The OCP Networking Project will host an Engineering Workshop in Mountain View, CA on August 29, 2017

The OCP Engineering Workshops are working sessions that are meant to be technical in nature and are designed to allow the OCP Project Communities to come together to work on the goals and set the direction of each project as it supports the mission and vision of the OCP Foundation.  These Engineering Workshops are designed to encourage, empower and inspire the OCP community to communicate, collaborate and contribute! These events are free to the public, but do require registration. 

The goals of these workshops include:

  • Increase community participation and stickiness
  • Increase the OCP technology portfolio; depth and breadth of specifications and charters
  • Drive the product-ionization of OCP’s specifications
  • Solidify specification versioning pipeline, release process and naming conventions
  • Take into account/understand the supplier needs and OCP partner needs
  • Implementation of OCP’s legal framework (CLA and OCPHLs)
  • Building out/addressing technologies for new sectors.
