In the simplest sense, NetLdn is about spending a bit of time each month, socialising with your fellow Networking professionals.
NetLdn was founded following the success of NetMcr. Similar to the Manchester organisors, we noticed a void in London’s techni-social calendar. Whilst the majority of ‘meetings’ in London focus on development, NetLdn focuses specifically on Network Engineers, Architects, Technicians, or perhaps just anyone interested in the profession.
These MeetUps aren't for recruitment or hiring, they aren't for buying or selling products, or promotional activities. This is a purely social event for likeminded technical people, where you are free and safe to talk openly. Everyone is welcome to attend and enjoy. Please note that we have a Respect Policy in our website ( https://netldn.uk/respect-policy/ ).
NetLdn3 is scheduled for Thursday the 13th of June 2019 at 18:30, with talks beginning at 19:00. Please arrive at least 15 minutes early if you can to get a drink and a seat ready for the first talk.

Talk 1: Anycast DNS in the Cloud
The basics of the Infrastructure that runs DNS for .uk (and 35 other TLDs) and then more depth on how we expanded that infrastructure into the cloud to provide a wider coverage.
Presenter: Brett Carr (Nominet)
Talk 2: Balancing on the Edge: Transport Affinity without Network State
This talk presents Faild, a distributed load balancer which runs on commodity hardware and achieves graceful failover without relying on network state, providing a cost-effective and scalable alternative to existing proposals.
