FOSDEM 2021 – Retrospective

Posted · Add Comment

FOSDEM 2021 has been an awesome event. For the first time in its history, the event was fully virtual with multiple parallel live streams.

According to the infrastructure statistics, it had about 8,000 visitors of which about 5,000 were watching the live streams.

A huge volunteering work has been necessary to make this event happen and ntop is immensely grateful to all those beautiful people who have donated their expertise and time.

We, as ntop, have had the opportunity to present a couple of talks in the Network monitoring, discovery and inventory devroom, namely “Using nDPI for Monitoring and Security” and “ntopng network monitoring and discovery“.

In addition, we have been given a virtual stand (video) and a chatroom to present our opensource-related activities. We have organized a series of activities within our virtual stand, to showcase and demonstrate use cases of our opensource software.

Below you can find all the ntop-related activities we have organized, along with links to video recordings and slides.
