The RIPE Atlas Open House takes place tomorrow. Here's a look at what to expect!
Over the past ten years, RIPE Atlas has continued growing and evolving in the midst of a rapidly changing Internet. For the user, there have been new kinds of phenomena and events to measure and new use cases to explore. For us, there have been new challenges in achieving greater coverage and new solutions to those challenges. In all of this, we’ve continued working together as a community to make RIPE Atlas into something that can be of benefit to all of us, no matter from where in the world we happen to be using the Internet.
10 Years of RIPE Atlas Open House
As part of the celebrations around ten years of RIPE Atlas, we’ll be holding an Open House event on Wednesday this week where five speakers will join people from all across the community to talk about how far RIPE Atlas has come and how it’s being used today.
The Open House takes place on Wednesday 18 November from 12:00 - 13:30 local Amsterdam time (UTC+1) and is open to everyone.
Come listen to a mix of talks on the history of RIPE Atlas and current developments from the RIPE NCC. Hear use cases from external speakers all working with RIPE Atlas in diverse and interesting ways. As an Open House, there's also plenty room for open discussion, giving you the opportunity to talk about the past, present and future of the service with the people who are using and supporting it right now.
