ONF AppFest 2016
Wednesday May 16-20, 2016
University of New Hampshire Interoperability Lab
Durham, New Hampshire, USA
The Open Networking Foundation and its OpenSourceSDN initiative, supported by the ONF Testing & Interop Working Group, the ONF Testing Leadership Council, and the OpenSourceSDN Software Leadership Council are all delighted to announce the dates of the 2016 ONF/OSSDN AppFest. The AppFest will be held May 16-20, 2016, at the University of New Hampshire Interoperability Lab. The lab has played host to interop and testing events for over 25 years, and is proud to host our event in their brand-new facilities.
We will be creating a list of application developers, switch and controller vendors, industry luminaries, and other folks who will be attending, and are in the early phases of planning the event. You may not remember, but in 2015 we hosted our first-ever AppFest, held at the facilities of Ericsson, where we had applications from all over the world that were tested and socialized at the event.
Make your plans now to be a part of a fantastic event, hosted in the beautiful springtime beauty of New Hampshire, and join scores of companies, developers, and other OpenFlow and SDN experts to do performance benchmarking, application usability and testing, and OpenFlow conformance testing. We will award prizes for best-in categories, and we will have lots of fun when we’re not working.
Preliminary discussions are underway to host an network operator/deployment training day for prospective network managers and engineers who are planning to deploy SDN. We think that the combination of network operators, SDN software developers, and ONF switch manufacturers and controller providers will create a powerful synergy for everyone.
The event is free to all technical professionals, qualified students, and on limited days, to press and media. For more information or if you have a specifc question, please send an e-mail to AppFest@opennetworking.org.
