ETSI's Centre for Testing and Interoperability and the OSM community are organizing the 5th OSM Hackfest on 4-8 February 2019.

The event will be hosted by CTTC in Castelldefels (Barcelona), co-located with the OSM Mid-Release SIX meeting and a SonataNFV Hackfest, offering a great opportunity to share and learn with OSM developers and module leaders, and find further synergies with SonataNFV and other research activities.

Participation to OSM Hackfests is free and open to all upon registration

This OSM Hackfest will allow new users to get familiar with OSM Release FIVE and exercise all the main functionalities, from basic operations (installation, setup, common operations, etc.) to most advanced activities, with a big focus on VNF on-boarding activities covering Day 0/1/2 operations.

In addition, experienced users and developers will have the opportunity to hack into OSM, build complex examples, fine-tune, test and demonstrate experimental features on the OSM Remote Labs network.
