ETSI's Centre for Testing and Interoperability and the OSM community organise the OSM#11 Hackfest from 31 May to 04 June 2021. The event will be run remotely, allowing participants to join the hands-on sessions from home.

The OSM#11 Hackfest will be followed by the OSM#11 Plenary the week after.


The OSM#11 Hackfest will be fully dedicated to Network Functions packaging and onboarding to OSM Release NINE, bringing a brand-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!
