With its open design, software-defined networking (SDN) is enabling new opportunities in networking and lowering barriers to innovation. More people can develop new applications that shape how the network functions or is secured for end users and businesses. HP is fostering that innovation with SDN Developer Days, seminars that provide developers with skills to build their own applications.
This video shows highlights from a recent session, where more than 30 developers came together to get a jumpstart on building and monetizing SDN applications. Instead of having to hunt down and study information on their own, the SDN innovators received an accelerated course on how to build actual SDN applications that could go to market.
The event is part of HP’s goal to foster a community of SDN developers by giving them the tools to develop applications and a way to monetize them. Together, participants learned about and used the open, HP SDN Developer Kit (SDK) to create, test, and validate their own SDN applications. Finished applications could be sold on the HP SDN App Store, which lets customers browse, purchase, and download SDN apps.
After you watch the video, learn more about how you can apply SDN by watching installments from SDN Journey, a multi-part series that starts with the basics of SDN and moves on to use cases and standards.
