Apart from theoretical basics we will cover hands-on configuration of recursive, as well as authoritative BIND, Debugging, Monitoring, CDS/CDNSKEY and DANE.

As of now, we are planning four workshops in Vienna, Linz and Dornbirn. The Linz workshop will be accompanied by a DNS Workshop. Further sessions can be arranged as required.  Details
