SomNOG Workshop and Conferences
This is an annual 5-day event to be held in August of each year.
These are training events that precede the main event, and will continue for the first 2 years of SomNOG workshops. The purpose of these trainings is to complete any prerequisite training for the more advanced trainings.
These are specialized training for trainer events that focus not only on the specific subject matters but also to share experiences and techniques for organizing and delivering trainings effectively.
Besides the training events and conferences, SomNOG engages in operating mailing lists and forums to facilitate the exchange of experiences among the networking professionals and the Somali Internet community members, as well as building a networking technology knowledgebase and publications.
