Going to a tech conference?
Take off your shoes. Laptops in their own bins. Please step over here for an additional pat-down.
You’re in the “Abandon all hope for overhead space” boarding group.
Once you’re belted in, the dude in front of you reclines his seat into your personal space ten seconds after the plane’s in the air. The lady in 19B shoulder-surfs as you catch up on email.
Ah, the glamour of conference travel!
You don’t need to get on a plane to expand your knowledge or learn new things. The Packet Pushers’ next Virtual Design Clinic is Thursday, March 14 at 11:00 am Eastern US. Live and online, you can attend the Virtual Design Clinic from your laptop.
Skip the bad hotel coffee. Forget the expense report. Register for VDC 4 and attend for free. Here’s what’s in store.
Three ‘Ask Me Anything’ sessions where expert panelists answer your design and networking questions. Our panelists for VDC 4 are:
Technical Presentation 1:
P4: Progressing Past Previous Programmable Network Paradigms – Aaron A. Glenn
P4 is an open-source programming language for network hardware and part of a broader ecosystem that promises a new way to design and operate any type of packet-based network.
- Understand how the P4 language, the P4Runtime control plane API, and the Portable Switch Architecture definition fit into the spectrum of SDN technologies
- Learn the advantages of a programmable dataplane
- Learn how P4 is different from OpenFlow, where P4 can be useful in a brownfield network, and how to begin experimenting with P4 technologies
Technical Presentation 2:
Your IPv6 Address Planning Survival Guide: Starting an Address Plan the Right Way – Tom Coffeen
This presentation will provide attendees the IPv6 address planning background, concepts, and examples they’ll need to create or revise an effective address plan for an organization and network of any size or type. Attendees will learn about standard IPv6 allocation types and sizes, overcoming “IPv4 thinking”, and how to begin building an IPv6 address plan that streamlines network operations and easily accommodates growth and change.
Watch On Your Own Time
If you can’t make it on the day of the event, we’ll record and post every ‘Ask Me Anything’ session and technical presentation on our membership site, Ignition.
Here’s a sample Ask Me Anything video from Virtual Design Clinic 3.
Ignition is free to join, and your membership gets you access to the complete library of all our VDC videos, plus a bunch of other content.
Register now for VDC 4 and we’ll see you online on March 14th.
