SANTA CLARA -- Open Networking Summit (ONS) 2014 -- As you'd expect, the spotlight is very much on software-defined networking (SDN) at ONS, a conclave of engineers, business leaders, and researchers from service providers, vendors, and the enterprise world gathered to discuss the latest trends in open source networking.

Much of the effort on Day 1 (Monday) was focused on setup and tutorials, with an opening keynote in the late afternoon. Click the image below for a gallery of what I saw.

Re: I see Pac-Man graphs everywhere now, thanks!
Perhaps we should make a Pac-Man graph of Pac-Man graphs.

Pac-Man
This morning's keynote speaker also used a Pac-Man slide. This time the big part of the Pac-Man illustrated technology opex and the little part was capex. 

I sense a trend.

Open Source is here--and anyone who denies it does so at their peril.   Hopefully the transformation will continue within the equipment providers.

Re: Hungry?
@SarahReedy:  Yeah, kinda got that vibe too with the pickle/cupcake combination.  Sadly I would probably do just that because I do enjoy a good pickle and a cupcake.  Usually not at the same time but hey, they're there, right?

I'm a supporter of open source, so it was nice to see how far it's come.  A sense of belonging is pretty key for any job really; it's one of the reasons why I'm no longer with my previous place of employement.
