Save the date: Solid returns to San Francisco April 20-22, 2016.

The new hardware movement and the Internet of Things are poised to transform the world we live in.

The barriers between virtual and real are falling. Hardware is becoming an agile discipline, and it's getting easier to create physical products. The Internet of Things promises to make everything intelligent and networked. At Solid you'll meet the new interdisciplinary community that's seizing these opportunities—executives, designers, engineers, entrepreneurs, researchers, and investors. Solid is the central meeting place for the new hardware movement and the Internet of Things.

Internet of Things isn’t the same as the new hardware movement

The technology we talk about at Solid is revolutionary, and so is the program itself. It's the only conference that goes beyond the Internet of Things and additionally covers the new hardware movement—the even bigger shift that's driving the IoT and much more.

The revolution starts here: hardware, software, digital manufacturing, and the Internet of Things

  • Entrepreneurs and business leaders: invent entirely new business models, platforms, and workflows
  • Designers, engineers & programmers: make more beautiful and intuitive products
  • Manufacturers: learn how connected technologies will revolutionize manufacturing
  • Startups: build strategic relationships with manufacturers and designers
  • Investors and executives: see innovative work in the Solid Startup Showcase

We’re at the brink of a huge shift. If you want to understand the territory and discover the opportunities, don’t miss the O’Reilly Solid Conference, June 23-25 at Fort Mason in San Francisco. Whether you deal in fashion or manufacturing, robotics or agriculture, Solid will help you figure out how to apply the latest technologies to your business:

The possibilities are more than a bit mind-blowing.

—JA Ginsburg

Solid showed me not only that I can build what I've dreamed about, but the time is now.
