Ensoft Lecture - Silicon Swords to Software Ploughshares ...

Date: Tuesday Week 6 - 18 November 2014 Time: 01:00 PMPlace: Lecture Theatre A - Dept. of Computer ScienceTags: Ensoft

Speaker: Simon Chatterjee (Ensoft Ltd.)

...: the software networking revolution

Abstract: The high-end networking that makes the Internet has historically depended on extremely exotic and expensive custom hardware.

But that is starting to change, and pure software-based networking is starting to become a meaningful part of both the Internet and massive data centers, opening up these walled gardens to anyone who can write code. This talk is an accessible introduction into why, and some interesting problems that have to be solved to enable software to connect the world.

Bio: The presenter is Director & CTO of Ensoft, whose experience includes helping to bring into existence the Guinness Book of Records' "World's Highest Capacity Internet Router".

Free food and drink will also be provided.

About Learn to Code

During these events, there will be a mixture of interactive workshops and talks. We will be teaching you the basics of programming using Python. These events are good if you have zero coding experience, but they are also valuable if you already have started coding and would like to better your skills. We also welcome people who already have good coding experience as the more volunteers the better!
