The thirteenth regional meeting of the Caribbean Network Operators Group, or CaribNOG, will take place in Barbados from April 18 to 19, 2017.
CaribNOG is the region’s first volunteer-based community of network engineers, computer security experts and tech aficionados.
“At CaribNOG 13, we’re expecting a large turnout of network operators, telecommunications regulators, academics, Internet service providers, engineering and computer science students, special interest groups and government representatives, drawn from across the region and around the world,” said Bevil Wooding, founder of CaribNOG and Internet Strategist with Packet Clearing House.
Since its establishment in 2010, the community’s unique spirit has made it one of the most highly anticipated events on the regional calendar. For Caribbean uber-geeks, CaribNOG’s twice-yearly meetings make it easily distinguishable from other regional tech conferences.
Major global Internet organizations also look forward to the gatherings because they provide a rare opportunity to meet and socialize with the community of professionals responsible for the Caribbean’s computer networks.
