Our First get together went Fairly well! about 40 people from various parts of the industry came and some from as far afield as Cape Town!

It was agreed we will have events every quarter, in a very similar format to the one we had last night. eg some technical talks, and a good load of social! Thank you to Seacom who sponsored our drinks and snacks, and the lovely venue provided by Point yacht club.

We started off with an announcement of the Quad9.net project. You can see the presentation here. Simply, quad9 is a public DNS resolver with some very very nifty security features. -> Quad9 Intro detailed

Donald then gave us a chat about his recent visit to Afpif, and also a discussion about why you should peer in more places!.

We finished off with a technical talk about tracerouter, which was borrowed from nanog. You can download the full presentation here.

We hope to see you all at the next event!






KZN Network Operators group is a group of individuals, who have a strong interest in Internet related technologies.  Typically, we are people that work, or have worked at ISPs, WISPS, hosting companies, or other business that make significant use of the Internet.

Traditionally KZN’s technical community has not been particulary well co-ordinated, and we’re trying to change that, by arranging activities of interest for people in the sector.  We intend to have a meetups, to chat about some technical stuff;  learn, and teach each other in a social, non-competitive environment, whilst still have time for some drinks and socialising.

We will use our mailing list to co-ordinate primarily, so please join us, and contribute.  Our mailinglist is at http://lists.kznnog.co.za/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/kznnog-discuss

Hope to see you soon!
