Subject Re: Soliciting Hackathon Ideas
Date Wed, 07 Feb 2018 00:37:40 GMT
A couple of ideas from the performance related working group:

-Use protobuf arenas for all non-trivial outbound master messages (easy)
This can be done piecemeal.
-Use move semantics (take a Message&&) in all of the master message
handlers to reduce copying (medium) This one can be done piecemeal. For
example Master::statusUpdate would be a good one to start with.
-Audit the Registrar code to use move semantics to reduce copying (medium)

If there are any UI programmers:

-Consider a webui "refresh", try to find a new set of fonts and style,
could be fun.
