Réseaux IP Européens or more familiarly RIPE is an independent, not-for-profit community of people working in the Internet industry. They usually hold meetings twice a year and RIPE 80 was planned to take place in Berlin, hosted by DE-CIX, but due to the current situation, the event went online for the first time.
Over three days of online meetings and working groups covering a variety of topics, such as anti-abuse, IPv6, and IoT, the event had around 2,000 registered participants daily. On the last day, a whopping 2,002 attendees registered and there were 1,148 unique viewers (691 via Zoom/457 via webstream). Our very own Wolfgang Tremmel, who is part of the RIPE Programme Committee, also chaired a session.
