Hackathon in Panama: Registration Is Now Open!

28/08/2019

Registration is now open for the Hackathon that is set to take place in Panama during the LACNIC 32 LACNOG 2019 event.

Geared towards IT professionals and advanced students of careers in technology, this Hackathon will bring together, for two days, anyone who wishes to participate in a competition to explore and improve different projects developed by the Regional Internet Addresses Registry for Latin America and the Caribbean.

Participants will work on three new LACNIC projects:  the MiLACNIC API, the UpDown in the Resource Certification System (RPKI), and LACNIC’s Internet Routing Registry (IRR).

The LACNIC Hackathon will be open to participants who are not specifically qualified in these skills. “All you need is your own computer, focus and a desire to work,” Gerardo Rada, Head of Systems Development at LACNIC, noted.

First, each project leader will present their initiatives, after which participants may either work as part of a team or individually.

It is expected that participants’ skills and abilities will help improve these new projects designed by LACNIC.

The LACNIC 32 Hackathon will take place on Sunday October 6th from 12:00 to 18:00 and during the morning and afternoon of Monday 7th October.
