ETSI's Centre for Testing and Interoperability and the OSM community organized the 3rd OSM Hackfest on 25-29 June 2018.

The event was hosted by Telenor in Oslo, during the OSM Mid Release 5 meeting and offered a great opportunity to share and learn with OSM developers and module leaders, while getting hands-on experience with OSM Release FOUR
