Countdown to IETF Hackathon in Prague

Cisco Employee

T minus 10 days until the Hackathon is officially underway. Registration is completely full and preparation is in full swing.

In case you missed previous announcements, the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) is holding a Hackathon at IETF 93 to encourage developers to discuss, collaborate and develop utilities, ideas, sample code and solutions that show practical implementations of IETF standards. The stated goals are to:

  • Advance the pace and relevance of IETF standards activities by bringing the speed and collaborative spirit of open source development into the IETF
  • Attract developers and young people, introducing them to the community and getting them interested and contributing to the IETF

Cisco DevNet, which brought the first ever IETF Hackathon at IETF 92 in Dallas, is fully committed to an even more successful event at IETF 93 in Prague.

When: Saturday July 18 and Sunday July 19

Where: Hilton Prague, Chez Louis

Sponsored By: Cisco DevNet
