The 3rd Bangladesh Operators Group, bdNOG3 conference and workshop took place from May 18-23 at the BRAC Centre Inn in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Jon Brewer, NSRC Collaborator, co-taught a workshop on Linux System Administration and Network Monitoring and Management as well as providing assistance during the bdNOG3 tutorial day.
This was a four-day workshop to train network engineers to train other engineers by teaching: Teaching pedagogy and methodology, including lesson planning, presentation strategies and practice in front of the class. How to use customized virtualization training solutions developed by the Network Startup Resource Center (NSRC). Several DNS Operations and DNSSEC class offerings including full access to materials to be used as needed. Work will be hands-on and interactive with teachers as well as peers. Workshop Goals: Help the DNS community create training teams and labs and establish training curricula; Train / apprentice a group of community members to provide training at ICANN and NSRC levels; Exercise hands-on training curricula combined with campus network assistance producing trained local university and REN staff; and Facilitate cooperation with DNS organizations, regional meetings, and events in the Middle East and Africa to hold DNS Operation and DNSSEC trainings.
