ION Djibouti LogoIt’s almost time for our first ION Conference of the year! ION Djibouti is less than a week away, taking place Monday morning, 2 June, at the Palace de Peuple in Djibouti City and co-located with the Africa Internet Summit.

We continue to build on the success of our past events, where we had industry experts from across the globe answer your specific deployment questions and provided a mix of high-level strategic discussions, real-world deployment experiences, and hands-on technical training. ION Conferences also help us get your direct feedback on what else you need to get started so that we know what new resources to add to the Deploy360 site next.

We are really excited about ION Djibouti and our amazing lineup of world-class speakers on IPv6 and DNSSEC. Registration is free, so please register today.
