[UPDATE #5] Participating at ONOS Build 2017

ONOS Build 2017 is a developer conference by the community for the community. As such, we want to make this event as open and participatory as possible and your participation is key to its success. Below is a reminder of the different ways you can sign-up to be a speaker or presenter:

Community Showcase

What is it?

The Community Showcase is a series of talks, presentations and demos by partners, collaborators and contributors of the ONOS Community. On day 1 and 2, the focus is on ONOS and on day 3, the focus is on CORD as an ONOS Use Case

What is the goal of the showcase?

The aim is to provide a platform for members of the ONOS community to share and learn from each other.

How will the talks be run?

Each talk will be between 20 + 5 min of Q&A. Talks will be in the form of slide presentations.

Who can participate ?

The showcase is open to everyone. Registered participants who have submitted a talk proposal and who have been confirmed as speaker will appear on the schedule.

To submit a talk proposal, simply fill out one of the following forms:

ONOS Showcase: http://onosbuild.org/onos-community-showcase/

CORD Showcase: http://onosbuild.org/cord-community-showcase/

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: Tuesday August 1st, 2017

SDN Science Fair

Do you need help with an awesome SDN project you’re working on? Do you have a phenomenal demo you want to show off ? Are you working on an experiment or idea that needs feedback or testers? At ONOS Build 2017, you’ll have your chance to show off what you’re working on and get feedback from SDN experts from all over the world during our lunch-time SDN Science Fair.

Exhibitors at the fair will be able to set up their laptops and demos at small booths while everyone else can wander around the space, stopping to chat, watch demos, ask questions, and generally just dive in, talk about stuff, and vote on their favorite project.

If you would like to present demos/posters during the SDN Science Fair, please fill out this simple form: http://onosbuild.org/sdn-science-fair/

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: Friday September 1st, 2017

ONOS Hackathon

What is the ONOS Hackathon?

The ONOS Hackathon at ONOS Build 2017 will be an event that will take place during the last two days of the conference where participants will develop a new feature into ONOS. The new feature could be as simple as a new small application on ONOS or a new subsystem within ONOS.

What is the goal of the hackathon?

The idea is to encourage developers to build new applications or new features into ONOS and continue collaborating with them long after the event. 

How will the hackathon be run?

Each team will be composed of at least two people and up to a maximum of four people. Each team will be led by a Team Captain and will come with an idea of what to build for ONOS. We will also propose some ideas for those teams that lack some inspiration ;). Teams will build their feature over the duration of the event and then teams will be expected to present their work to the conference during the closing session. All participants of the conference will vote for the best projects.

Who can participate (ie. what basic technical expertise do you need)?

Anyone can participate. Of course, if you are interested in networking technology and can write code, that’s even better but the hackathon is definitely not limited to coders. It is up to the Team Captain to select and build his/her team, so if the Team Captain decides that he needs a circus juggler or salsa dancer on his team to get the work done and win the top prize, then that’s totally fine!

What is a Team Captain?

Each team is led by a Team Captain who is responsible for forming his/her team and overseeing his/her team’s project from the beginning of the Hackathon until the very end. The Team Captain is also responsible for reaching unanimous agreement with his/her team on how to share their prize should his/her team win a prize.

What is the maximum number of participants per team?

Each team should be composed at least 2 people and up to 4 people. 

What are the prizes ?

They will be announced soon….

How can I register for the hackathon?

Please fill out the followig form: http://onosbuild.org/onos-hackathon/

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: Friday September 1st, 2017

Call for Participation

As we mentioned in our previous ONOS Build 2017 update, the event’s success is entirely dependent on the community’s participation. There are three ways you can participate as a speaker or presenter:

  • Community Showcase

The Community Showcase is a series of talks, presentations and demos by partners, collaborators and contributors of the ONOS Community. On day 1 and 2, the focus is on ONOS and on day 3, the focus is on CORD as an ONOS Use Case

  • SDN Science Fair

If there is an awesome SDN project you’re working on or if you are working on an experiment or idea that needs feedback or testers, you’ll have your chance to show off what you’re working on and get feedback from SDN experts from all over the world during ONOS Build’s SDN Science Fair.

Exhibitors at the fair will be able to either set up their laptops and demos at small booths or hand a poster during lunch time, while everyone else can wander around the space, stopping to chat, watch demos, ask questions. Prizes will be awarded to the best projects, as voted by conference attendees.

  • Hackathon

The ONOS Hackathon will be an event spanning the length of the conference where participants will develop a new feature for ONOS. The new feature could be as simple as a new small application on ONOS or a new subsystem within ONOS. Best of all, some really cool prizes will be on offer for the top three teams, voted by conference attendees.

Submit a proposal today

If you’re interested in giving a talk at the “Community Showcase”, in presenting an inspiring SDN-related project at the “SDN Science Fair” or in participating in the “ONOS Hackathon” to win a cool prize, make sure to visit website’s participation page to submit a proposal: http://onosbuild.org/cfp/

Help sponsor the event!

Another very important way you can participate in ONOS Build 2017 is as a sponsor. We welcome all organizations who are interested in supporting us as we aim to offer a first class event for our community, while at the same time providing travel subsidies to ONOS contributors around the world who would not be able to attend the event otherwise.

If your organization is interested in becoming an official sponsor, please visit the sponsor page here: http://onosbuild.org/sponsors/

And as always, if you have any questions, make sure to contact the ONOS Build event team at onos-build [at] onlab [dot] us or directly on our Slack channel.

ONOS Build 2017 – Update #1 : Venue and Location

As we mentioned during the last Community Steering Team call, we’re kicking off a series of blog posts these coming weeks/months that will provide regular updates on the advancement of the design, planning and execution of ONOS Build 2017. Importantly, everyone is encouraged to react to each blog post by sharing feedback directly on the community mailing list. Whether you have a concern you’d like to raise, or an idea you’d like to float, we’re all ears and we want to make sure ONOS Build reflects the needs and aspirations of the community.

For this first update, we’d like to share some information about the venue and location of the event, and specifically who will be partnering with on the ground.

Last year, ONOS Build took place in Paris and we chose to hold in Europe as a way to engage with and recognise the great work European contributors are doing. For those who attended,  you’ll remember that we had collaborated with the University of Pierre and Marie Curie and the LIP6 research lab, who offered to host the event at their renovated campus, right in the heart of Paris, and provided much needed logistical support.

For ONOS Build 2017, we’re continuing our push eastward and the focus is now on Asia. We’ve been seeing a lot of great work on ONOS coming out of Asia and we hope the event will not only shed light on all the amazing work that contributors in the region have been doing but also consolidate current efforts and catalyse new ones.

In keeping with the tradition of being hosted by a local ONOS supporter, this year, we’ll be collaborating with Samsung Electronics , who have kindly offered to host us in their Seoul R&D Campus in Korea. This state-of-the-art campus is located south of Seoul, just outside of the city and participants will be able to commute to and from the venue using Samsung’s free shuttle service. Samsung has been a very important partner for us both for ONOS and CORD ever since they joined the board of ON.Lab last summer. Their offer to support us in hosting our largest ONOS community event is testimony to their strong commitment to helping us grow the community and take the ONOS project to new heights.

Although a large proportion of participants at ONOS Build 2017 will be coming from Asian countries, the event is open to everyone and we will be welcoming participants from all over the world. We understand that for those living outside of Asia, travel might be a little longer and more tiring that you’re used to, but you can count on us to make the trip to Seoul worthwhile.

Which brings us to the topic for the next post in this blog series: Participating in ONOS Build 2017. Our next update will provide information on how you can get involved before and at the event, when you should plan to arrive and leave Seoul, what type of travel subsidies we’ll be providing and how to obtain a visa if you need one .

Stay tuned!
