DNS Hackathon

Join the DNS Hackathon on 20-21 May

Hackathons provide a great opportunity to meet others in your field and outside it, and to exchange knowledge and experience with people other than your everyday colleagues. We aim to develop new tools, ideas, experiments, measurements and possible solutions all revolving around the DNS – because it’s always DNS isn’t it! :-D

Presentations on Sunday, 21 May at 16:00 CEST: We will open the doors for anyone to come watch the project presentations about the work done over the weekend!
Venue: Dock 15, Rotterdam Ahoy Convention Centre (the RIPE Meeting venue)

When: Tuesday, 23 May, 17:30 – 18:30
Where: Lunchroom

The Dutch Network Operator Group NLNOG will be hosting a Cheese BoF on Tuesday for RIPE 86 attendees. The concept is BYOC: Bring Your Own Cheese. Everyone is invited to bring a piece of cheese from their home country or region so we can have a proper cheese tasting event with many different types of cheese. Bringing some drinks or other snacks can be smart too. And of course, everyone who didn’t bring some cheese is more than welcome to join us!
