  1. This would presumably include a documented set of demonstrations of the ONAP Platform Release 1 use cases  with some initial set of Reference VNFs compliant to the VNF Requirements.

    It may also be useful; to have some training material on how to best engage with the ONAP community.

  2. I would like to be part of this project. Please let me know how do I get involved in this.

    Brief introduction about myself is given below - 

    I have been in Telecom Industry for about 18 years. I am currently one of the certified trainers of TMForum providing training on Frameworx across the globe. I have also contributed for preparing some of the training materials. As a co-founder of ChaturManas Consultants, I am involved in providing SDN & NFV training. 

    Best Regards,

    Vijayakumar K N

  3. I would love to help out in the certification and training area. I have a background in course and exam development, and have been a part of several MOOC's in SDN in the past. Additionally, I work directing the certification program at MEF, where we have developed certs in Carrier Ethernet, SDN/NFV and some introductory things. I've been approached by a few people who think that it's time for an ONAP certification, and would love to help. Please let me know when the groups meets and I will try to be there. 

    1. Thanks, Rick. Will connect with you.

  4. As we announced last week, we are building a framework where any org can participate, and their certification can relate coherently to the certifications in the ecosystem. Here's where we are, and where we are going. An ONAP certification could certainly fit in our ecosystem.
