The revolution starts here: hardware, software, digital manufacturing, and the IoT

Solid is returning to Fort Mason on June 23–25, 2015.

The traditional boundaries between hardware and software are falling. Whatever you choose to call this disruption—the Internet of Things, digital manufacturing, the connected world, the Industrial Internet, Maker Pro, hardware startups, or the integration of software and machines—it’s the same exciting revolution: a perfect storm of opportunity for a software-enhanced, networked physical world.

The new products and services created from the melding of software, hardware, and data are built by people who work across disciplines and industries. A vibrant new community is emerging, made up of business and industry leaders, software developers, hardware engineers, designers, investors, startup founders, academics, artists, and policy makers—many of whom have never come together before.

They gather at Solid to be inspired, to make connections and launch conversations, and to plug into the future for a few days.

Will you be a part of it?
