Rocky Mountian IPv6 Summit 2010
Update 28-May-2010: The RMv6 Summit was a great event and a huge success for CO ISOC! There were 250+ registered attendees and based on the seat availability in the hall, they all showed up for just about every session!
I must note that while wearing my “Network Architect” hat I do wish there was a bit more detailed, in-depth technical content – especially around translation methods. However, there were some excellent talks covering many high level aspects of IPv6 and the impending transition from IPv4 to IPv6. The caliber of speakers was high and the content was great from a broad strokes, introductory to intermediate knowledge perspective.
Perhaps even more valuable to CO ISOC as a sponsor of the event was the enthusiastic attendees and fabulous hallway conversations. I was able to talk to a large number of key players in the Colorado IT and ISP industries including folks from many of Colorado’s leading Universities. We also gained a dozen new members at the event!
Overall, I give the Rocky Mountain IPv6 Task Force high marks for a wonderful event! Thanks to everyone who worked to put on such a great summit here in Denver!
Also – we will be announcing the winner of the Daisy MP3 Player sometime this week, so stay tuned!
The Rocky Mountain IPv6 Task Force‘s annual IPv6 Summit is almost upon us! If you are going to be in or near Denver on 26 & 27 May, 2010, then you really should be at this great event! I have attended the previous two RMv6 Summits and I can tell you from experience that they are well worth attending. The task force sums it up quite well themselves on the registration page:
The Rocky Mountain IPv6 Summit is the largest annual IPv6 event in North America. This event is designed to educate you about IPv6 and the current state of IPv6 adoption.
By attending this event you will learn about what other organizations are doing to prepare for the migration to IPv6 and learn from those who are already utilizing the benefits of IPv6. You will collaborate with colleagues who are actively working on IPv6 research and implementation and learn about IPv6 technology from industry experts.
This two day event includes keynote speakers and sessions covering both an introduction to IPv6 and advanced sessions. Day two of the event focuses on tutorials.
As I mentioned a couple months ago on my own blog, I have been consistently surprised with just how much new information I come away from this event with. After reviewing the list of speakers, I have every reason to believe that this year will be no exception.

CO ISOC @ RMv6 Summit 2010
Yes, that’s right – CO ISOC is a sponsor of this year’s event and as such we will have a booth in the expo hall! We will be handing out all the latest promo shwag from ISOC, including info on the Next Generation Leaders program, IPv6 (of course), the latest IETF Journals, chapter reports, stickers, etc…
On top of the sweet handouts, we will be holding a raffle for everyone who signs up with CO ISOC during the event! That’s right – every person who lives in Colorado and becomes a new CO ISOC member during the 2010 Rocky Mountain IPv6 Summit (by signing up at our booth) will be entered to win an open source Daisy MP3 Player Kit! If you are already a member, make sure to tell your friends – maybe if they win they will let you build it for them!
As if that wasn’t enough, I will be manning the booth myself the majority of the time – which means that if you want a signed copy of Day One: Exploring IPv6, all you have to do is drop by the Juniper booth to grab your free copy and then swing by the CO ISOC booth for yours truly to scribble on it. I know – it’s exciting, right? Well, regardless of your desire to read a whole book(let) written by me, I hope that you will come to what promises to be another fantastic event!
See you there!
