OpenWrt supports this year's "Wireless Battle of the Mesh - Building Community Networks for Fun and Non-Profit".
The event aims to bring together people from across the globe who are interested in community networks, including wireless mesh network technologies, fiber infrastructure, Do-It-Yourself Internet Access Providers, and more generally how to create and maintain a thriving community of people involved in building their own networks.
We envision 4 days of expert presentations, practical workshops, hacking sessions, and fruitful discussions: whether you are a mesh networking enthusiast, community networking activist, protocol developer, or have an interest in networking in general, come and join the event!
The Battlemesh is free of charge and open for all.
This year, the event will take place from Monday 19th to Wednesday 22nd of September, 2022 in Rome, Italy! It will be followed by the RomHack Camp on September 23-25, also in Rome. Check out more information at https://www.battlemesh.org/BattleMeshV14
OpenWrt participated in the Battlemesh v13 online edition in 2020.
We do not have an OpenWrt conference, mostly because organizing such an event is a lot of none technical work.
BattleMesh V14 will not be an official OpenWrt conference, but it would be nice to meet the OpenWrt community in Rome. We can still hack on hardware, drink some beer and talk about OpenWrt and other topics. If you are interested in giving a talk or a workshop about a topic related to OpenWrt, please propose it for Battlemesh V14.
If you do not want to organize a place to stay on your own you have to book the accommodation package, BEFORE Monday, July 11, 2022: https://fusolab.net/battlemesh
