RIPE NCC Open House: The IPv6 Skills Gap

To what extent is there an IPv6 skills gap, and what can we do to address it? Join us for a discussion on what is needed to deploy IPv6 in terms of skills.

Wednesday, 29 June | 10:00-11:30 UTC | 12:00-13:30 CEST

 
 
It’s been a decade since the World IPv6 Launch Day was held, and we’ve seen a slow but steady growth in the use of IPv6. Across the world, governments are increasingly aware of the need to make services available over IPv6 and promote its use. However, adequate knowledge remains a blocker to transition to IPv6. 
 
The RIPE NCC and the Dutch government recently cooperated and ran a pilot project to address this. In this Open House, Robin Gelhard of Forum Standaardisatie will speak about challenges they face in managing the IPv6 transition. Carlo P.L. Ciciriello, of Learning Connections, will speak about his endeavours to build IPv6 skills in collaboration with partners from the industry.
