You can now add San Diego to the list of OpenFlow tutorial sites, which includes Stanford, Brazil, and Seattle.
The latest one was held at the 8th GENI Engineering Conference, right by the beach. The weather was cool and cloudy, but the turnout was great: 58 registered and the room was filled with a mix of students, commercial researchers, and others looking to learn. The material alternated between lectures and hands-on exercises, where attendees turned a provided NOX hub controller into a flow-accelerated learning switch. The lecture side was given by Brandon Heller from Stanford and Srini Seetharaman from Deutsche Telekom Labs, while the hands-on side was helped by almost ten Stanford students/affiliates, ensuring that questions were answered promptly. Slides, exercises, and more are available at the links below:
