About the author
I studied Computer Science at the TU Berlin, Germany, and have been a member of the RIPE community for over twenty years. Currently I am serving as the Chair of the RIPE Community.
The RIPE code of conduct is ready. RIPE 83 is getting closer. And the community is back to business, coming together in a whole variety of endeavours and events to address changes and challenges in network operations, policy development, regional issues, sustainability, and much more.
While many have been taking the time to get some much needed rest and relaxation over the summer, the community as a whole has continued its work on various activities and events. Now, as we head into September, preparations for the next RIPE Meeting are well underway.
This June saw a variety of events taking place across the community, draft proposals issuing from RIPE Task Forces, and cautiously hopeful planning around future events that - fingers crossed - might just provide us all with a much needed chance to meet in person in the coming months.
This May we held our third virtual RIPE Meeting. And, although a certain feeling of online meeting fatigue has inevitably set in for many of us by now, we nevertheless saw presentations on a range of interesting topics accompanied by good discussion.
RIPE 82 is approaching fast! In this article, get a sneak preview of some of the topics that you can expect to see at the upcoming RIPE Meeting as well as an overview of the activities the RIPE Chair Team has been busy with over the past few weeks.
