NetDev the Linux Networking event

In every edition of Netdev Conf we ask to ourselves: Where is the future of linux networking going? What are the new challenges to do more with less? Where is the bottleneck?

Well, in the upcoming Netdev Conf 2.1 edition we’re going to face new technical challenges that the gurus have been researching during the last 6 months, highlighting the interested topics about Cloud and Data Center Infrastructure, IoT research, DDos and security concerns, among other classics topics like Network optimization and performance, Network analysis, HW offload and workshops about TC, netfilter and connection tracking.

Please attend to these talks if you are you interested in…?
