9:00-9:45 Registration, Coffee
9:45-11:45 Opening Keynotes
11:45-12:45 Lunch
12:45-2:00 Breakout Sessions Thin Control Plane: 0-20 total server footprint Networking: Handling network segmentation and unreliable/periodic connectivity Security in infrastructure software (code/design)
2:00-2:30 Break
2:30-3:45 Breakout Sessions Thin Control Plane: Minimizing the footprint required to place workloads on devices at the edge (including minimizing the network traffic required to implement) Networking: Survey of the networking tech landscape: SDN, Neutron, Gluon, OpenContrail, Nuage, ADVA, Security of usage through RBAC at the control interfaces and ownership of the devices/systems
3:45-4:00 Break
4:00-5:15 Breakout Sessions Thin Control Plane: Autonomous workload management locally on the edge (local policy execution, image caching, etc) Networking: Effect of network on the architecture and design, support for transport-neutral distributed system Security in lifecycle operations and deployment including the usage of the underlying tech and implementing network/compute/storage/memory separtion available from the underlying virtualization/hardware components
5:30-7:30 Happy hour @ DogPatch WineWorks

Advance the future of EDGE computing

OpenDev is a two-day event designed to facilitate collaboration at a technical level with productive, working group discussions, in addition to lightning talk presentations on Edge use cases and demos from proofs of concepts. Topics will span verticals including telecom, retail, industrial enterprise, utilities and logistics / supply chain.

Targeted outcome includes:

Education of what differentiates an edge application and how to categorize them

Documentation around the recommended technology stack and architecture for edge

Gap analysis across OpenStack and other technologies needed for edge
