ETSI's Centre for Testing and Interoperability and the OSM community are organising the next OSM Mid-Release 10 Hackfest from 08 to 12 March 2021. 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 MR#10 Hackfest will be run remotely (as it was done for the OSM#10 Hackfest). 


The OSM-MR#10 Hackfest, the very first one featuring OSM Release NINE will consist on a series of sessions allowing participants to exchange and learn about:

  • Developing OSM Primitives for automating Day1-2 operations
  • Troubleshooting, debugging and modifying code in OSM Modules
  • ... and much more!

In addition, participants will hear from key players in the OSM Ecosystem, who will share how OSM is helping them to achieve their goals and latest deployments during the OSM-MR#10 Ecosystem Day.
