Babel hackathon, at LeLoop, on 19-21 July 2013

A hackathon dedicated to the Babel wireless mesh routing protocol will be held during three days in Paris, at the LeLoop.org hackerspace. The event primarily aims at testing the new features of Babel (diversity, RTT metric, source-specific routing, etc...) in a real-world environment.



From Friday 19 July, 9.00, to Sunday 21 July, 22.00


GareXP, home of LeLoop.

  • 15h Matthieu Boutier: "Source-specific routing" (in French)


  • From 15h: lightning talks (registration on Friday and Saturday)


  • From 16h on Saturday and from 14h on Sunday: "Babel pour les débutants" by Err404. Environ 30 minutes, je vais expliquer comment utiliser Babel avec une configuration de base sur GNU/Linux Debian (en français, mais avec des bouts d'anglais selon la demande). "Babel for Noobs", about 30 minutes, I will explain how to use Babel with base config on GNU/Linux Debian (in french, but with pieces of english on demand)


Different setups will be in place during the hackathon. One of the goals is to test and evaluate these setups.

  • Babel-z evaluation, using a network of multi-radio routers (Juliusz & Benjamin)
  • IPv6 multihoming demo (Matthieu)
  • Setting up hybrid routers: classical AP, with traffic routed through the Babel backbone (Baptiste)
