Next week, Tech Field Day travels to New York City to participate in the bi-annual Open Networking User Group (ONUG) Conference. Luminaries from the networking community like Martin Casado, Ken Duda, and Dr. Douglas Comer will be speaking about the latest advances in open networking. Attendees will get a chance to hear about industry changes that will affect the way they do their jobs in future.
We will also be producing our on-site Tech Field Day Extra event. Our select group of delegates from the networking community will get an opporutnity to dive deep into technologies from exciting new companies like Versa Networks and OpenSwitch, as well as hearing updates from great Networking Field Day presenters like CloudGenix and Cisco.
Tech Field Day Extra, as implied by the name, is a way for companies to gain extra engagement from industry event such as ONUG, Interop, and many more. The delegates that take part in Tech Field Day Extra represent some of the best and brightest voices in the community. Their expertise and viewpoints are very valuable perspectives for any company to consider.
Each one-hour Tech Field Day Extra session is recorded and the session videos are posted to the popular Tech Field Day Youtube channel. This helps continue community engagement after the event by increasing the reach of the message after a big annoucement. Tech Field Day Extra can help your company continue to be a community conversation long after your presentation.
ONUG Registration will be open through the event. It starts with ONUG Academy on November 3 before the main ONUG Conference on November 4 and 5.
This event marks our fourth collaboration with ONUG, dating back to 2013. We have been pleased to see the event grow and adapt as “open networking” moves from the lab to the datacenter, and always look forward future events. In addition to sharing video from our own Tech Field Day Extra presentations, we are working with the ONUG organizers to share video of some of their sessions for the first time. We expect that this additional visibility will help grow the event in the future.
We invite the public to stay tuned to our coverage of the ONUG Conference as well as Tech Field Day Extra at ONUG. We will be posting videos next week from our presentations as well as sharing the thoughts and observations of the delegates on our event page. We will also be using the event hashtag of #ONUGFall15 and #TFDX during the week, so please feel free to join in and add your voice to the conversation!
