Date   
New ONES NA Dates Confirmed for the Fall

Brandon Wick
 

LFN Communities:

We are pleased to announce that the new dates for Open Networking & Edge Summit North America 2020 are September 28 & 29. The event will continue to be held at the JW Marriott LA Live in Los Angeles, CA.  
 
We are hopeful that the measures being taken around the globe to slow the Coronavirus will allow us to continue with hosting this event in person in September as planned. If however, that is determined to not be a safe or viable option, we will host the event virtually on the same dates. This decision will be made by August 1, 2020. Until then, we are proceeding with plans for the face-to-face event, and will be announcing the schedule next week.
 
These dates were the only option we were able to find and unfortunately overlap the scheduled dates for Open Networking Summit Europe 2020. Due to this, we are postponing ONES Europe, and will determine new dates in Q4 shortly.
 
We thank you for your patience and understanding while we secured new dates for this conference. Our sincere sympathies are with all those being affected by the Covid-19 outbreak and we wish for good health and safety for all.  
 
Thank you again for your support and we hope to see you in Los Angeles. Please let us know if you have any questions.

Best, 

Brandon Wick

NOTICE: ONES North America POSTPONED

Heather Kirksey
 

LFN Community Projects and Working Groups,

Each year, we look forward to gathering at Open Networking & Edge Summit to share information, collaborate, and learn together. Due to continual assessments and growing concerns around COVID-19, we have made the decision to postpone Open Networking & Edge Summit North America (originally planned to take place April 20 - 21, 2020) to this fall (August/September/October timeframe).  We expect that by mid-summer there will be more clarity on the effectiveness of control measures to enable safe travel to industry events like this one. We are finalizing the new dates and details, and will announce them as soon as possible.


We will notify attendees and sponsors later today. 


We will also be sending out speaker notifications to all those that submitted through the CFP. Those talks that are to be accepted will be used for the event later in the year, and we will plan to announce the schedule in the coming months once event dates are finalized and we start to plan for the new event dates.


As you know several communities (CNTT, ODL, ONAP, OPNFV, TF)  had also planned two day technical meetings co-located with ONES. We would like to explore the possibility of doing a virtual technical meeting, if there is community interest in doing so. In order to facilitate this conversation, we would like to invite members from the affected projects to an open discussion at the TAC meeting on March 11, 2020. 

 

We thank you for your patience and understanding while we work through this very fluid situation. A great deal of work and preparation has gone into the information and content planned to be delivered at ONES and we look forward to sharing it all with our community later this year. 


Thank you again for your support. Our sincere sympathies are with all those being affected and we wish for good health and safety for all.


Best,

Heather

Call for Mentors and Projects for 2020 LF Networking Mentorship Program

Casey Cain
 

Today, we’re excited to open the call for mentors and project proposals for the 2020 LF Networking Mentorship Program. This is the first year we're bringing all community intern/mentor projects under the LF Networking umbrella to launch with an integrated program schedule and program operations/management. The Program is intended to provide a formal structure to connect mentors and student developers from around the globe to contribute their enthusiasm, time, and experience toward building sustainable LFN communities.

 Why should you consider mentoring for LF Networking Mentorship Program?
  • You believe in the value of mentorship in helping new developers to navigate open source development, the culture, the tooling and infrastructure to be a productive member of the community.  
  • You are passionate about teaching and guiding student developers, many of whom may be first time open-source contributors, 
  • You are eager to bring in new perspectives, new ideas, and new talent into your community and projects.
  • You have a narrowly scoped mentorship project with clear learning objectives/outcomes and a mentee's work and potential contributions could add value to the project or community of which you're an active developer or maintainer.     
 I am interested in mentoring but how do I get started? 
What are the elements the LFN Mentorship Program will implement to maximize mentor/mentee collaboration success?
  • Mentor and mentee onboarding will be conducted at the start of the Program
  • Mentor and mentee guide will be available as part of the Linux Foundation CommunityBridge Mentorship initiative
  • Project planning that includes deliverables, milestones, and tasks will be completed collaboratively between the mentors and mentees during the first two weeks of the program and posted on the wiki to increase transparency and accountability.
  • Mentee presentations will be required to sharpen both presentation skills and to cultivate the ability to provide constructive feedback and critique that’s the norm in the open source community for developing technologies collaboratively and openly.
  • Mentee evaluation will be conducted on a regular cadence tied to milestone deliverable schedules to help mentors and LFN staff formalize and respond to progress.
While mentors will be on a voluntary basis, the hired mentees will be eligible to receive a stipend. As an added bonus, each mentee who successfully completes the Program will be invited and financially sponsored by LF Networking to attend an event/conference and present their work to the broader community (specific event TBD but will be during Q3 or Q4 of this year or Q1 of the following year).

If you have any questions, please contact mentorship@...

We look forward to your submission of a mentorship project and thank you in advance for volunteering your time to contribute to the training of the new talent pool in the LF Networking communities.

Best,
Casey Cain
Technical Program Manager / Community Architect

This is one of the largest publicly announced TF deployment.

Add your ideas for the LFN Unconference at ONS EU!

VM (Vicky) Brasseur
 

LFN is hosting an unconference at ONS EU in Antwerp in a few weeks. So far there are no Tungsten Fabric related topics proposed, and that's sad-making.

 

If you're going to be at ONS EU, leading an unconference session is a great way to share TF with a larger audience and help the community. It doesn't take much effort to do and can have a huge impact.

 

Have any ideas for TF sessions? Maybe you want to walk through a piece of code, discuss the transition to DPDK, talk about performance metrics, or have a panel on service chaining. There are tons of potential topics, but so far none of them are on the wiki page for the unconference:

 

https://wiki.lfnetworking.org/display/LN/2019+ONS+EU+September+Unconference+Topic+Proposals

 

You can sign into that wiki using your existing LF ID, so add your TF-related unconference sessions today!

If you haven't started working on your KubeCon talk proposal yet then now's the time. Last chance! This CFP closes in TWO DAYS.

 

Not only do presenters get free registration to the entire conference, but I've also found that Linux Foundation is very helpful with financial support for travel. So if money has been a blocker for you, set that aside and make that proposal!

Act now before the last minute!

 

Also, if you'd like another set of eyes on your proposal before you submit it, drop by #events on Slack or email marketing@... and the community's resident wordsmiths will lend a hand.
