The first-ever ONF Bootcamp, held on May 23rd, was a day-long event targeted at business and technology leaders to help newer ecosystem members learn to navigate and benefit from the SDN/NFV/Cloud transformation taking place across the networking industry. The agenda featured keynotes on the Network of the Future by Cathy Southwick from AT&T, and Networking & Orchestration in the Open Source Landscape by Arpit Joshipura from The Linux Foundation.

The day also featured in-depth sessions on the CORD platform and its use cases, along with an overview & roadmap of the ONOS project. The bootcamp was very well-received, with the attendees participating enthusiastically in the interactive sessions that focused on engaging with open source communities.

Presentations from these sessions have been posted online and you can check out videos from this event here.

We are also pleased to announce our second edition of the ONOS build will be held from September 20 - 22 in Seoul, Korea. This three-day event will bring together more than 300 ONOS contributors from across the globe to share, learn and hack together to help take the ONOS project to new heights.

The CORD community will be holding its first-ever developer conference, the CORD Build 2017, from November 7 - 9 in the Bay Area, to help core contributors align behind a common vision and roadmap.

If you’d like to be involved in helping us plan and organize these events, contact Director of Community, David Boswell @ david@onlab.us.
