From Fakes to Domains, from Development to Encyclopedias: Practical Knowledge at the Youth RIGF

Editorial Board of the Center for Global IT Cooperation

The new technological Russian Internet encyclopedia, RUWIKI, told about its project and also made a small excursion into the history of the klondike of human knowledge, which has turned from a collection of printed folios into a modern library of Internet pages, where you can learn about everything in the world. 


"We are very pleased to partner with the IV Youth Digital Forum because its mission aligns as closely as possible with our values and objectives. Quality in-depth and reliable knowledge is the main currency of the new age. We are also extremely interested in communicating with students and young professionals - participants of the Forum. Each of them can contribute to filling the new Russian Internet encyclopedia with materials from the world of technology. That is why we invited everyone to our master class, where we talked about all the features of encyclopedic work in the XXI century" - Vladimir Medeyko, General Director of the new Internet encyclopedia, RUWIKI, says.

A rather important topic - countering disinformation - was addressed in their master class by experts from "Dialogue" ANO. Using real examples of fraudulent actions not only in everyday life, but also in emergency situations, the participants were told how not to fall for their tricks and where to go if a person does become a victim of intruders. They were also explained how fakes change with the development of technology and why deception is often believed more than the truth. 

National video hosting, RUTUBE, decided to dive into more technical aspects of the Forum theme and decided to talk about how to develop a modern software product. Young people learned what a software product is, what DevOps does and how continuous integration and deployment methodology is related to all this and why it allows a company to go to the next level by improving production processes. 

"National video hosting, RUTUBE, has joined the list of partners of the Forum, as it sees the need for information education of young IT-specialists - they are the future of this sphere. Many companies right now need a fresh look at many processes, including our video hosting. We are actively developing to make the site more convenient for users", - Irina Dorokhina, Marketing Communications Director of RUTUBE, said.


It is worth recalling that the Forum is the first major event within the framework of celebrating the 30th anniversary of Runet. In honor of this significant date, the .RU/.RF Coordination Center held a separate master class dedicated to the "battle for domains" in the Russian segment of the Internet. The participants discussed how to choose the right domain name for commercial purposes and what to do if the desired domain turns out to be occupied or coincides with an existing trademark.
