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.
