What an event(ful week)!

We hope you had a chance to be one of the people from all over the world who joined us on 26 June to celebrate 25 years of interconnection. The DE-CIX Virtual Anniversary Show took us on an interactive journey around the world, exploring the history and the future of the Internet, and featuring interviews with customers, partners, and employees, as well as a collection of DE-CIX socks.

25 years of DE-CIX: What a show

One of the highlights of the show was a message from Vint Cerf, one of the fathers of the Internet.  People also shared their favourite gadgets from the past on Twitter and danced the night away with our DJ playing songs from the past.

If you missed the show, get yourself a cocktail and watch the video. You can also still join the fun on Twitter by using the hashtag #DECIX25 and sharing pictures of your old gadgets and your vision for the future of the Internet.

TechMeeting 2020 online edition

We also held our annual TechMeeting last week. We had two separate sessions and had over 200 participants joining us over two days. Topics ranged from our new customer portal and BGP to cloud and impact of Covid-19 on running networks.

If you missed the meeting, or parts of it, you can watch the recorded sessions to see the presentations from the DE-CIX community of interconnection professionals.

The celebrations continue

The show might be over but the celebration of the past, the present, and the future of the Internet continues on our anniversary website.

Thank you to everyone who joined our events last week! It would not have been the same without you. We do hope you enjoyed yourself and found the TechMeeting insightful.
