nanog on the road events provide nanog content covering everything from technical services, the status of ipv6 adoption, current registry policy, to developments and hot topics in internet governance. It is a one-day event providing professional education and networking and is held in various locations on various dates throughout the year. The goal is to get those in attendance up to speed and solicit discussion topics that may not be on the agenda. There is also an optional "ask nanog" session which allows attendees to speak one-on-one with members of the board, program committee, and staff members who will share their experience and further explain the importance of nanog helping to make the internet better.
nanog hackathons are held the day before nanog meetings. This is an event bringing people together in a room to develop new ideas and hacks related to internet networking. Nanog also helps support networking and engineering education through scholarships. Nanog provides scholarships to students in a variety of areas including network engineering, computer engineering, electrical engineering, telecommunications, and computer science.
