The following is a guest post from i2Coalition member iMiller Public Relations.
In this age of technological growth and evolution, staying current and informed is critical to remaining relevant among peers. The problem is, given new and unfamiliar innovations coupled with constant changes to industry paradigms, it has become increasingly difficult to stay ahead of the curve and obtain modern and accurate information. Without proper continual education, field experts and burgeoning professionals alike can become stagnant as they find themselves reaching a plateau in their growth throughout the industry. So what’s the answer? How can we solve this pressing need for current and relevant education?
Enter NANOG– the North American Network Operators Group. NANOG is a not-for-profit association whose sole mission is to continually improve the Internet by leveraging training programs from real-world engineers. As the world of technology and telecommunications grows and changes, the creators and developers of NANOG thoroughly understand the need for high-caliber educational opportunities.
NANOG will be hosting its next event (NANOG 62) in Baltimore MD from October 5-8, 2014. A back-to-back meeting with ARIN (the American Registry for Internet Numbers), NANOG 62 offers two Education Series classes with a focus on routing fundamentals, BGP to Peering and IPv6. These classes, held on Sunday October 5th from 8am to 5pm present a unique opportunity for budding engineers or graduate students, as well as current Internet technicians, allowing them to learn best practices, refresh on routing skills, gain access to industry thought leaders and advance knowledge that will benefit careers.
Each class includes a full day of instruction, lunch, snacks, and a sponsored evening social filled with networking opportunities with Internet industry veterans. The price for each Education Series class also provides access to the first day of NANOG 62 which will take place on October 6-8, 2014, generating a great opportunity to network with colleagues, freshen-up skills, learn advanced networking techniques, and discover new network applications.
