Gandi Events May 2016
Here’s a look at upcoming, ongoing and past events at Gandi.
The Root Zone.
Last month, Gandi and Cloudflare presented the first in our joint series The Root Zone. (yes, the dot IS important). In this series, we are talking with some of the great names in DNS.
A big thank you, first of all, goes out to Paul Mockapetris for being our first guest as well as another thank you to Cloudflare for teaming up with us on this series, including providing space for hosting last time.
If you missed it, don’t fret, we have two pieces of good news for you. The talk is available on YouTube, courtesy of Cloudflare:
En plus, you can come to this month’s meetup, which will feature Dan Kaminsky!. Those of you unfamiliar with Dan, he discovered his namesake vulnerability in DNS: the Kaminsky Vulnerability.
The Kaminsky Vulnerability allowed attackers to perform cache poisoning. Essentially, a bad actor could respond to a legitimate DNS query and it would look like an authoritative answer and then propagate to all child DNS servers using the same cache, until the TTL was up.
Ask all your questions and find out more by coming to this month’s The Root Zone., hosted in our San Francisco offices this month on Tuesday, May 10, 2016 at 6:00 PM PDT.
Keep an eye on the meetup page for more information and updates.
UX Speed Dating: User Testing Night
The third Wednesday of each month, Gandi hosts UX Speed Dating, a meetup for user-experience enthusiasts, whether currently committed to a development cycle or not, can have a fling with another user experience. And by that we mean test it and provide feedback.
Check out the specific rules and see the Meetup page or the UX Speed dating site for details.
Bay Area Maker Faire
Gandi will be at Maker Faire this month. We won’t have a booth but we will be wandering the floor of Maker Faire in San Mateo May 20.
If you’re not familiar with Maker Faire, you’re probably wondering: what’s Maker Faire and what makes a maker? Makers are tinkerers, engineers, artists, teachers, crafters, writers, students and more all focused on, well, making things. It’s DIY on all levels. A Maker Faire is a showcase of everything that all these various types of people have made and learned.
This is a movement we really feel we can get behind. We try to provide our products as a platform for this kind of tinkering, so we’re excited to be attending this year. We’ll be around on Friday (tweet @gandibar if you’re interested in meeting up), but otherwise, the Faire goes on all weekend, so stop by if you get a chance. And who knows, maybe next year Gandi will have a bigger role to play …
