Upcoming OpenFlow Tutorial at HOT-Interconnects 2010

August 12th, 2010, yiannisy in Announcements, OpenFlow Blog

Update : The tutorial was held with great success! Slides are available here. You can go through the tutorial on your own following these instructions.

The next OpenFlow tutorial will take place on August 20 in Mountain View, CA as part of HOT Interconnects Symposium.

This tutorial is an opportunity to gain hands-on experience with the platforms and debugging tools most useful for developing network control applications on OpenFlow. Following an introduction, each participant will create a flow-based Ethernet switch. Along the way, attendees will learn the full suite of OpenFlow debugging tools: view flow tables with dpctl, dissect packets with Wireshark, slice with FlowVisor, simulate a multi-switch, multi-host network with Mininet on their laptops, and control a network with real switches.
The only requirement is to bring a laptop; no experience is required.
