The OpenDaylight Summit is next week. While I don’t have insight in to content that’s going to be presented — I am confident that the keynote speeches won’t be product placements. That alone is reason enough for me to attend. Plus, I hear rumors that Brent Salisbury will unveil his new cocktail based on Kentucky’s finest’s and lemon aid, simply called ‘The ODP.’ Again – another great reason to attend.
All joking aside, for those of you who can’t make the live event, SDNCentral has access to the live stream for all of this year’s keynote speakers. This event is bringing industry leaders together to discuss SDN, NFV and address some of networking’s toughest challenges. Can’t be there in person? Register below and we’ll notify you when the live stream is available. Even better, you’ll get to watch on SDNCentral from the comfort of your desk or living room! (popcorn not included)
