The application process for the Hackathon@AIS is now open. The Hackathon@AIS is an event aimed at exposing engineers from the African region to Open Internet Standards development and is co-organized by the Internet Society and AFRINIC. This will be the second event in the series following a successful event held in Nairobi last year during the Africa Internet Summit.
A list of the topics that will be covered this year can be found here.
Network/Systems engineers, software developers, and computer science students are encouraged to apply as engagement in open Internet standards development can help further their careers.
The event will be held on the 9th and 10th of May 2018 in Dakar, Senegal. If you are interested in participating AND can commit to being available over the 2 days, please complete the application form. Space is limited and successful applicants will be notified and then be enrolled in various online training sessions in the build up to the event.
Fellowships will be awarded to strong applicants where possible.
Applications close on the 8th of April 2018.
