*ISC invites all local BIND administrators, system architects, and
anyone interested in DNS to attend our next BIND Open Day on Friday,
January 13, 2012. This is your opportunity to meet, interact, and build
a relationship with many of ISC's engineers who have been coding DNS,
crafting the standards, and pushing the technology of the world's most
deployed DNS software. Interactive dialog is a core theme for all ISC

We seek BIND operators to share their architecture, experiences, and
requirements for the future. The day will have a range of "geek to geek"
opportunities with ISC's engineers -- building the operational
understanding relevant BIND functionality.

The January BIND Open Day will focus on the future of BIND and seeking
guidance to insure operational relevance.

* The whole BIND 10 development community will be attending (ISC and
their partners).

* The day will start with a segue from BIND 9 to BIND 10 - reviewing all
the engineering design principles, approaches, quality methodology, and
open source access between the two versions.

* You'll hear how the BIND Team uses Agile Scrum, and Test Driven
Development (TDD) to achieve code quality and visible development goals.

* We'll walk through the architecture and technology used in BIND 10's

* You'll learn how your input can shape BIND 10 today, providing
operational "user stories" that would be used to enhance BIND's progress.
