I’d like to thank Satish, Kalyan and everyone on the Huawei India ONOS Team for running an ONOS hackathon as part of their recent OpenStack meetup in Bangalore. This included a presentation that had information about ONOS and its advantages compared to other controllers and an overview of the ONOS architecture. That was followed by a lab in the afternoon where people were helped to set up an ONOS developer environment and then showed how to write a sample ONOS application. Here are some photos from the event and the organizers also put together a full summary of the meetup.
It’s really exciting to see people sharing information about ONOS with others in their area. This is one of the big benefits of having an Ambassador program—there are only so many people you can reach on your own and having more community members out there speaking on the behalf of ONOS expands our reach dramatically. ONOS doesn’t have an Ambassadors program today, but we could build one based on the success of the Huawei India ONOS Team.
I think we could start putting a program together by taking the following steps:
If you have any thoughts, comments or suggestions about how Ambassador programs can help open source communities or how we could put together an Ambassadors program for ONOS, please feel free to add comments to this post or join the discussion on the onos-discuss mailing list. The thoughts here are initial ideas about what we could do and it would be great to get help developing this into a more full plan.
