DadLAN December 2023 - DadLAN

DadLAN December 2023

DadLAN December was a huge success.


  • 18 in-person, with 6 remote via DadWAN (including New Zealand!)
  • Amazing venue thanks to WORKSHOP | BY POMT – flexible seating, superb internet, and awesome AV integration all around us
  • DadWAN – our Wireguard solution – worked flawlessly. David Pirogov even wrote a Wireguard management solution and Discord bot to facilitate self-service config provisioning
  • We had 12 laptops and a gigabit switch donated to support this DadLAN and future subnets
  • There are over 200 in our Discord channel now (Facebook ads really work!)
  • There’s some some great wide-ranging topics being discussed in the Discord, from nerd talk, to dad talk, to music, etc

Coming up:

  • Central Coast is spinning up in January
  • Melbourne is spinning up in Feburary

DadLAN is a social mental health initiative to bring together Dads to play games and chat. If you have a facility to host us, please reach out.

Join us at and see you at the January event!
