SDN: how Open Source Software is fundamentally changing computer networking

Note: WE ARE MEETING AT BLOOMBERG!! We'll need names, and you will need IDs. RSVP will open Aug 6, 2014, Wednesday 4:30pm.

I'm sure you've heard by now, that Software Defined Networking (SDN) is a new approach to networking that brings the power and flexibility of software to networking.

So what does that mean? Why does it matter? Why should you care about it?

While there are many definitions of SDN,  Senad will review the original goals of SDN, explain how we got to where we are today, and point to where we are going tomorrow. This includes SDN's current and future impact on IT shops, sysadmins, developers and the devops community.

In addition, Senad will cover how Open Source Software is making this all possible, and will share his knowledge and thoughts on the various Open Source SDN projects, and how to get involved in these Open Source projects.

Although, deep networking knowledge is not required, some understanding of Ethernet, VLANs, TCP/IP is beneficial to gain full understanding of the material.

Afterwards:

Join us afterwards at Bloom's Tavern where we'll continue the discussion over drinks and/or food. Bloom's Tavern is located at 208 E 58th St, between 2nd at 3rd.

    Interesting discussion. Walked into the conference with just the basics of networking. Definitely got something out of that discussion. Thanks NYLUG. Looking forward to the regular meet up.

    Started 20 mins late. Maybe it was just me, but I didn't think it was a very good presentation & explanation of SDN...sorry, just my opinion.

      I had train problems but I wanted to really thank you all for the great references. MiniNet is exactly what I was hoping to find - a network in a box for experimenting.

      As a systems & network engineer, I applaud our speaker for providing the foundation he did during part one of the talk ("networking 101".) This was bridge building, and network protocol stacks don't make for light conversation.

      As an advanced topic of discussion, I think additional SDN research would shed more light, especially when we get the slides.

      Personally, I got a lot out of this talk, and feel that the speaker did a very good job.
      Bravo, Mr. Palislamovic.

    I'm just a newbie in this field. Perhaps most people in this group are pros. Thus, it doesn't hurt to ask question: I installed java on linux opensuse 13.1 and run a small program on it, but it failed. The message was that java could not find the main class. I could not figure the problem. Please could someone help me to address this problem.

      This is the type of things we try to help with at the workshops, haven't set a date for the September one yet (but soon!). I set up my java environment by hacking/googling errors. In the mean time , you can try the OpenSUSE Java irc channel here : http://en.opensuse.or...­ . However, please read the following guidelines on asking questions : http://www.catb.org/~...­

      This may seem like a lot of reading to get the answer to a seemingly simple problem, however, copious amounts of reading now will save you from a lot more pain later!

    I enjoyed the presentation. I had to leave early, so unfortunately I missed the last part of the presentation.

    FYI, the zip code on the map link is wrong, so it shows the wrong location, 84th st. The correct zip is 10022, with address as listed above, @58/59. https://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=731+Lexington+Ave,+New+York,+NY,+10022,+us

      The proper thing to do would be to bother Google about it.

      It seems to be a weird meetup.com bug. I just put in the address for next month's talk and it kept coming back with randomly wrong lat/longs. That said it does us edit/fix it, so I'll keep an eye for the next couple of months.

    The "Bar Track" will continue upstairs at Bloom's Tavern, a half block away at 208 E 58th St, between 2nd and 3rd Ave.

    In case you are arriving late: the Meetup is in a different room, 28W. Take the first elevator to 6, and take the west elevator bank to 29. At 29 follow the signs to 28W.

      Changing topology and new routes, this is why we need SDN!
