BGP for non-experts - afternoon

BGP is becoming more and more relevant outside of pure networking. Developers need to understand TCP/IP for their own projects, micro-services use networking for performance and redundancy. Virtual Machines move from host to host, and need to have network traffic delivered to them. BGP is the backbone protocol of the Internet, and as a Data Center networking protocol for Facebook, Google, and Microsoft.

I will teach you the relevant basics of networking and how BGP is used in the wild. At my day job, I run the 4th most connected network in Germany, and are a developer with OpenBSD focusing on networking and OpenBGPD.

Attendees must bring a laptop that is able to connect to the local wifi or ethernet.

Prior knowledge of subnets or routing is not required, but can be helpful.

NOTE: This session runs all day
