Events. My experience from taking part in NANOG #84 Hackathon

Hello my friend,

collaboration, team work, team spirit… These and other similar words we are using quite often to show the importance of working together to achieve something big. Especially, if you have very limited time. This is a good description of the hackathon – the team effort to achieve something big (i.e., MVP of working product) in a short term (i.e., in 24 hours). Let’s see what’s that all about.

What Was the Hackathon?

There are many hackathons worldwide. The trend we observe now is that many technical events have hackathon as a warm-up event or a part of the main program. In this case, the event was NANOG 84, which is one of the biggest gatherings for all Service Providers, Telco equipment vendors, and system integrators in North America. It is a massive opportunity to learn some interesting things from some leading companies, like their experience and lessons learned Continue reading

#NANOG84 Hackathon: No plan survives first contact with go-getter students ‍‍‍

Austin, 12–13 February 2022

So there I was, ready to do battle in my blue corner of the ring. Together with Anton Karneliuk from Karneliuk.com — author of pyGNMI among other things — we got started on a multi-vendor NAPALM driver using gNMI as a backend.

Working around the clock in our different time zones, in full blown follow-the-moon style, we managed to get a basic NAPALM get_facts working for both Arista cEOS and Nokia SR Linux, at some point late Saturday night.

NAPALM get_facts for cEOS, using “vendor” gnmi

Working together to build the Internet of tomorrow®

On Sunday a group of students from University of Colorado Boulder joined the party, and it quickly became apparent that our hacking plans would have to change. Because important as multi-vendor compatibility issues are, inter-generation transfer of knowledge is even more critical. We already barely understand the networks we have built today — how could we ever expect the next generation to keep things running if we don’t help them understand what we did?

Long story short: I teamed up with Dinesh Kumar Palanivelu and he ended up submitting his first Pull Request: A small step for a man, but a huge win for the NANOG community!

Thanks again Continue reading

REGISTRATION FOR THE NANOG 72 HACKATHON IS OPEN

 

Welcome to the NANOG 72 Hackathon brought to you by NANOG

The NANOG 72 Hackathon will bring network operators together in a room to develop new ideas and hacks for internet networks.  Tools and software beyond those provided by vendors and existing open-source projects are needed to keep networks up and running. By gathering together at NANOG 72 to collaboratively hack on code or hardware, develop ideas, and documentation we can open up the possibilities.  And we will have fun while doing it!

 

Registration for the Hackathon is open on a space-available basis to all interested attendees of NANOG 72.  All skill levels are welcome and participants are expected to actively participate in the hacks.   Hackathon participants will be automatically added to an email list after registration is complete in order to receive information and updates. At the end of the hack participating teams will be given the opportunity to briefly present their ideas and determine the top 3 teams.  Lightning talks may be submitted to summarize the Hackathon experience and results for the larger NANOG 72 attendee base.
