IPv6 is never gonna’ happen, right?  For good or ill, that's not true. But you should care, and you’ll be glad you attended this all-so-informative seminar, even if you think you’ll never, ever, ever use IPv6!

Assuming our current demand rate for new IPv4 addresses, we will exhaust every last one by December of 2013.  That's right... by New Year’s, 2014, our world runs out of IPv4 addresses.

That’s why TechMentor is bringing together the A-Team, the “big guns”, the uber-gurus themselves, Cisco deity Todd Lammle and veteran Windows-explainer Mark Minasi in a never-before-seen tag-team event. In it, you’ll get a light-hearted look at the latest version of IPv6, and whether you’ll want to leave it on or turn it off. In this whirlwind tour, Todd and Mark explain the motivation for IPv6 and the technologies behind its implementation (which saves you from having to read 30 RFCs – you’re welcome!), while adding useful notes on the Microsoft-specific aspects of Windows' IPv6 implementation.  IPv6 offers many more pluses than minuses, so attend this session, give it a look, and they’ll promise you’ll have a good laugh while you’re at it!
