If you want to contribute your own idea to this list, please email Lorraine Chapman. Use our project suggestion template to help you gather the information we will need. If you have an idea and would like to discuss it with one of our developers, you can pose questions and comment in the Contributors Forum on the HPCC Systems Website.

  1. Additional Embedded Languages in ECL
    Clojure, Haskell, MariaDB, MatLab, MongoDB, ODBC, Postgres, SAS, Scala, SQL, or suggest one!
  2. Additional external data stores
    Ceph, S3 or suggest one!
  3. Cluster Deployment with Juju Charm
    Convert our current implementation to use the new Charm Helpers framework (python) and add support for new HPCC components 
  4. DFU Spray from zip/gzip files
    Create a plugin for spraying from a ZIP/GZIP archive without decompressing the content
  5. Implement an IOT pluggable protocol for ROXIE
    Add support for pluggable protocols currently being used in IOT projects
  6. Machine Learning Algorithms on the HPCC Platform
    Approximate n-tile, Text Search Bundle
  7. MPI Proof of Concept
    Replace existing socket-based message passing api with an open-source MPI
  8. Text Search Bundle
  9. Port Roxie to a different UDP layer
  10. Investigate how well the current implementation achieves the goal of getting data from slaves to serves as quickly and reliably as possible on today's systems, and investigate whether there is a third party library or alternative protocol that may be worth consideration.
  11. Continuous Integration of roxie query / data deployments using Jenkins
  12. System self health check
    Design and implement a tool to provide an overall check to everything is working as expected across components, from a button within ECL Watch
  13. Provide SELinux Policies for the HPCC-Platform installation on Linux environments
    Build SELinux domains for hpccsystems-platform services.
