If you are attending the 59th meeting of the North American Network Operators Group (NANOG) in Phoenix, Arizona, please do say hello to Chris Grundemann, our new director of Deployment & Operationalization (DO), under which the Deploy360 Programme sits.
Chris is of course no stranger to NANOG as he has been very involved with setting up the regional “Best Current Operational Practices (BCOP)” efforts happening within NANOG.
In fact he will be speaking on a panel about BCOP from 4:30 – 6:00 pm MST TODAY. [1 – see note below about timezone] Chris will now be able to speak not only about the BCOP work within NANOG but also the broader picture of how we are intending to help encourage more BCOP creation and sharing around the world.
A livestream of NANOG59 is available at:
The full agenda can be found on the NANOG website. Beyond his BCOP presentation, Chris will be around the NANOG event meeting with people in his new role. If you are interested in reaching Chris, you can email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
 Arizona does not use Daylight Savings Time and so Phoenix has remained on “Mountain Standard Time” (MST) which is UTC-7 and the same as US Pacific Daylight Time (PDT). So you can think of it as being the same time as it is in California and the rest of the US west coast.
