The RIPE NCC is launching a new way for our members and the RIPE community to dive-deep into a topic without leaving their computer.


RIPE NCC::Educa bridges the gap between a full-day training course and a one-hour webinar. It’s an online learning event that brings industry experts together to share insight, expertise and best practice with those that want more in-depth knowledge on a particular subject. 

Join us on 5 October 2017 for RIPE NCC::Educa: RIPE Atlas

RIPE NCC::Educa is a natural next step in the RIPE NCC’s e-learning offering. We’d love to give courses to all 17,000 members face-to-face, but with limited time and resources we need to think outside the box! Webinars give our members the chance to learn about the RIPE NCC and how to use our services with just their laptop and an Internet connection. Our webinars are fully booked as soon as we announce them, so given the extremely high demand, we knew we were on the right track. Think of RIPE NCC::Educa events as a series of webinars on the same subject matter, all delivered on the same day. 

RIPE NCC::Educa: RIPE Atlas focuses on four topics:  

  1. RIPE Atlas and Internet Exchange Points
  2. RIPE Atlas and DNS
  3. Tools and Software using RIPE Atlas
  4. RIPE Atlas and Security

You will learn about the future plans for RIPE Atlas, and if you are not familiar with what it is, don’t miss out on the first part, where we give a short introduction to what RIPE Atlas is.

Our experts include RIPE NCC staff at the heart of RIPE Atlas, as well as guest speakers from the RIPE community that will share their own experience and best practices. The presentations will be practical, easy-to-follow and interactive. If you have questions during the event, ask them! We are there to help you.

Register! Don’t miss out on this experience.

You can participate for the entire day or just the topics you’re most interested in. Check out the agenda and register. Log in for the sessions that interest you the most.
