ONOS Build 2016 Summary

November 9, 2016

Thank you to everyone who participated in ONOS Build last week. The event was a success because we had such an energized group of around 200 community members. For anyone who wasn’t able to make it or for attendees looking for more information, we wanted to share a summary of what happened and point you to all of the available material from the event.


During the day on Wednesday, brigade teams met up to socialize and make plans for the work they are doing together. Wednesday ended with a welcome reception that was held in a beautiful space that overlooked downtown Paris—everyone had a nice time meeting new people, enjoying the food and admiring the view.


Thursday kicked off with keynote talks with Elio Salvadori from Create-Net and Bill Snow providing some of the history of ONOS and Thomas Vachuska giving details of the ONOS roadmap to provide a look at the future of the community. After that, the audience had a chance to ask the ONOS Technical Steering Team questions about the roadmap and other topics—that opportunity to interact seems to have been very useful and we ran out of time before we could get to everyone who had a question.


After the keynote and panels, most of the rest of the event on both Thursday and Friday was driven by the community. People did demos of their projects during Science Fairs, there was a Community Showcase track where people presented information about their work and many community members were active in the hackathon. In addition, the core development team gave talks to people interested in learning more about how ONOS works in the ONOS Basics Track.


The event ended with a showcase from the different brigade and hackathon teams and all attendees voted to award prizes to the hackathon teams. Congratulations to Team LISP SBI for winning first prize, Team Schnappi! for winning second and Team Roll the Control for coming in third.


A big thank you once again to our friends at the UPMC/LIP6 for their amazing on-the-ground support throughout the planning of ONOS Build, to everyone who took part in the talks, panels and Science Fairs, and last but not least, to all our sponsors (Ciena, Fujitsu, Huawei, KISTI, Radisys, Adara Networks and Gandi) whose support was crucial in making the event a great success.


ONOS Build 2016 was our first large scale ONOS developer gathering and we look forward to building on the lessons of this first experience as we prepare the next edition of the event, which we plan to host in Asia in 2017.

Below we’ve gathered as much of the material from the event that we could and we’ll update this post with new material as it comes in. Please have a look through all of the amazing content people put together for the event.
