IETF 100 Hackathon: Bringing Innovation and Running Code to the IETF

Megan Kruse
By Megan KruseManager, Technology Outreach and Strategic Planning

Interested in contributing running code to the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)? Do you see a problem with DNS, DNSSEC, IPv6, TLS, or something else that you want to help fix?

The IETF is holding its next meeting in Singapore in November. Just before IETF 100, on 11-12 November, is a Hackathon to encourage developers to discuss, collaborate and develop utilities, ideas, sample code and solutions that show practical implementations of IETF standards.

Check out the Hackathon Wiki to learn more about how to register, get involved in a project, add your own topic of interest, or even participate remotely if you can’t make it to Singapore next month. You can also read more about a past Hackathon in this IETF Journal article.

As an added bonus, there are some prizes on the line! A panel of judges announces winners in several categories at the end of the event, with winners choosing from sponsor-donated prizes.

Remember, the IETF needs operational expertise to make sure its protocols and standards actually work in real life networks.
