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; in 2015 she moved to Communications Department as Senior Community Builder, with a focus on organising hackathons. Vesna gives presentations at many technical conferences and workshops, and enjoys visiting hackerspaces.

RIPE Atlas was used to perform IPv6 reachability testing before and during the World IPv6 Launch. One success story and the usage statistics lead us to the conclusion that this feature needs to remain available even after the "launch" is over.
RIPEstat has a new DNS widget for World IPv6 Launch. The widget can be included in any website where you'd like viewers to be able to perform IPv6 (and IPv4) DNS lookups or view your site's DNS details.
RIPE Atlas is releasing a new service for Local Internet Registries (LIRs): if you are a member of the RIPE NCC, you can test the reachability of your IPv6 website from all IPv6-capable RIPE Atlas probes (currently more than 600).
The new Address Space Hierarchy widget allows you to see how address space is used. It shows how a particular prefix fits within a less specific block, and the more specific prefixes which fit within it. In this article we look at the widget in more depth.
The new RIPEstat Object Browser widget provides an interactive, visual overview of the relationship between objects in the RIPE database. This article describes the features of the widget.
The RIPEstat "birds of a feather" (BoF) session during RIPE 64 in Ljubljana drew a number of people interested in RIPEstat development. To encourage feedback, we announced a survey with the chance to win a RIPEstat t-shirt. New widgets (Address Space Hierarchy and Object Browser) were announced, …
Behind this cryptic title is the announcement of awarding credits for RIPE Atlas User-Defined Measurements (UDM) to RIPE NCC members: Local Internet Registries (LIRs). Limited test program will start at RIPE64 meeting in Ljubljana, 16-20 April.
On 9 August, Belarus experienced country-wide Internet outages. Here's a first glance at what our tools and datasets have to tell us about the scale of these outages and their impact.
We attended the Digital Campus online event that went on for 24 hours over 3 days in more than 30 countries simultaneously. The aim is to connect young innovators around the globe using technology to support society.
The 12th edition of EuroDIG, the pan-European Internet governance event, is taking place from 10-12 June 2020 online. You can expect sessions on technical and operational issues, security, justice, public empowerment, lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic and more. RIPE NCC staff at the event …
We take on the Quantum Internet simultaneously in six nodes across Europe on 5-6 November 2019. Join us in Delft, Dublin, Geneva, Padua, Paris or Sarajevo!
To prepare you for the upcoming Open Source WG discussion at RIPE 78, we are re-publishing our report from the most successful IETF Hackathon that took place in March 2019.
The RIPE NCC and Juniper Networks co-hosted the first Deployathon on RPKI – a two-day event that brought together network professionals from 7 countries to work on practical aspects of routing security.
Welcome to the anticipated 2018 Quantum Internet Hackathon report. Here we share the results of last months’ successful hackathon held at the Volkshotel in Amsterdam.
On the 5 October 2017 we launched our very first RIPE NCC::Educa event. It turned out to be quite a success. Here's a summary and some plans for next year.
Please find in this article insights into solutions that mid-size organisations need to deploy on the DNS and BGP level. We are monitoring success using, among other tools, RIPE Atlas.
This is the first in a series of blog posts on efforts to increase diversity and inclusivity in the RIPE community. The focus of this article is to report on activities before and during the RIPE 74 Meeting in Budapest in May 2017. We also invite you to join the mailing list, and help shape the ne…
I like the related article in Atlantic ("I Spent Two Years Trying to Fix the Gender Imbalance in My (STEM) Stories") from February 2018, and a quote: "Crucially, I tracked how I was doing in a simple spreadsheet. I can’t overstate the importance of that: It is a vaccine against self-delusion. It prevents me from wrongly believing that all is well." https://www.theatlantic.com/science/archive/2018/02/i-spent-two-years-trying-to-fix-the-gender-imbalance-in-my-stories/552404/

Thanks, Stephane! In addition to Stephane's tools being updated to enable this new measurement, Hugo Salgado "patched" the "official" CLI toolset, and since then the new version has been published by Chris Amin: https://github.com/RIPE-NCC/ripe-atlas-tools/ So now there are multiple ways to measure latency towards your web server using command-line tools!
“Hi Vesna, thanks for covering this! Does the Country Jedi have to be installed from GitHub to use? Or is there an online portal? I am not sure how to get it to work, but I want to share it with people (and encourage them to use it). I liked Mirjam's presentation at the CEE Peering Days, and I think it could be really useful. Feel free to ping me on another platform too.”
Hi Michael, thanks for your interest! Yes, IXP-Country-Jedi is available both as an installed version, and as an "online portal" - however, it is still a prototype! You can find the latest data per country here: http://sg-pub.ripe.net/emile/ixp-country-jedi/latest/ For example, Serbia: http://sg-pub.ripe.net/emile/ixp-country-jedi/latest/RS/ The additional "Per AS report" is only available for Greece, for now: http://sg-pub.ripe.net/petros/ixpcountryjedi/2017-04-01/GR/perasn/index.html And the code on GitHub is here: https://github.com/emileaben/ixp-country-jedi I hope you have fun using it, and thanks for pointing people to our tools! Cheers, Vesna
This is a pair of frequent questions: 1) I have too many credits - who can I give them to? 2) I need more credits - who wants to give me some? Usually, people post their offers & requests to either "firstname.lastname@example.org" mailing list, or on Twitter, with a hashtag #RIPEAtlas or mentioning the user @RIPE_Atlas So please check and use either one of those. Thanks! Vesna

Geert Jan, thank you for helping us to grow RIPE Atlas in the "not so easy" parts of the world! As for your questions, we considered them, and I would like to separate two aspects: - We are indeed distribute probes (also thanks to ambassadors like you) to all parts of the world. However, probes are still predominantly deployed in the parts of the Internet that is already covered pretty well - maybe that's due to the nature of the ”network effect”. - This specific article was not looking into the numbers of probes that were lost, postponed, or for other reasons *never connected*. All probes in the analysis and the graphs above were connected at some point in their lifetime, and then either continued to live or "died”. We will continue to observe RIPE Atlas probe distribution, deployment and lifetime, and we will publish an update when there are any new developments.
