|OCC 202||50||Vendor BoF: Open vSwitch Community Forum|
Open vSwitch (OVS) is an open source project with a growing community. Besides its industrial popularity in OpenStack clouds and other uses, OVS is often used in academic research. Furthermore, the Open vSwitch development community continues to diversify. In 2012 and 2013, about 19% of Open vSwitch commits were from contributors outside of Nicira or VMware (the project founders), in 2014 that grew to 24%, and in 2015 that figure continues to rise. This session will highlight the Open vSwitch community and how researchers and others can participate in it and benefit from it.
Beer, wine, soft drinks, and light snacks will be provided.
