Roadshow Update, May 7, 2017

The DARPA SDR Hackfest Roadshow continues this week with four more city stops and at least that many location visits. All of my engagements on this tour are completely open to anyone looking to come and learn more about software radio, the Hackfests, and DARPA itself.

The primary purpose of the Roadshow is to help innovators in the software defined radio space to understand the differences between the open Hacker Space and Speakers series from the team-based Missions, which are all occurring during the week of the DARPA Bay Area Hackfest this coming November at NASA Ames Conference Center in Moffett Field, California. The Missions portion has an application phase that will run from June 1 to July 15, and we’re hosting a teaming workshop at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California, on May 22 to help more people get acquainted with the effort. So the Roadshow is a roving forum with a goal of informing people in different regions about the workshop and how to join in the Hackfest this November. This week’s tour stops in Boulder, San Diego, Austin, and San Jose will be the last of the roadshow before my stop at the Bay Area Maker Faire in May in San Mateo where I’ll be speaking more about the teaming workshop, SDR (software defined radio), and the Hackfest.

Even if you can’t make it to any of these events, you still can keep track of the overall DARPA SDR Hackfest status and activities, and learn how to join the big November finale at NASA Ames, by checking in to this web site.
