Over 110 people attended the APNIC 42 Workshops held last week in Colombo, Sri Lanka, making it the most popular workshop week we’ve had at an APNIC Conference, as well as one of the most interactive.

According to Nurul Islam, APNIC Training Manager, the hands-on exercises, where participants got to use the APNIC training lab, were a highlight for many during the five-day workshops, as were the best practices and experience shared by the trainers.

The three workshops offered were:

  • IPv4/IPv6 Routing with Philip Smith (APNIC), Simon Sohel Baroi (Fibre@Home) and Shaila Sharmin (Link3 Technology)
  • MPLS Deployment with Nurul Islam (APNIC), Anurag Bhatia (Hurricane Electric) and Sumon Ahmed Sabir (Fibre@Home)
  • Network Security with Fakrul Alam (APNIC), Yoshinobu Matsuzaki (IIJ), Jonathan Brewer (NSRC), Champika Wijayatunga (ICANN) and Sheryl Hermoso (APNIC)

“The other trainers and I were encouraged by how keen attendees were to add to the discussion and share their experiences with the group as we worked together to solve a number of common challenges in the industry,” says Nurul.

“This interactivity is a really important part of our trainings as it allows attendees to solve challenges they have with their network and walk away with strategies that they can implement.”

“As always, it was a credit to the trainers to encourage them to participate in the discussion.”

Participants travelled from Australia, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, New Zealand, Pakistan, Samoa, and from around the host country Sri Lanka.

    I’m counting around 64 participants, with about 11 women.

    Good to see the silent P in the Asia Pacific represented by Samoa.

    Headline hint: Hands on a highlight at APNIC. Remember, information is power. Use it effectively.
