Members coming to DWeb Camp from community networks around the world are hosting a hands-on session to solve networking challenges.  As a group we will address technical challenges modelled after common problems when building mesh networks. You will learn about how to bring connectivity to a new area through a treasure hunt, and practice skills like:

- Ethernet cable patching and WiFi radio/antenna alignment
- Common terminal commands to diagnose and solve network problems
- Routing protocols and topologies
- Deploying services on the network (stretch goal)

We'll meet at the Dome of Decentralization but we'll be going around to multiple parts of Camp!


Community networks are networks collectively owned and managed by the community for non-profit and community purposes. They are constituted by collectives, indigenous communities or non-profit civil society organizations that exercise their right to communicate, under the principles of democratic participation of their members, equity, gender equality, diversity and plurality. The information on the network design and operation is open and accessible, allowing and favoring the extension of the network by the users. Community networks promote local services and content, promote net neutrality and free interconnection and transit agreements with networks offering reciprocity.
