OpenDaylight Bootcamp

Intense, hands-on two day OpenDaylight course.

Course title:

OpenDaylight Bootcamp





The OpenDaylight Bootcamp covers the critical skills needed to deploy an OpenDaylight-based solution. Training is conducted in a small classroom setting. Students will each be provided with a secure demo/test OpenDaylight environment for intense, hands-on access – initially via GUI-based tools (e.g., DLUX) that leverage students’ existing knowledge, then via ssh shell and command-line interaction. We’ll cover everything: from architecture and component interaction, through configuration, deployment, tuning, common use cases and troubleshooting – complete preparation for the real-world challenges faced in OpenDaylight deployments.
