Rails Developers and the Importance of ipv6

Aaron Lee (Rackspace Hosting), Munjal Budhabhatti (ThoughtWorks, Inc.)
Products and Services
Location: Room 345

Tracking ipv6 addresses is a technically challenging problem and is important to the Rails developer community. In this discussion we will discuss, What is ipv4? What killed it? What is ipv6 and how does it rescue the internet? Why is ipv6 important for a rails developer? ipv6 offers better security, but how do you represent ipv6 in network devices, databases (relational and non-relational), frameworks (rails), UI, etc.? In addition to a general discussion on ipv6, we will take you through how Rackspace solved the ipv6 problem.

This session is sponsored by Rackspace
