cjdns author among presenters, open-mesh.com to sponsor event
SlashRoot will host engineers and developers from amatuer to expert at a summit on the subject of “mesh” networking this Saturday, March 31.
“Mesh” is a style of computer networking that uses a series of small devices, called “nodes,” to pass information through local areas. It is sometimes referred to as “neighbor-to-neighbor style” networking. Some prominent network engineers have suggested that it may soon drive much of the infrastructure of the Internet.
“Although mesh is very new in terms of mainstream attention, the technology and techniques are fairly well tested - we’re going to be ready to deploy in New Paltz by the fall,” said Justin Holmes, SlashRoot’s founder. “As such, we’re obviously overjoyed to bring internationally known experts to New Paltz to convene on the future of this technology.”
Among the attendees registered for the summit is 24-year old Caleb James Delisle, a Massachusets engineer and author of cjdns, a popular and quickly-growing routing software. “If you were going to make a short list of the rising stars in network programming today, I think you’d have to include Caleb,” said Holmes. Delisle’s software was recently selected by “darknetplan,” a reddit-based group of 25,000 mesh enthusiasts, as their software of choice. Delisle will be entertain a one-hour internet-broadcast interview by Holmes at 1:00PM.
The event is sponsored by open-mesh.com, which bills itself as a provider of “ultra low-cost, zero config, plug and play wireless mesh networks.” Open-mesh will provide the networking gear for the event as well as coupons for registered attendees.
