Welcome to 3nd NDN Hackathon

The NDN Team is organizing our 3nd NDN Hackathon to be held on November 4-5, 2016 on the Colorado State University Campus in Fort Collins, CO. We solicit Hackathon project proposals that advance the state of NDN. Participants will have approximately 12 hours to work on the projects.

We encourage projects that:

  • directly address NDN research needs,
  • create new NDN tools or modify existing tools,
  • create or improve documentation and how-to guides.
