The place for hands-on collaboration and development of OpenCS and OpenLSO implementations!
The LSO Hackathon is a multi-event project facilitated by MEF that enables Open Source community developers, networking experts and technology vendors to collaborate and develop solutions based on MEF work - both published and still in development. LSO Hackathons are part of MEF's agile process for standards development, and accelerate the implementation of agile, assured and orchestrated services as described in the MEF's Third Network Vision
MEF is holding an LSO Hackathon co-located with MEF17 to accelerate the development of LSO-SDN-NFV based solutions for Third Network services. The MEF17 LSO Hackathon will facilitate discussion, collaboration and the development of ideas, sample code, and solutions that can be used both in the Open Source projects (e.g. OpenDaylight, ON.Lab, PNDA) and in the further development of MEF specifications for the benefit of service providers and technology vendors alike.
It is free to participate although space is limited to 80 hackathoners. Register for your place now, and our LSO Hackathon leadership will confirm your participation after reviewing your details.
What are the goals?
- Accelerate the pace and relevance of MEF LSO open APIs and standards
- Strengthen collaboration across SDOs and the Open Source communities
- Create more running code for contribution to the Open Source communities and to support reference implementations in MEF OpenCS and OpenLSO projects
What is the format?
Collaborative with an emphasis on creating reference implementations of various portions of MEF’s LSO architecture and making open source projects, such as OpenDaylight, OpenStack, PDNA, and others, better suited to play significant roles within this architecture. The goals are shared and the hackathon is open to everyone - MEF members and non-MEF members. Most importantly, its fun and a great learning experience!
What is the scope?
This will be finalized just 2 weeks before the event but will include work on Service Orchestration, Software Defined Networking, Big Data Analytics of Network Data, and more.
Who is the ideal hackathoner?
The recommended background for LSO Hackathoners – one or more of the following:
- Open Source project contributors
- Software developers from service providers and technology vendors
- Network engineers, architects, designers etc. from service providers
