Report on SDN Hackathon at ONS 2014
At Open Networking Summit 2014, we co-organized an exciting SDN Hackathon, which had 24 individuals form 6 teams and build some really cool SDN applications. Teams comprised of participants from diverse backgrounds (engineers, product managers and architects, from different parts of the world (Brazil, Japan, China, Switzerland, USA) and from both industry and academia. True to the hackathon spirit, the participants met with each other and formed teams at the ONS floor before picking a project to hack on.
The SDN hackathon was conceived as a forum for developers to build useful applications for SDN, in addition to serving as a showcase for the ease of programming across different controllers. The top three teams that built the applications with the most impact, feature depth, technical strength and uniqueness/creativity were awarded cash prizes, thanks to sponsorship from Khosla Ventures!
