ACM SIGCOMM 2021 HACKATHON: P4 on Raspberry Pi (P4Pi)

A SIGCOMM 2021 Virtual Hackathon presented by the P4 Language Consortium Education Workgroup
August 23, 2021 https://conferences.sigcomm.org/sigcomm/2021/p4pi-hackathon.html

P4Pi is a new low cost, open source hardware platform intended for teaching and research purposes. P4Pi enables designing and deploying P4-based network devices using the Raspberry Pi platform and is based on the T4P4S compiler. By setting a target price tag of less than an academic book (under $100), P4Pi aims to enable a large number of academic institutes to provide hands-on experience in networking education. 


P4Pi is developed as part of the P4 Education Workgroup activities. The team aims to provide both educators and practitioners the knowledge and tools required to use P4Pi in class and at home, including tutorials, sample code, tools and community support.

This hackathon aims to bring together members of the networking community for the following goals:

  • Introduce P4Pi to networking educators, enable them to get started with the platform and practice its use in lab-like environment.

  • Develop more teaching and supporting materials for the P4Pi ecosystem.

  • Enable researchers from all levels of expertise to develop P4Pi-based concepts and early-stage projects, and to stimulate collaborations between new users.

The hackathon will build upon the virtual nature of the event to allow both P4 experts and newcomers to take part in the hands-on experience. Tutorial materials will be available online, and participants will be working in teams to achieve different goals.

Thanks to a grant from the Network Programming Initiative, we will be able to provide platforms to a few dozens of participants, limited by registration time and potential export bans and limitations. However, it is not mandatory to have a Raspberry Pi in order to take part in the hackathon.
