vendors, distributors, system integrators and users.

This workshop is similar in spirit to previous switchdev workshops.

           - Mellanox mlxsw driver updates

- Open issues and challenges
- New vendors
- Supporting new features down the pike:
       - Eg: EVPN-MH, port security, dynamic NAT and others
- Operationalizing Linux networking
        Automation and DevOps
