What to Expect

What is OpenDev?

OpenDev events bring together the developers and users of the open source software powering today's infrastructure, to share best practices, identify gaps, and advance the state of the art in open infrastructure. OpenDev events focused on Edge Computing in 2017 and CI/CD in 2018. In 2020, OpenDev is a virtual series of three separate events, each covering a different open infrastructure topic. Participants can expect discussion oriented, collaborative sessions exploring challenges, sharing common architectures, and collaborating around potential solutions.

Event #1: Large Scale Usage of Open Infrastructure

June 29 - July 1, 2020

Operating open infrastructure at scale presents common challenges and constraints. During this event, users will share case studies and architectures, discuss problem areas impacting their environments, and collaborate around open source requirements directly with upstream developers.

Topics include:

  • Scaling user stories with the goal of pushing back cluster scaling limits
  • Upgrades
  • Centralized compute vs distributed compute for NFV and edge computing use case
  • User Stories - challenges based on size of the deployment

Event #2: Hardware Automation topics

July 20 - 22, 2020

From hardware acceleration to running applications directly on bare metal, hardware automation enables organizations to save resources and increase productivity. During this OpenDev event, operators will discuss hardware limitations for cloud provisioning, share networking challenges, and collaborate on open source requirements directly with upstream developers.

Topics include:

  • End-to-end hardware provisioning lifecycle for bare metal / cradle to grave for hypervisors
  • Networking
  • Consuming bare metal infrastructure to provision cloud based workloads

Event #3: Containers in Production topics

August 10 - 11, 2020

Whether you want to run containerized applications on bare metal or VMs, organizations are developing architectures for a variety of workloads. During this event, users will discuss the infrastructure requirements to support containers, share challenges from their production environments, and collaborate on open source requirements directly with upstream developers.

Topics include:

  • Using OpenStack and containers together
  • Security and Isolation
  • Telco and Network Functions

Next Steps/Outcomes

The collaboration does not stop when OpenDev ends. After the event, participants are encouraged to join the SIG related to the topic to continue the discussions. Successful SIGs would continue to meet, produce relevant content, and incorporate discussion outcomes into upstream software development.

Who Attends OpenDev

The OpenDev 2020 event series focuses on user stories and challenges around scaling, hardware automation, and containers using open source software. During the event, operators will collaborate on requirements with the developers contributing upstream and the vendors creating product roadmaps.
