Speaker

Mr Ben Cartwright-Cox (bgp.tools)

Description

Since 2018 I've been running bgp.tools. A site that displays real-time internet routing information for debugging or investigations.

Building this site is a classic case of "oh I can do that in a weekend"... and that not turning out to be the case.

Learn why it's taken me a handful of years to get right! Why you might want to write your own BGP daemon, why I've gotten creative with data sources, why the internet is actually a giant man made art project, and finally why you should help bgp.tools by giving it more data sources!

Talk Duration 25 Minutes Presentation (+5 Minutes Q&A)
