Join us for the first in a series of Home Networking expos. Overall, the series of expos reflects our belief that more and more software applications, and more and more significant products and industries, are going to be located within the home, or interact with people who are at home. By itself, this belief is nothing new-- there are currently quite a few products matching this description. From the software that manages home alarm systems to the latest video game consoles, individual products are already here or on the horizon. But, the change that is coming is monumental. When the typical home is fully wired, fully networked, and all these appliances are talking to
each other, the world changes. It's incremental ("Oh. I can use my Playstation to manage my MP3 lists") but it's astounding. Part of the change will also be a different computing environment for technologists. The computing and network infrastructure will be different than what many programmers are used to. The software, and programming techniques will be different. The ways we deploy software, the ways purchasing decisions are made, and the ways people interact with the software, will be different.
This first expo on April 29, 2003, will provide insight to the following areas:
- What's currently out there?
- What's the state of the industry and where’s it going?
- How do I leverage my knowledge and skill-sets to enter the space?
