YANG Tools: This is an infrastructure project initiated by Cisco aimed at developing necessary tooling and libraries providing ubiquitous support for YANG as a data modeling language within OpenDaylight.
"Collaborative development is powerful in bringing together the best and brightest in their fields and surfacing solutions to the computing industry's pressing challenges. SDN is one such challenge," said Jim Zemlin, executive director at The Linux Foundation. "OpenDaylight has seen a level of participation that is rare at so early a stage in an open source software project and we're excited about its progress. This momentum is a good sign for the future of SDN."
Developers who are interested in creating the future of SDN can join the project at any time: http://www.opendaylight.org/developers/how-participate. As with any well-run open source project dedicated developers who contribute high-value code can evolve to become committers in the project, with the lead committer being elected by his/her peers to sit on the OpenDaylight TSC.
About the OpenDaylight Project
The OpenDaylight Project is a collaborative open source project whose aim is to accelerate adoption of software-defined networking (SDN), creating a more transparent approach, fostering new innovation and reducing risk. Founded by industry leaders and open to all, the OpenDaylight community is developing a common, open SDN framework consisting of code and blueprints. Get involved: www.opendaylight.org.
OpenDaylight is a Collaborative Project at The Linux Foundation. Linux Foundation Collaborative Projects are independently funded software projects that harness the power of collaborative development to fuel innovation across industries and ecosystems. www.linuxfoundation.org
