Join us for the NANOG 67 Hackathon – a one-day event Sunday, June 12, 2016, at the Fairmont Chicago Millennium Park. The NANOG 67 Hackathon will bring network operators together in a room to develop new ideas and hacks for automating production internet networks. Tools and software beyond those provided by vendors and existing open-source projects are needed to keep those networks up and running. By gathering together at NANOG 67 to collaboratively hack on code or hardware, develop ideas, and documentation we can open the possibilities of holistic network management through automation. And we will have fun while doing it! Registration for the Hackathon is open on a space-available basis to all interested attendees of NANOG 67. All skill levels are welcome, but participants are expected to actively participate in the hacks. The theme of the Hackathon is holistic network management through automation. Proposals of hacks will be solicited from registrants and published prior to NANOG 67 to allow the forming of teams of 1-6 individuals to work on hacks. And several example hacks will be available for inspiration. A standardized hacking environment for prototyping will be provided or teams are welcome to use their own computing resources. At the end of the hack the teams will be given the chance to briefly present their ideas and hacks and judges will award token prizes to the top 3 teams. We expect to submit a lightning talk at to summarize the Hackathon experience and results for the larger NANOG 67 attendee base. Registration for the Hackathon is separate from the NANOG 67 conference. There is no fee to attend, but registration is required.
