Sponsoring a hackathon for OpenBSD PF

My team has the privilege this week of sponsoring the OpenBSD N2K16 Network Hackathon in Prague.

With help from the local development team in Prague and by navigating a number of processes myself, I’ve made it through all the logistics required for us to rent out the physical location of the hackathon at Charles University. In addition to the hackathon room, we’re in charge of all of the food, beer, and social events (which may be even more important than the room itself).

Our main focus from an engineering perspective has been to make PF more SMP friendly and a few other areas that will improve things for us.
