At the Old Jaffa Train Station in Tel Aviv, students, academics, startups and IDF tech units will gather on December 1-2 for a hackathon to develop advanced network technologies.

The event, named “Code your Way to the Top,” will be dedicated to RDMA (Remote Direct Memory Access) and advanced network technologies. The competing teams of up to five people will hack ideas and come up with solutions to scale up RDMA capabilities.

Winners of the top three places will receive monetary rewards: $10,000, $5,000 and $2,000, respectively.

This is the first time that a hackathon dedicated to RDMA, a state-of-the-art networking technology, will be hosted in Tel Aviv, said its organizer, Mellanox Technologies Ltd., a supplier of high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data center servers and storage systems.
