“This was my first time attending a SHARKFEST conference after discovering Wireshark last year. I approached the conference with confidence from reviewing previous sessions hosted online, but was taken aback by the warmth, accessibility, and collaborative nature of the Wireshark packet capturing community. A memorable part of the conference was the after-hours collaboration with Wireshark experts – when we shared stories of how we used the open source packet capture tool to solve problems on our respective networks. Since returning from SHARKFEST, I tripled the contents of my troubleshooting toolbox, and have already used newly learned skills and analysis techniques to improve the network at Mendel Biotechnology. ”–Kayla Smith, network engineer, Mendel Biotechnology, Inc.
