As we mentioned during the last Community Steering Team call, we’re kicking off a series of blog posts these coming weeks/months that will provide regular updates on the advancement of the design, planning and execution of CORD Build 2017. Importantly, everyone is encouraged to react to each blog post by sharing feedback directly on the community mailing list. Whether you have a concern you’d like to raise, or an idea you’d like to float, we’re all ears and we want to make sure CORD Build reflects the needs and aspirations of the community.
For this first update, we’d like to share some information about the venue and location of the event, and specifically who we will be partnering with on the ground.
Quanta Cloud Technology, an active CORD collaborator, has graciously agreed to host this event at their facility in San Jose, California. Their facility is a perfect fit for this event — there is a large auditorium space, multiple breakout rooms and kiosks to use for Science Fairs where community members can demonstrate what they are working on.
We understand that CORD has a community of contributors from all over the world and that some community members may not be able to make it to this location for the event in November. For people in Asia who can’t attend this event, we encourage you to look at attending ONOS Build 2017 that will be held in Seoul, Korea in September and that will include some CORD content. We are also committed to holding future events in areas that are more accessible to parts of the community that haven’t been well served by previous events — for instance, we held the first ONOS Build last year in Paris and this year have moved that event to Asia.
Which brings us to the topic for the next post in this blog series: Participating in CORD Build 2017. Our next update will provide information on how you can get involved before and at the event and what the plans are for the schedule of the three day event.
