Collaborating Across Continents: A Conversation with Barrie Jones Cook + Toni Yannick Kalombo

We recently spoke with Barrie Jones Cook of San Diego, and Toni Yannick Kalombo of Johannesburg, who not only met via the NANOG 80 Virtual Hackathon, but also formed a team there, and continued to collaborate on their project once the hackathon wrapped.
