The advent of SDN has ignited a revolution within the networking market. While 2013 was primarily focused on “what is SDN” and “why SDN”, 2014 is focused on “how to deploy SDN”, and we’ve already seen a large number of early deployments spring up in both the enterprise and service provider markets. As a leading force of change in the industry, the ONF is embarking on a series of educational initiatives on both deployment and application development to demystify and open up the foundations of SDN and OpenFlow® to the wider market. The ONF had recently commissioned Andrew Pearce, a 20-year veteran network programmer and currently software architect at Wiretap Labs (a custom software development firm), to design and develop an OpenFlow® network application on the OpenDaylight controller.
In this educational webinar, Andy will share his experiences and will cover the following key topics:
- Understanding OpenFlow® from a developer’s perspective
- Designing an OpenFlow® application
- Working with OpenDaylight and OpenFlow® switches
- Key learnings, pitfalls and tips
- The future of the network programmer
Join the ONF and Andy Pearce as we embark on the journey towards building a thriving marketplace for SDN applications.
