  • 2. 2 SOLID CONFERENCE MAY 21 – 22, 2014 SAN FRANCISCO, CA FOR MORE INFORMATION CONTACT MIKE HENDRICKSON MIKEH@OREILLY.COM 617.499.7463 SOLIDCONF.COM THE BIG IDEA The physical world is about to experience the disruption of the Internet. Software and hardware are blurring together and new ways of manufacturing are emerging. Now you can create products never before imagined, exploit new efficiencies, and build entirely new business models. SIGNALS THAT IT’S CATCHING ON Searches for the common terms that describe this space—Internet of Things, Internet of Everything, Industrial Internet, the Programmable World, Intelligent Things, M2M, Maker-Pro, Generative Things, and Machine-Data—are increasing dramatically, pointing to growing interest in this emerging market. HOW BIG IS THE MARKET? HUGE Opinions on how fast the industry will grow (and even how the industry is defined) vary. Rob Lloyd, Cisco’s president of development and sales, predicts the Internet of Things will be a $14.4 trillion industry within the next decade; IDC predicts a $7.3 trillion market by 2017; and Gartner predicts a $1.9 trillion dollar market by 2020. But all signs point towards phenomenal growth. “The O’Reilly conferences are the gold standard for drawing together a critical mass of thought leaders.” STEVE GILLMOR CRN
  • 3. 3 SOLID CONFERENCE MAY 21 – 22, 2014 SAN FRANCISCO, CA FOR MORE INFORMATION CONTACT MIKE HENDRICKSON MIKEH@OREILLY.COM 617.499.7463 SOLIDCONF.COM The O’Reilly Solid Conference is where engineers, software programmers, researchers, product managers, roboticists, designers, venture capitalists, innovators, and business leaders will gather to explore how the worlds of programming and engineering are colliding—and what opportunities this perfect storm of intelligent things will bring. CORE THEMES & TRACKS The collision of software and hardware is fueling the creation of a software-enhanced, networked physical world. The impact of this phenomenon goes far beyond the development of intelligent new consumer products, exploiting new efficiencies, and creating entirely new business models. Some of the themes that we see as essential: ■■ Manufacturing made frictionless ■■ APIs for the physical world ■■ Software intelligence above the level of a single machine ■■ Every company is a software company ■■ Data-driven things as a service ■■ Designing for the post-screen world Solid will be tackling the full depth and breadth of the disruption. Sessions are organized into 5 main tracks: ■■ Solid Companies: Funding, product development, marketing—everything you need for success, whether your organization is a nimble start-up or a long-established business. ■■ Solid Machines: Design, prototyping, manufacturing, implementation—the entire process of making things real, from idea to manufacturing and shipping. ■■ Solid Society: Cities, health, developing world, economics—how to build products and services which improve our cities, personal health, and the world economy. ■■ Solid Foundations: Materials, synthetic biology, fundamental technologies—all the underlying technologies that compose and power our connected world. ■■ Solid Tools: The protocols, technologies, and techniques necessary to make ideas become reality. “Hardware startups are looking like the software startups of the previous digital age.” JOI ITO DIRECTOR, MIT MEDIA LAB, AND SOLID CONFERENCE CO-CHAIR
  • 4. 4 SOLID CONFERENCE MAY 21 – 22, 2014 SAN FRANCISCO, CA FOR MORE INFORMATION CONTACT MIKE HENDRICKSON MIKEH@OREILLY.COM 617.499.7463 SOLIDCONF.COM WHAT IS SOLID? A new market is emerging at the intersection of hardware and software. Solid is telling the story and convening the players. The Solid Program Committee, led by Program Chairs Joi Ito of MIT Media Lab and Jon Bruner of O’Reilly Radar, have lined up a stellar lineup of the movers, shakers, experts, designers, innovators, investors, and visionaries in this nascent space to provide a clear vision of what the future holds. But Solid will also showcase how to use these technologies today to create new products, go from idea to prototype to market in weeks rather than years; to optimize their operations; to instrument inexpensively; and to bring their products into new markets. This industry requires something more than a typical butts-in-seats, heads-on-stage conference. That’s why Solid isn’t being held at some cookie-cutter conference center. It’s being held on the San Francisco waterfront at Fort Mason. Expect an Expo Hall with some jaw-dropping demos and a crowd of thought leaders, decision makers, and influencers from fields as diverse as manufacturing, supply chain, wearables, robotics, environmental sensing, health monitoring, and 3D printing, who are all looking for the chance to get up close with the tools and technologies they’ll need to chart their future. So it’s also not a cookie-cutter conference exhibiting opportunity. Solid is a great opportunity to break out of your booth and use your imagination. Want to make a really big splash? Solid is the place to do it. WHY O’REILLY? From Web 2.0 to web performance to big data, we have a knack for knowing what’s important now and what will be important next. That’s why the company is followed by venture capitalists, business analysts, news pundits, tech journalists, and thought leaders who don’t want to miss out on the next big thing. In the US, Europe, and Asia, O’Reilly’s Conferences and Summits have forged new ties between industry leaders, raised awareness of technology issues we think are important, and crystallized the critical issues around emerging technologies. We don’t say this to brag. We say it to make a point: we’re not easily hypnotized by hype. We’ve seen the bubbles build and burst. We’ve been tapping into a deep network of alpha geeks and thought leaders to recognize the truly disruptive technologies amidst the fluff for over three decades. So when we invest in a conference, we’re not just following the hype, we’re committed to creating a community around an issue we believe is transformative. We believe the programmable world—by whatever name you want to call it—is hugely transformative. That’s why we‘ve created Solid. “The barriers between software and the physical world are falling.” JON BRUNER SOLID CONFERENCE CO-CHAIR
