As the industry steadily moves towards programmable networks with automation penetrating both control and data planes, a demand for developers to be equipped with personal testing and development networking lab instances grows.
In the past, a typical network lab instance was a bunch of hardware statically interconnected and managed by a lab person. Scheduling lab access, changing ports patching, upgrading the software, and scaling topology are challenging problems for developers as they iterate on their software tasks.
This talk introduces the Containerlab project that applies DevOps practices to network labs and leverages virtual and containerized network operating systems. With Containerlab, developers can stand up personal network labs using a declarative approach – the same way they deploy applications.

Keynote Presentation: Two Lengths – the Power of Keeping things Simple
Chris Cook is a former double Olympian and double Commonwealth Games swimming champion. He was British and Commonwealth 100m Breaststroke record holder, and seventh fastest man in history for his event.
Chris will take LINX117 attendees on a journey through the highs, and fair few of the lows, throughout his Olympic career. The main premise of this talk is based around the concept of ‘Keeping things simple’ and this is the part that has audiences talking and relating to, because he shares the power and the brilliance that exists within all of us (…and our teams) when we focus on the process to deliver the outcome.
This talk is not only lifting spirits, but it’s also giving teams the chance to engage with a concept that is relevant to our everyday working lives.
