NS1 Heads To Velocity San Jose 2018

June is here, which means only one thing for us here at NS1 - it’s Velocity time once again! For this well-traveled tech evangelist, sitting a few stories above San Francisco’s Financial District in our west coast outpost, I can’t help feeling a bit excited for what’s to come this week. Not only will we be showing off the latest and greatest next-generation DNS solutions, but we have four different talks from our team during the event that you won’t want to miss. More on that in a moment!

If you completely spaced on signing up for the conference, it may actually have worked in your favor - we’ve got a discount code for you! Use the code NS125 when registering to save 25% off regular priced admission.

The Velocity conference is happening at the San Jose Conference Center, 150 W San Carlos St., San Jose, CA 95113. For more information, see the official page.

At Booth #608, you’ll have ample opportunity to chat with the NS1 team, and check out some live demonstrations of our offerings.

If your DNS skills aren’t where you’d like them to be, I’ll also be showing off NS1.Academy - our industry certification track around the fundamentals of the domain name system.
