*“Hackathon” Solves Real-World Tech Issue*
Code Developed during NANOG Hackathon Goes Live

Hackathons are an essential part of NANOG conferences. They are designed as
a “fail forward” space where mistakes can be made as learning, having fun +
building community is the prime objective.

And sometimes this perfect cocktail of sophisticated fun leads to solving
real-world technical issues.

The work done at the NANOG 83 Hackathon improved the PeeringDB Simple
Search and resolved a vital search issue. Thus, allowing PeeringDB (a
freely available, user-maintained, database of networks, and a go-to
location for interconnection data) to provide more relevant search results
for the end-user.

The developed code during the Hackathon,  officially went live early
Wednesday morning (Jan. 12).

NANOG had the opportunity to catch up with PeeringDB product manager Leo
Vegoda to learn more.
