Participant Preparation and Prerequisites

  • Bring a laptop on which you are comfortable developing software
    • Some projects may require installing additional software
  • Familiarity with the technology area(s) in which you plan to participate will certainly help
  • Champions will have posters describing their project(s) and be available to answer questions at the start and throughout the hackathon
  • Your laptop is the default development platform for each technology
  • Anything else that is required will be provided, such as VMs you can install on our laptop or access from your laptop
    • Installing and becoming familiar with VirtualBox or something similar will help
    • Note to champions: if planning to make use of VMs, please bring on USB drives to make available to others as download times can be painful
  • Specific coding languages are called out for some of projects (e.g. Python, Java), but this is heavily dependent on the project(s) you choose
  • Wireless access to the IETF network will be provided, and from there to the outside world
  • Wired access to the IETF network is available by request only
  • Git/GitHub is commonly used for open source projects. Familiarizing yourself with it is recommended.
  • Champions for each technology are encouraged to share any other things they think would be helpful in preparation for the hackathon

Remote participation

  • Participating in person is preferred, but we understand not everyone can travel. If you want to participate remotely, please contact the champion(s) for that project to determine how best to coordinate.
  • Jabber Room: hackathon@jabber.ietf.org

IPR and Code Contribution Guideline

All hackathon participants are free to work on any code. The rules regarding that code are what each participant's organization and/or open source project says they are. The code itself is not an IETF Contribution. However, discussions, presentations, demos, etc., during the hackathon are IETF Contributions (similar to Contributions made in working group meetings). Thus, the usual IETF policies apply to these Contributions, including copyright, license, and IPR disclosure rules.
