If you cannot be here in person, we will live stream / webcast the event via YouTube Live events. Note that given this is UTC+5:30, the start of ION Sri Lanka may actually be in the late hours of Saturday, 17 January for people in the United States. You may find it helpful to use one of the time/date conversion tools to ensure your timing is correct. All the sessions will be recorded for later viewing and the slides will be available online as well and linked from the agenda.

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