About the devroom
The FOSDEM Network devroom hosts a diversity of talks covering open source
networking projects and technologies. The scope of the Network devroom is
broad and targets those software developers engaged in network design,
monitoring, management and software development with open source tools.
We typically host a variety of talks on Networking topics including:
- Network monitoring (inventory, discovery & telemetry),
- Network management (enterprise, carrier-grade, cloud, IoT)
- Networking protocols (the full alphabet soup)
- Security (IPS, IDS, protocols)
- Development tools (libraries, SDKs, plugins)
- Network stacks
If it moves network packets, monitors, or interacts with, or supervises
entities that moves network packets, it is likely a topic the devroom is
interested in. A very /non-exhaustive/ list of the projects and topics we
would love to see on the schedule are:
Monitoring Nagios, Icinga2, Naemon, NTop, SNAS, Graphana, Prometheus, collectd
Frameworks DPDK, eBPF, XDP, FD.io, PANDA
Switching Snabb, OpenvSwitch, Tungsten Fabric, Lagopus, FastClick
Stacks Linux, *BSD, F-Stack
Controllers Istio, Envoy, Network Service Mesh, OpenDayLight, Calico, Contiv
Edge Akraino, Openness
Routing FRRouting, BIRD, Go-BGP
Management ONAP, Ganglia, NetSNMP, PNDA.io
Security Suricata, Snort
Tooling VSPerf, TRex, Moongen, Scapy, Warp17
Talks should be aimed at a technical audience, but should not assume that
attendees are already familiar with your project or how it solves a given
problem. Talk proposals may cover very specific solutions to a problem, or may
be a higher level project overview for lesser known projects.
