Virtual Peers for Beers

‹ Back
Thank you for joining us for a virtual handshake event.

Studies have shown that peering relationships are established through handshake agreements. Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the peering community has been deprived of in person meetings where they establish and develop peering relationships. 

To overcome this challenge, the organisers of the Virtual Peering Series – Africa and the AfPIF program committee organized Virtual Beers for Peers to be held on 8 December 2020 from 13:00 – 14:30 UTC.

Agenda
  • 13:00 – 13:15: Opening Session and “Peering Personals” presentations – moderated by Kyle Spencer
  • From 13:15: Scheduled “Peering Bilaterals”
  • From 13:15: Social networking (For those not interested in the “Peering Bilaterals”)

The social event was held on the “Gather Town” platform.
