The Colorado Chapter of the Internet Society (CO ISOC) recently held an event aimed at giving local IT and networking folks an introduction to IPv6.

IPv6: What is it, why do I need it, and how do I get it?

As IPv6 adoption is ramping up around the world in service and content provider networks, many enterprises run the risk of falling behind. Our goal with this event was to help mitigate that risk by providing practical IPv6 knowledge that could be put to work deploying IPv6 the following day. The event consisted of a keynote by Scott Hogg, followed by an open discussion between our panel of experts and the audience. The panel included Scott Hogg, Jeff Doyle, Cricket Liu, Shannon McFarland (via video feed from VMWorld 2012), and myself.

We believe that this event was able to give the folks in attendance a pragmatic introductory lesson on IPv6 and a chance to get their early questions answered. We had nearly 50 people in the room and another 50+ attend remotely via the live stream. Lucky for you we also recorded the event so you can view and share it to your hearts content:
