Jan is the Internet Society's Operational Engagement Programme Manager. He works on operational initiatives to ease the deployment of IPv6 and other technologies. He is also working to help the industry document best-current operational practices and to improve operator feedback to the IETF.

Elijah B. Hlastan, Fogy Tech 
As a security enthusiast, I am happiest when I can solve riddles in security breaches, whether in my home, school or elsewhere. After finishing computer high school this coming spring, I plan to build a career in cyber security and penetration testing. My end goal is to help protect people from the crimes that occur daily on the deep web. At the moment, my partner and I are in the beginning stages of a start-up product through our new company FOGy.

Žiga Deutschbauer, Fogy Tech
My name is Žiga Deutschbauer and I am a eighteen years old student, coming from Slovenia. I am currently attending High school for electronics and computer science in Velenje. I am in fourth year of a program to become a computer technician.
I was always seen as advanced kid, always one of the smartest in class. I had been an excellent student all my years of schooling. My strongest subjects are math and computer programming. But only attending school has never satisfy my need of wanting to know and to learn more.
I have been competing in math competitions since I remember and in last two years I have also won gold awards. In my free time I am on the computer a lot where I improve my programming knowledge with learning different computer languages and trying to make programs with cmd and linux terminal.
But that is just not enough for me, like I said: I want adventure. Not only it would be an adventure and one of the best experience, but it would also be an opportunity for me to feed my brain with more knowledge which would be an excellent foundation for me to build a career doing things I am passionate about.
