What is the ONOS Hackathon?
The ONOS Hackathon at ONOS Build 2016 will be an event spanning the length of the conference where participants will develop a new feature into ONOS. The new feature could be as simple as a new small application on ONOS or a new subsystem within ONOS.
What is the long-term goal of this hackathon?
The idea is to encourage developers to build new applications or new features into ONOS.
How will the hackathon be run?
Each team should be composed of at least two people and up to a maximum of four people. Each team should come with an idea of what to build for ONOS, we will also propose some ideas for those teams that lack some inspiration ;). Teams will build their feature over the duration of the event and then teams will be expected to present their work to the conference where a jury will select the winner.
Who can participate (ie. what basic technical expertise do you need)?
Anyone can participate. Of course, if you are interested in networking technology and can write code, that's even better but the hackathon is definitely not limited to coders. It is up to the team leader to select and build his/her team, so if the team leader decides that he needs a circus juggler or a marketing expert on his team to get the work done and win the top prize, then that's totally fine.
What is the maximum number of participants per team?
Each team should be composed at least 2 people and up to 4 people.
What are the prizes ?
The tentative prizes are:
1st prize - $2,000 USD
2nd prize - $1,000 USD
3rd prize - $500 USD
NB: we will confirm the final amount early October.
