David Tatlisu is a network engineer from Berlin.
As a digital native, David cannot remember a time without the internet. In his journey from running servers in his parent’s basement to play video games with his classmates to running intercontinental networks as his day job, David’s life has revolved around the Internet.
Davids fascination with the Internet and RIPE in particular began when he was in sixth grade, when he stumbled upon presentation archives and got hooked. He cannot imagine a world without the community of dedicated individuals that helped shape the Internet to what it became today, and tries to support where he can.
David started working in IT in 2018, got his own ASN in 2020, became a full-time network engineer in 2021, and finally attended his first in-person RIPE meeting in 2022.
