Salvatore Signorello, recently former Ph.D. collaborator of LASIGE, co-organized and conducted with a team of international researchers a hackathon on the P4Pi platform for research and teaching at the annual conference of the ACM Special Interest Group on Data Communication (SIGCOMM), held in Amsterdam, on August, 22-26, 2022.
P4Pi is a low-cost, open-source hardware platform intended for teaching and research purposes. P4Pi enables designing and deploying P4-based network devices using the Raspberry Pi board. By setting a target price tag of less than an academic book (under $100), P4Pi aims to enable a large number of academic institutes to provide hands-on experience in networking education. P4Pi is developed as part of the P4 Education Workgroup Group activities, providing both educators and practitioners with the knowledge and tools required to use P4Pi in class and at home, including tutorials, sample code, tools, and community support.
This hackathon aimed to bring together members of the computer networking community for taking part in a hands-on experience with P4Pi. More details about the event can be found on this page.
