Discussion created by eckelcu on Dec 30, 2015

Jari Arkko, IETF Chair, posted Year 2015 and Beyond | IETF Blog today. In it, he notes the following:


For me the big thing was focusing more on open source and bringing back the running code aspect to the IETF. Our Hackathon events have now seen their first year, and grown to a successful ~100 person event. We are looking forward to the second year, and the next event will be April 2-3, just before IETF-95 in Buenos Aires.
