Hackathon presentations video
This year's hackathon will have a focus on quality. How can you help improve the quality of OpenZFS in one day?
- Improve documentation (manpages, website, etc)
- Triage bugs - look through the bug tracker and find critical issues that we should be prioritizing
- Fix bugs identified by triage process
- Review pull requests to ensure the quality of changes being made
- additional hackathon ideas

Introduction to OpenZFS
OpenZFS is an open-source storage platform. It includes the functionality of both traditional file systems and volume manager. It has many advanced features including:
- Protection against data corruption. Integrity checking for both data and metadata.
- Continuous integrity verification and automatic “self-healing” repair
- Data redundancy with mirroring, RAID-Z1/2/3 [and DRAID]
- Support for high storage capacities — up to 256 trillion yobibytes (2^128 bytes)
- Space-saving with transparent compression using LZ4, GZIP or ZSTD
- Hardware-accelerated native encryption
- Efficient storage with snapshots and copy-on-write clones
- Efficient local or remote replication — send only changed blocks with ZFS send and receive
Contributing to OpenZFS
The OpenZFS project brings together developers from the Linux, FreeBSD, illumos, MacOS, and Windows platforms. OpenZFS is supported by a wide range of companies.
There are many ways to contribute to OpenZFS including:
- OpenZFS uses GitHub to track bug reports and feature development
- A monthly OpenZFS Leadership Meeting Zoom call to discussion active development
- The annual OpenZFS Developer Summit
