Perhaps the more important fact was that we had actual code released publicly. Here were the releases:

And yes, this last one was a little experiment in playing with JSON and python that I did.

To our amazement, our DNS team (which grew from the time we first started talking about it) received the “Best in Show” award based on the judges’ view of what we did.  Here was a photo of some of the team and some of the judges (when the winners were announced some team members had already gone to other meetings):

There will be another “DNS team” at the IETF 94 Hackathon this weekend and while I won’t be there myself, I do hope they have a great time!
