Open Source Networking User Groups (OSN User Groups) are locally managed groups that are passionate about network transformation through open source. Groups meet periodically to discuss practical applications and the latest innovations from the LF Networking projects: FD.io, ONAP, OpenDaylight, OPNFV, and others. These groups provide an opportunity to meet face to face with other open networking enthusiasts in the region, share ideas and insights, and work collaboratively to overcome the challenges of Software Defined Networking (SDN), Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), Management and Orchestration (MANO), cloud, data analytics, and the acceleration of underlying infrastructures.
User Groups do not have a formal relationship with the Linux Foundation, but make up a key part of the open source networking ecosystem. Participation in a User Group is open to anyone: employees of a member company, project contributors, upstream developers, and people just passionate about network transformation.
Before starting a new group, check meetup.com to see if there is an existing user group in your region that you could join. If one does not already exist and you are interested in starting one, please contact us to discuss the process: email@example.com.
