The IETF community met face-to-face for their 97th meeting in the bustling city of Seoul, South Korea. In this issue of the IETF Journal we provide a snapshot of some of the proceedings that made this another great meeting.
Our cover article is a manifesto of why Internet-enabled businesses should care about the open standards and open source communities. We present the first two of a series of interviews with IETF leadership, in this case outgoing IETF chair Jari Arkko and his successor Alissa Cooper.
Also in this issue, you’ll learn about CodeStand, a new initiative that matches developers with coding projects related to IETF activity.
We have several Working Group and BoF updates, a summary of the pre-IETF Hackathon, and an article about the Internet Society briefing panel on the topic: The I in IoT: Implications for a Global Open Internet.
