Earlier this month in San Francisco, 200 edge computing users, industry experts and researchers attended OpenDev http://www.opendevconf.com/, a two-day collaborative working event designed to help advance the future of edge computing. This Superuser article http://superuser.openstack.org/articles/developing-edge-computing-use-cases-reference-architectures/ recaps the event and outlines the five major edge use cases that were identified. Videos are now available to view here http://www.opendevconf.com/videos. The opening Keynote video includes demo presentations from AT&T, eBay and Verizon, as well as updates from Intel and edge pioneer, Dr. Mahadev Satyanarayanan. All working sessions were documented in etherpads; the links are can be found on the OpenDev Schedule http://www.opendevconf.com/schedule/.
Additionally the OpenDev Takeaways etherpad https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/OpenDevTakeaways covers the outcomes of each working session. Taking the learnings from OpenDev, the OpenStack team will write a white paper to describe a minimum set of use cases and reference architectures for edge computing. There will also be a Forum session on the topic during the Sydney Summit.
Future edge content will continue to be aggregated at openstack.org/edge http://openstack.org/edge.
