Thank you for becoming a new member of the Open Networking Foundation. You participation is critical for achieving our shared goal of transforming networking.
To help you be as effective as possible, we've created this handbook to give you all of the tools and information you need to get started. If you have any questions, suggestions or feedback about this, please let us know.
Why members matter, what is expected, what do they get out of it, what does ONF get out of it, win-win...
This section provides guidance on where to go to start getting involved in community discussions and activities.
We're excited to you've joined the community and we want to share that news with existing community members. For partners, we'll work with you to do a dedicated post about your organization and what you're doing. For other organizations, we tend to announce new members in small groups. Soon after you join, our PR team will be in touch to work with you on an announcement.
There's no need to wait for a formal announcement before you show up and talk to other community members. Please feel free to join the discussion on any of the community channels (more details on those below). Send more information about who you are and what you're interested in, offer thoughts and ideas on existing conversations, and take part in the activities taking place in the community.
Community discussions happen in a number of places and it can feel overwhelming at first to figure out where to go and how to keep track of it all. You don't need to subscribe to or monitor every one of these channels – important information will often be shared across most or all of these.
How to be an effective community member (where to go, what to do, etc.)
Documenting what you’re doing (regular reports per release about your contributions), sharing out news (ie, adding your product to ONOS points of validation page), etc.
