OARC 37 will be an online/hybrid meeting on February 17th 2022 starting at 16:00 UTC (10:00 CST). The onsite part of the meeting will be held in Austin, Texas.

All DNS-related subjects and suggestions for discussion topics are welcome. For inspiration, we provide a non-exhaustive list of ideas:

  • Operations: Any operational gotchas, lessons learned from an outage, details/reasons for a recent outage (how to improve TTR, tooling).
  • Deployment: Managing DNS changes and propagation, release process, change management.
  • Monitoring: Log ingestion pipeline, analytics infrastructure, anomaly detection.
  • Scaling: Managing service capacity, failovers, disaster recovery.

As it is an online/hybrid workshop, we'd like to encourage brevity; presentations should not be longer than 20 minutes (with additional time for questions).
