A Practitioner’s Guide to Open Source Software - Usage, Contribution, Leadership - Phil Robb, Linux Foundation
Open source software has taken the Networking and Service Provider industries by storm. As a result, many individuals and organizations have had their working environments severely disrupted. Those who used to write software strictly as a part of a corporate product team must now deal with many “external developers” that are part of an open source community. Those who used to produce vendor RFPs to procure products now find themselves needing to deal with the cacophony of voices in various open source projects to piece together a coherent technology strategy.

In this talk we’ll explain the best practices for dealing with this new world order from how to evaluate open source projects to engaging with them, and how to influence them. We’ll also talk about emerging trends in these open source communities and the likely issues and opportunities that will result.

Upstream Open Source Networking Development: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly - Kyle Mestery, IBM; Russell Bryant, Red Hat; Justin Pettit, VMware
Open Source Networking reached critical mass in 2015, with an onslaught of new projects combining with many existing projects to create a vibrant ecosystem. Working upstream in many of these projects can require skills which are unique. Each project can do things a little differently. How can you help your people succeed as they navigate their way through the many different communities they encounter in Open Source networking?

In this talk, we will cover how to effectively work across many upstream Open Source networking projects. We'll compare how these projects take on new work, how they consume this new work, and ultimately how they fold it into their projects. We will take you on a light hearted ride through strategies which work and strategies which are guaranteed to fail. And we'll show you how to be effective in joining an Open Source networking community.

How OPNFV is Accelerating Open Source NFV For and With End Users - Heather Kirksey, OPNFV
Open Platform for NFV, a carrier-grade, integrated, open source platform to accelerate the introduction of new NFV products and services, is uniquely positioned to bring together the work of standards bodies, open source communities and commercial suppliers to deliver a de facto standard open source NFV platform for the industry. Uniquely, OPNFV has had several leading global network operators, such as AT&T, Orange, and Docomo involved from the beginning to ensure it was positioned to meet their most pressing demands for NFV. What's more, these operators and others are now actively participating in the technical community and even leading several OPNFV projects through the recent Brahmaputra release and beyond. Join OPNFV Director, Heather Kirksey, to learn about the unique benefits and challenges of creating an open source platform with end users.

Driving Standards from Code - ECI's Work with ONOS - Hayim Porat, ECI Telecom
ECI Telecom had traditionally developed proprietary code based on telecom industry standards. With SDN (and NFV) ECI made a strategic decision to move to open source. The first platform was chosen to be the SDN controller. After testing and evaluating several options ECI had decided to go with ONOS. Moreover, ECI had decided to take the approach of "code is king" by promoting innovation into industry standards (in this case Openflow) first contributing code to the community, let the community asses its value and only then, try to take it to the SDOs.

In this presentation we will present the process ECI went through in adopting open-source and will discuss the work we have done in augmenting OF with optical capabilities as well as our suggestions for a much more agile packet based OF and its impact on the controller architecture.
