Hmmm… Pharaohs used to wear a double hat as crown, to show the unification
of Upper and Lower Egypt. Just in case you want to rule us accordingly.

Great to hear there is more people in the community :) Actually my idea was
to put people on coding since there is also a nwcrg hackaton that is
working on a codec and it needs interfacing to applications and services
inside and at the edge of the network.

I plan to toggle between the 2 tables (or try to have a common table?).

mjm (with both hats on - bicorne?)

Hi Marie-José,

here's Salvatore a post-doc researcher from the University of Lisbon where
I work with Prof. Ramos. I have been following the hackathon thread on this
list since here  we have a small team of people working with the P4
language and that could be of interest for us.

Unfortunately, we are still not sure we will have time and people on those
days to join the hackathon remotely. Yet, would it be possible to know some
more details about the specific projects teams will be asked to work on? I
only remember an email listing a few ideas (Jeffrey at Huawei), but, maybe,
possible projects have been discussed off-list.

Kind regards,

In particular look at the  *Obtaining required software* section to setup
your environment.

Printing the cheat sheet could also be a good idea:

This reference to the language is also interesting:

Look into P4 14 (as mentioned at the interim) for some available tools at
the hackaton or 16.

This page also has a list of *Code Examples* but we are still looking for
small projects for people who will not bring their own ideas and would like
to do more than just play with the code.

If you know of other resources please tell us!

And invite people who may not be on the list :)

There will be help from experienced P4 programmers from Noviflow to get you
started and help throughout.

I will post this information to the Materials in our datatracker as well as
on our GitHub site.
