer Conference.

Programmers and cluster users of all experience are welcome.
Availability is limited due to the number of available Cell systems
and facility accommodations, so please register soon.
