ETSI's Centre for Testing and Interoperability and the OSM community are organizing a new OSM Hackfest on 31 May to 4 June 2021. The event will be run remotely, allowing participants to join from their homes or offices.

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

Registration deadline is May 15th


The OSM#11 Hackfest will be fully dedicated to Network Function packaging and onboarding to brand new OSM Release TEN NINE (pre-view) bringing a new challenge to OSM users and developers.

During the Hackfest kick off, an overview on NF Onboarding in OSM will be provided by OSM community experts. Participants will be organized in teams based on the Network Function selected at the time of registration. Through the Hackfest week and with the mentoring of OSM community experts, they will be challenged to build a package, including NFV standardized descriptors, instantiation, Day-1 and Day-2 operations, for the NF of their choice. The last day, each team will have the opportunity to demonstrate their achievements and the best onboarding demonstration will be awarded!
