P4 Hackathon in Frankfurt

An event organized by the P4 Education Working Group

Held in Frankfurt, Germany on March 29, 2019

The P4 Hackathon aims to develop novel, proof-of-concept data plane applications, and to support the open-source community through the development of tools and infrastructure.

The hackathon is intended for P4 users of all levels – from beginners to experts.

We are keen to meet new people, see new faces, and create new collaborations between (and within) academia and industry!
