Technologies and Champions

Champions are individuals familiar with a given technology who have volunteered to help get others get up and running with that technology.

Champions should:

  • Before the Hackathon:
    • Update wiki with details about their project
    • Share ideas and any preparation materials or requirements with potential attendees via the hackathon list
    • Recruit participants from associated working groups, open source projects, etc.
  • At the Hackathon: 
    • Create and display a poster that introduces their technology and makes them easy to find
    • Make themselves available to answer questions and help others
    • Hack on things themselves in their copious free time

Additional champions for new or existing technologies are welcome at any time, send to hackathon@ietf.org

Projects from past Hackathons cover a range of technologies spanning almost all IETF work areas, including BGP, BPF, CoAP, DNS, HTTP 2.0, I2NSF, QUIC, SRv6, TLS 1.3, YANG/NETCONF/RESTCONF, and many others. Details on all planned projects are provided on the Hackathon Wiki.

Don’t see anything that interests you? Then add your preferred project to the list, sign up as its champion and show up to work on it. Note: you must login to the wiki to add content. If you do add a new technology, we strongly suggest that you send email to the hackathon@ietf.org to let others know. You may generate interest in your technology, and find other people who want to contribute to it.

To edit the wiki, log in using your IETF datatracker login credentials. If you don't yet have an IETF datatracker account, you may get one by going here [https://datatracker.ietf.org/accounts/create/] and requesting a new account.
