First international OpenFlow tutorial and demo session, in Brazil

May 29th, 2010, brandonh in OpenFlow Blog

The first international OpenFlow tutorial was held on 5/27 in Gramado, a small mountain town in southern Brazil.  The full-day tutorial, along with a talk on Software-Defined Networking and demo session the next day, were part of SBRC 2010, Brazil’s largest conference for networking researchers (~800 were in attendance).

All events went swimmingly, with about 40 attendees.  The tutorial alternated between hands-on exercises and lecture, with topics such as OpenFlow motivation, history, interface, demos, availability, deployments, and community.  In the hands-on portion, each participant worked to learn the OpenFlow toolset and turn the provided hub controller into a flow-based switch. Fortunately, the 6499 miles and 200+ms RTT between Stanford and Gramado affected only one demo out of 6; most worked without a hitch.

The tutorial slide deck is available.
