*Dear P4 Enthusiasts:*

*

We are pleased to announce that the P4 Developer Day on Tuesday, April 
30th, will offer two tracks this year: a beginner and an advanced.  Both 
tracks will be delivered by experience instructors, using a software 
platform that will be made available shortly before the event.


Beginner Track:

This track is for developers who are new to P4 and want a tutorial-style 
introduction to the languages main features. It is organized around a 
series of programming exercises in which participants implement 
conventional and novel solutions to various problems in networking 
including:

  *

    Basic forwarding, tunneling, and source routing

  *

    Load balancing

  *

    Monitoring and telemetry

  *

    P4Runtime

Only basic programming knowledge is required, but familiarity with 
Python and using a Linux virtual machines will be helpful.

Advanced Track:

This track is for developers with intermediate knowledge of the P4 
language. It is organized around a sequence of hands-on exercises that 
show how to build a leaf-spine data center fabric based on Segment 
Routing over IPv6 (SRv6), using the ONOS SDN controller:

  *

    Basic forwarding

  *

    Bridging

  *

    SRv6

  *

    ONOS Control Plane

  *

    Testing in Mininet

Only basic knowledge of Java is required. The track will include a brief 
introduction to ONOS for beginners. Participants will be provided with a 
skeleton implementation of the application to complete, filling in the 
relevant parts to generate run-time table entries and other entities to 
implement bridging and SRv6 capabilities.

**For any individuals that have already registered,we will reach out to 
you separately to determine which track is right for you. If you haven’t
