Named Data Networking (NDN) Project Newsletter for March 2016

The NDN project team compiles and publishes this newsletter monthly
to inform the community about recent activities, technical news,
meetings, publications, presentations, code releases, and upcoming
events. You can find these newsletters posted on the Named Data
Networking Project blog.


* On 20-23 March 2016 we held the 2nd NDN Hackathon
  and Project Retreat. We welcomed over 30 participants for the
  Hackathon and over 50 for the Retreat to the University of
  California at San Diego campus in La Jolla, CA.  The retreat
  focused on science applications, technical discussions with a
  focus on NFD development, autoconfiguration IoT over NDN, and
  architectural principles and future collaboration and funding
  opportunities.  For final agenda, slides, and breakout outcomes
  see the web page at http://www.caida.org/workshops/ndn/1603/ .
  For the final list of projects and links to code from the Hackathon,

* We released version 0.11 of the the NDN Common Client Library for
  Java (jNDN). You can find code and documentation on the web at
