The next iteration of MEF's LSO Hackathon series is happening next week in Frankfurt, Germany. The Euro17 Hackathon, like previous MEF LSO hackathons, is an accelerator for various OpenLSO and OpenLSO projects aimed at creating reference implementations of the LSO architecture and APIs being standardized by MEF. Participation in the hackathon is free and open to everyone, not just MEF members. The spirit is very collaborative with emphasis on getting people from different companies, open source projects, and standards efforts working together toward the following set of shared goals.
Acceleration of pace and relevance of MEF LSO APIs and standards
Validation of evolving APIs/standards
Feedback into technical committees
Create SDN controller plugins, interface with LSO orchestration solutions
Collaboration across SDOs and Open Source communities
Increased awareness, open discussions
Support for LSO APIs in relevant open source projects
