20 October 2022 – Brussels, Belgium: Gaia-X, the organisation championing autonomy in data exchanging, concluded their virtual Hackathon on 26 and 27 September 2022.
The Gaia-X Open-Source Software (OSS) Community hosted its fifth Hackathon, connecting with close to three hundred participants. During the two-day event, we had ten sessions focusing not only on what it takes to be Gaia-X compliant but also different technologies that are needed to build a federation.
In addition, an Ask Me Anything slot was available for newcomers, an Introduction to Self-Descriptions and Gaia-X Compliance was available for beginners, and specific technical challenges were available for the advanced to hack on. More than seventy Self-Descriptions (SD) were created during the event, with real participants and service offerings available as examples for anyone who needs help creating their own SD files.
