Our first code sprint was held on September 1-2, 2015 and was hosted at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories. We had a group of over 20 people that ranged from folks interested in VTK-m to experts in device hardware and software to the core VTK-m developer team. During these two days we tackled many programming challenges. Below is a summary of some of the tasks address and their status at the end of our time.

Work Status
Example of Isocontour and Rendering (in Examples directory) Merged
Optimized Uniform Point Coordinates Merged
Improvements of thrust inclusive scan on Darwin Merged
Tracked down 20% performance reduction in isosurface 15% recovered
General hexahedra isosurface Merge request
Generate hexahedra and tetrahedra data sets of any size Merge request
Proxy simulation wrapping Ran worklet, rendered externally
OpenGL interop example Interactive rendering, curated by Rob M.
