IPv6 and the enterprise scripter

The last public IPv4 addresses were allocated by the RIPE-NCC on the 25th Nov 2019. This is certain to speed up (or rekindle) discussion in many organizations about moving into the IPv6 address space. Are you prepared for this?
Maybe you Like to think that the ensuing changes mostly affect netwoking people. Well, think again. The move to IPv6 changes many of the infrastructure management paradigms, and so your scripting practice probably will have to change as well - starting with validation routines and all the way to having to support 4-to-6 transition technologies.

After this session, you'll know what parts of your scripts, modules and environments to look at in regard to IPv6, where the pitfalls lie and what you can do about it.
