The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), founded in 1986, is the premiere standards development organization (SDO) for the Internet. The IETF makes voluntary standards that are often adopted by Internet users, network operators, and equipment vendors, and it thus helps shape the trajectory of the development of the Internet. But in no way does the IETF control, or even patrol, the Internet.
The IETF Hackathon and IETF Codesprint will take place on the weekend.
AARNet is proud to be a sponsor for IETF 119 Brisbane.
