All proposed topics have been assigned a time in the master agenda. If you add a topic to the list below, please also schedule it by adding it to the schedule. 

Plugfest planners are requesting more of a focus on developer engagement and less on content presentation. Consequently, proposals that are development oriented are more likely to be selected for the Prague OPNFV Plugfest. We are expecting to select between 4 and 5 plugfest topics / tracks.  These tracks will run throughout the week, with the goal to deliver the outcome described in the proposed.  The event will wrap up, with each track providing a 10 minute update the event closing plenary on Thursday.

For Plugfest challenges, state the hacking challenge and include the technologies of interest so that developers can self-identify if they have the skills for the challenge.

CI/CD Evolution

  • Short Description:  Collect requirements, discuss, and hopefully reach a consensus (to propose to the TSC) on which CI system OPNFV might (or not) transition to.

  • Detailed Description: The CI/CD landscape has change dramatically over the last few years and opened the door to new services that are easier to understand, quicker to setup, and provide greater insight into project CI/CD. The OPNFV community has taken some time to investigate these new tools and determine if our requirements (e.g. Connecting hardware) for CI can be met (or not) by them. We should discuss these finding and weight the cost of transitioning (time, effort, etc) vs. the benefits of staying where we're at. The goal of this track is to reach a consensus, coupled with a document explaining how that consensus was reached (research findings, costs, etc.), to present to the OPNFV TSC for approval. If the consensus is to move, then additionally a draft migration plan should be created to outline the decencies required in moving.

OVP VNF Hacking Track

  • Short Description:  Provide a collaborative and safe environment for VNF vendors to try out ONAP/OPNFV interop via OVP and other tooling.  VNF participants completing full passing runs will be able to submit the results to the OVP portal, to have their product listed with the VNF badge. 

  • Detailed Description: Hands-on testing topics include the following. Get more information here.
    • Compliance testing (via OVP tooling)
    • Validation testing (via OVP beta tooling)
    • Additional LCM testing (ad-hoc tooling/GUI)
    • Additional monitoring testing (ad-hoc tooling/GUI)

As part of this track, labs are being organized to host existing instances of the ONAP El Alto release (first release with validation tests cases included) to support the testing efforts.  We will have experts and test developers participating in the track, to assist with debugging issues and to answer questions about the requirements or test results.  If time permits and resources are available, VNF participants will be able to try out more advanced cases on the ONAP infrastructure, such as VNF configuration, scale-out / scale-in, etc.  

Note: even though the session is optimized for VNF vendors, PNF/CNF vendors are welcome

3 Comments

  1. The purpose of "Cross-Open Source Roadmap" was not to have a dedicated joint meeting with the CNTT/OPNFV only.

    The purpose is to collect potential requirements from all the open source communities i.e. Acumos, ODL, O-Ran, OVP etc not only CNTT and OPNFV.

    For the CNTT/ONAP/OPNFV joint session, please create a separated entry and topic leaders should be CNTT TSC Chair and myself.

    Thanks for considering my request

  2. Catherine Lefevre Acumos, ODL, O-RAN are not attending AFAIK. CNTT is a taskforce NOT a project - so there is no TSC chair to speak of... What I propose is a ALL-HANDs session where ALL of the participants in the Prague event can combine and discuss their respective roadmaps. Perhaps we can ask  Gergely Csatari  to represent the CNCF/TUG roadmap as well? Many people are involved in more than one project so we may pick up insights to other open source initiatives... Does this seem like a reasonable approach?

    1. I like the approach - thanks for your consideration
