MEF Forum is holding the Euro16 LSO Hackathon in Rome, April 27-29. The hackathon is colocated with MEF’s Quarterly Member’s Meeting. The goal of this hackathon, and with the MEF’s LSO Hackathon series, is to be a catalyst for the creation of one or more reference implementations of the Lifecycle Services Orchestration (LSO) architecture. This not only validates the architecture in parallel with standardizing the APIs it defines, but also ensures these APIs are compatible with and supported by open source projects, such as OpenDaylight, OpenStack, and OPNFV, that play a role in the architecture. As such, a primary objective is pulling together active contributors of relevant standards organizations and open source communities to improve communication and collaboration.
You do not need to be a member of MEF to participate in the hackathon, and while attending the quarterly meeting is encouraged, it is not required. Participation in the Euro 16 LSO Hackathon is free of charge.
Cisco DevNet is a working closely with MEF and others to make this event a success.
To participate in the Euro16 LSO Hackathon as a networking expert, an operations expert or as a software developer, please register here (separate registration from the Quarterly Meeting) and we will get back to you with more information.
This is an excellent opportunity to access expertise to complement your own in the rapidly evolving areas of software defined networking, cloud computing, and the core work of the MEF in the LSO Reference Architecture.
