Come and find out what all the hype is about. Our presenter is none other that Georgia Tech's own Dr. Nick Feamster who received his PhD in Computer Science from MIT in 2005, and his BS and MEng degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT in 2000 and 2001, respectively.  There is also the free SDN course that he is providing along with Coursera.


So if you have not started learning SDN yet, this is you chance to jump start your knowledge from an expert in the field. Don't get left out, there will be many ideas, industried, companies and jobs in the SDN  eco system.
