ETSI's Centre for Testing and Interoperability and the OSM community are organizing this OSM Hackfest on 1-5 June 2020. The event will be run remotely, allowing participants to join the hands-on sessions from home.

IMPORTANT: Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and associated travel / hosting restrictions, the OSM#9 Hackfest will be run remotely (as it was done for the OSM-MR8 Hackfest). 


This OSM Hackfest will allow new users to get familiar with OSM Release SEVEN and exercise all the new functionalities.

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