In this article, we give one example of the possible communities that are now easier to build around RIPE Atlas probes. With the tagging of similar probes, existing communities can use additional tools for creating and analysing RIPE Atlas measurements, such as "IXP Country Jedi", to create their own interpretation of the available data. We are hoping this is going to be an inspiration to the reader, and an invitation to play with the results and improve on the code. … Read more
Vesna Manojlovic is the Senior Community Builder with a focus on measurement tools. She joined the RIPE NCC as a Trainer in 1999. In 2003, she took responsibility for developing and delivering advanced courses, such as RPSL, Routing Registry, DNSSEC and IPv6. In 2008, she lead efforts to establish IPv6 RIPEness as a measure of IPv6 deployment among LIRs. In 2011, she joined the Science Division as Manager of the Measurements Community Building team. Vesna also takes part in and gives presentations at many technical conferences and workshops. Vesna received a BS in Computer Science and Informatics from the School of Electrical Engineering, University of Belgrade. She has three children.

Here is an example of how cross-pollination between two or more communities can create success. An overlap between IETF participants, RIPE Atlas users and listeners of a popular German podcast has led to growth in the deployment of RIPE Atlas probes (hardware devices that measure Internet infrastructure). We are still interested in expanding this platform in areas and networks that need more coverage. … Read more
At the RIPE NCC, we are grateful for the contribution RIPE Atlas ambassadors make to the success of the RIPE Atlas measurements platform. In this article, we focus on a handy RIPEstat tool that can be used to visualise the results of their efforts. The tool provides a historical view of country-specific growth of RIPE Atlas probe numbers and allows for comparisons of up to four countries in the same graph. … Read more
The fourth RIPE NCC Hackathon was as fun and productive as the previous three, with even more supporting organisations and participants. This short article aims to express our gratitude to everyone involved and to give a summary of our experiences, while several projects will be described in more detail in the follow-up articles. … Read more
Maybe surprisingly, there is quite an overlap between the RIPE community and the hackers community. Visiting a local hackerspace has been a tradition for more than five years: during RIPE Meetings, network operators groups, IXP meetings and other technical events. This is a nostalgic look back to the history of these encounters, and an invitation to join us for future explorations. … Read more
