The AT&T Foundry, UT Dallas and Juniper OpenLab Hackathon Update
We are off to a roaring start at the AT&T Foundry and Juniper OpenLabs Hackathon in conjunction with the Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the University of Texas in Dallas. Yesterday the students attended a session on Entrepreneurship and today they are diving into an overview of Software Defined Networks and the Junos Developer Network. It’s events like this that give students the opportunity to demonstrate their skills as developers, future business leaders and entrepreneurs.
Later today the students will start building applications using the Junos Space SDK to monitor real-time traffic, aggregate data for operators and dynamically provision network elements based on what they have learned. These are real life examples of problems and opportunities that customers face daily.
I’m always amazed at what these students come-up with and their ability to think outside of the box. Hal summed it up correctly yesterday when he alluded to the magic that occurs when a student goes to the whiteboard and starts the discussion with the simple phrase “what if.” My hope is that these students walk away from this event with new insights on what is possible.
Who knows we may have the next AT&T or Juniper Distinguished Engineer in the crowd or better yet maybe the next Pradeep Sindhu or Alexander Graham Bell participating this week.
Keep checking back throughout the week for more updates on what is happening at the event.
Juniper’s first OpenLab, based in central New Jersey, is a center for software excellence to drive new network innovation across an entrepreneurial IP networking ecosystem embracing our customers, partners, universities and other industry organizations. We’ve been testing out the new facility for a couple of months now and will be holding the official grand opening in June.
OpenLab ‘s focus is on igniting the development of new network-integrated software applications as enabled by our suite of programmable software platforms. In concert with our progressive software mission, OpenLab will serve as a key instrument in enhancing the network’s value as a strategic and competitive asset for our customers.

Tesla is a total rethink of the car—and the car company. So when given the choice, they did a total rethink of the network. And that’s how the world’s most revolutionary car became an endpoint on the new network.
Aggressive growth is part of Tesla’s plan, and the modularity of Junos delivers unparalleled reliability and scalability. Innovation is the key to Tesla’s success, and Junos Space opens a new world of possibilities with streamlined app development and third-party solutions.
The New Network is here, and it’s coming at you fast—with zero emissions. Read more about Telsa’s solutions at http://www.juniper.net/us/en/solutions/stories/tesla/?utm_source=customer_stories&utm_medium=interactive&utm_campaign=stories.

Is it just me or does it appear that Google is getting ready to seriously unleash the next wave of interesting products, innovation and business models. It started with the change at CEO. You know have Larry back in charge and with that came an entire host of executive changes including the promotion of VicG who has been rumored to be working on a super secret project around social. Yesterday Marissa Mayer announced their new location strategy which makes total sense. Can you say big revenue opportunity? It just seems like these guys have their mojo back in a big way.
The Day One book series are available for FREE download in PDF format using the book links below. Some books also feature a “Copy and Paste” edition for easy copying of Junos configurations. I think you will like this series. I love the one on Navigating The Junos XML Hierarchy. Enjoy and happy coding.
Juniper is pouring millions into an all-out marketing blitz designed to cement the company as a channel and technology marketing powerhouse.
I’ve been so busy with my move and building the new organization at Juniper that I have totally neglected my blog. Bad Eddie (:-}). So here’s a recap of what’s been going on. The number of partners using Junos continues to grow at a rapid pace. We recently joined the Eclipse Foundation and have the Junos Space SDK fully integrated into the Eclipse IDE.
Nagi has created a couple of cool applications using Junos Space and .NET – Ah the power of web services.
This week we are at the Juniper Partner Conference and the team is actively participating in events around the world (telling the Junos story).
Finally my daughter Lauren will be attending Virginia Tech in the fall. She will be a 3rd generation Hokie and future software geek (love it).
Now that you are updated – I will try harder to keep the blog current.
