For this year’s #Ripe76 several hundred people met in beautiful Marseille, the second largest city in France. The meeting took place at the Palais du Pharo Convention Centre of Marseille from 14-18 May 2018. Despite the air traffic control strikes over the weekend, everyone made it in (albeit delayed). One of the first highlights we noticed was the amazing cheese selection. Yes, cheese. Everywhere we looked there were delectable cheeses. The fantastic cheese element was hard to ignore, but then again- why would we?

Not only was the fromage outstanding, so was the breathtaking venue, but more importantly, we enjoyed the talks and break out groups. But above all we were impressed with the on-site childcare that was available all week. The Women in Technology (WIT) luncheon was also another highlight. The WIT lunch discussion talked about the power of mentoring and helped everyone to better understand one another’s different viewpoints and perspectives.
One of our discussions was about the new internet from a different perspective by Jordi Palet Martinez: A New Internet Intro to HTTP/2, QUIC, DOH and DNS over QUIC.
