We need you! The NANOG Hackathon Committee is calling for project
developers/maintainers to participate in the NANOG 85 Hackathon

Wednesday, May 25, 2022 - Intro/Tutorial/Team Formation (via Zoom)

Saturday + Sunday, June 4-5, 2022 - Hacking (via Zoom and/or in Montréal)

An essential part of NANOG conferences, our Hackathons are designed to be
both fun and engaging, as well as provide a platform that builds community
and fosters greater networking and programming knowledge. NANOG Hackathons
are hands-on, and educational at their core — directly supporting the most
critical aspects of our mission. All levels are welcome to participate, and
as always, Hackathon registration
<https://www.nanog.org/events/nanog-85-hackathon/registration/> is free.

Theme: Projects that Make a Difference

The NANOG 85 Hackathon will focus on the theme of making tools work better
for ordinary users. For this Hackathon, we are looking to expand the reach
of the event to bring in non-developers who have an itch to get something
fixed. So this is your opportunity to work with other community members to
fix that itch and make life better for everyone. The improvements can
include better tutorials, documentation, cookie-cutter templates that
people can build on when accessing an API - in short, stuff that you would
like to see that enables better use of the tools you use or want to use.

Of course, we will welcome our usual range of project proposals if you want
to dive deep into the code and hack in a communal environment, so send in
those proposals as well.

We are asking those who wish to bring a project be prepared to generally
cover the items listed here.


   Provide an intro/mini-tutorial on the skills needed to successfully hack
   on said project

   Use time between the intro (May 25th) and the Hackathon (June 4-5) to be
   available for introductions and general questions relating to the project

   Create a “ReadMe” file or webpage with the following information

      Languages used in the project

      Good first issues (if using GitHub on the project)

      How to set-up/run tests in the development environment

      How to use sandbox environment (if you have one)

      Documentation updates/issues that need review/correcting

In exchange for your work, NANOG will offer you a complimentary
registration for NANOG 85 taking place in Montréal June 6-8, 2022. Learn
more about the Hackathon schedule here:

If you are interested in bringing a project to the NANOG 85 Hackathon,
