If anyone has anything they'd specifically like covered, leave it in the comments and I'll try to weave it in. (p.s. I'm not entirely sure DevOps is the best track for this, so I could be swayed to another.. )

Should talk about some of the vulnerabilities of DNS like cache poisoning and how this technology's absence/failure can wreak havoc on the modern internet.
