Collaboration is key when it comes to open source, and the Linux Foundation Networking Fund is no different. This panel, which is comprised of TSC chairs from several of The Linux Foundation’s networking projects, will address the upcoming advantages of cross-community collaboration specifically within technical and developer communities across infrastructure, CI/CD integration, release timing and processes, and more. Learn how various communities are working together towards the common goal of accelerating open networking technologies, with emphasis on: key focus areas for the next 6-12 months; expected areas for potential collaboration; and best practices from each project that can benefit the larger community.
