Best of all, ION Sri Lanka is FREE to attend! We’re still waiting on the link to registration, but we’ll notify you just as soon as it’s up. In the meantime, if you want to register for the full SANOG event, that link is available here.

Afilias_No_TagWe remain excited to have Afilias as our ION Conference Series Sponsor, and Jitender Kumar from Afilias India here doing the ‘Why Implement DNSSEC’ session in the morning. Afilias has proven to be a great partner for the past few IONs and we’re proud to have them on board.

We continue to build on the success of our past events, where we’ve 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.

If you’ll be in Kandy, please let us know by talking to us on FacebookTwitter, or Google+ (using the hashtag #IONConf), or emailing us.

If you can’t be there in person, we’re planning to webcast the event and will provide more information in a couple of weeks. After the event, please check the ION Sri Lanka page to find the presentations and video archives. We can’t wait for this event and we look forward to revealing the insights shared by industry experts.
