APNIC Hackathon

A group of people at APNIC First Hackathon

The 1st APNIC Hackathon at APRICOT 2018/APNIC 45, with support from RIPE NCC, was a great success, with 24 participants from eight different economies working collaboratively on IPv6. 

The 2nd APNIC Hackathon, with the theme "A DRUM" (Addressing Delegation, Routing and Usage Measurement), will be co-located with APRICOT 2019/APNIC 47. Attendance to the 2nd APNIC Hackathon is free but limited to 25 participants.

Topic: Addressing Delegation, Routing and Usage Measurement (A DRUM)

It's widely accepted that "what gets measured gets managed", although nobody is sure who said this for the first time. The second APNIC hackathon will look at measurement around Internet number resources: delegations, routing and usage.

More details will be discussed and provided at the hackathon introduction session on Friday, 22 February 2019.

APNIC thanks Facebook for sponsoring the hackathon.
