NZNOG 2020 registrations are filling up, so if you’re a “late registerer” it’s worth
getting in there ASAP so as not to miss out.
As you all know it’s based in Christchurch this year, so if you’re local and haven’t been
to an NZNOG conference you should come along. We move the NZNOG conference around so that
we can make it more accessible to people in each region, so, please take advantage of
There’s a number of tutorials and workshops happening in the 2 days before the conference
- most of these will appeal to any organisation with a router or two, not just service
providers. They are really good value - thanks to the generosity of the trainers and our
sponsors, what NZNOG charges for these is less than our costs, so much better value than
industry training you’ll often see.
Our conference keynote speaker is Dr. Paul Vixie, who’s also running one of those
tutorials - Threat Hunting Using Passive DNS. This is a pretty rare chance get some
training from one of the pioneers of the Internet and modern computing. This would be a
great one if you’re more of an enterprise network as well as for service providers.
This email will almost certainly reach you due to software Paul has written - cron, bind,
dhcpd.. you get the idea.
We’ve also got Red Hat providing a couple of different training sessions on Containers,
and using Ansible for network config.
APNIC are running a course on BGP basics, and another on ROA validation - very important
if you’re doing any sort of BGP or peering these days.
