Co-hosted with GSMA, this LFN Developer & Testing Forum brings together developers across ONAP, CNTT, and OPNFV, with a special focus on VNF compliance and verification testing. As the principal event for LFN open source projects, the technical gathering provides a platform for community members to collaborate, plan future releases, conduct a plugfest, and perform interoperability, compliance, and integration testing across the full network stack, including NFVI, MANO, and VNFs.
There will also be ample opportunities for cross-project collaboration around automated testing, CI/CD, Lab-as-a-Service, infrastructure, the OPNFV Verification Program (OVP), documentation, and other ways to increase collaboration and operational excellence across projects. Attendees may attend project meetings, demos, hackfest activities, plugfest activities, as well as sessions specifically designed to encourage cross-community collaboration on subjects of mutual interest (e.g., test, infra).
In addition, participants are encouraged to do “hands on” work, resolving bugs, and conducting interoperability testing, using remote connections to their hardware resources, as part of the Plugfest portion of the event. Participants will be provided with a dedicated space, where they may work, uninterrupted, separate from the main meeting area.
The most common job types are Architects and Developers and other represented groups include Network Operations, Project/Program Manager, Sales & Marketing, Executives, and Students.
