This has been a busy month for the Out of the Box Network Developer group. The first meet-up of the year was held in Santa Clara and was well-attended. Planning for the upcoming DPDK Summit and Hands-on Lab in Bangalore is well underway, and we have a full calendar of topics and events for 2018, including mobile edge computing (MEC), Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK), machine learning, autonomous driving, visual cloud, security, and more. If you have ideas or topics you can present, please let us know. We are always looking for fresh content.
