The Sudan Network Operator’s Group (SDNOG) is holding its third annual training event in Khartoum, Sudan from the 14th to the 18th of August 2016. The event consists of a mixture of instructor lead technical training workshops and plenary presentations focusing on Networking and System Administration topics. Michuki Mwangi from the Internet Society Africa Regional Bureau is at the event as a facilitator in the Network Security sessions where he will also be making presentations on Internet Society’s campaign to build participation from Africa in the IETF. The Internet society is happy to support this year’s event as a Gold Sponsor.

Next week, the Tanzania Network Operator Group (TzNOG) will also be holding its fourth annual training event from the 22nd to the 26th of August 2016. The event consists of technical training courses on topics of System Administration, Network Monitoring and Routing and will mainly be attended by network and system administration engineers. Kevin Chege from the Internet Society Africa Regional Bureau will be participating as a facilitator in the System Administration track. This year, the participants of the TzNOG workshop lacking basic networking and system administration skills were taken through ISOC’s online “Introduction to Network Operations Course” in order to build foundational skills. This included engineers from TechCHIX, an upcoming IT group comprised of women engineers in Tanzania who will also be attending the TzNOG Workshop.
