The growing availability of gigabit fiber networks has prompted many of the world's best technical minds to ask, "Just what can you do with a gig?" While an incredible technological advance in its own right, gigabit internet is just infrastructure. A piece of the foundation on which the real advances that will change lives and create the future are going to be built.
A community exploring next generation network enabled applications
The sponsors and organizers of 1 Billion Bits want to help answer those questions and raise new ones by putting engineers, researchers, and enthusiasts interested in Gigabit Internet & Applications in the same room. 1 Billion Bits is that room. Where on the fourth Wednesday of every odd numbered month CTO's, inventors, engineers, and developers working to create the future can come out to share what they're working on. We are building the local community around the exploration of topics driving next generation network enabled applications. Every month we dig into the Evolution of the Network, Software Frameworks and Approaches, the Proliferation of Computing Algorithms, or Applications (ideally involving as many of the previous topics as possible). By connecting with the individuals beyond the local community who are also doing innovative work, we ensure the richest perspective possible for our discussion.
If you're interested in participating or sharing your advanced gigabit enabled application, supporting the development of these technologies, or just learning what kind of exciting things are being created in your own backyard, check out our upcoming events or connect with us online. We also archive our past events for wider impact and to help give people an idea of what to expect.
