OUR 2017 SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

Jan 24th, 2017, 18:00 hrs – Content Delivery Networks (CDN) - Speaker: Adam Galloway LinkDownloads
CDNs (Content Delivery Networks) are incredibly useful networks of distributed servers which aim to provide high-availability, low-latency access to static content from any geographical location.  The addition of an Internet Exchange in Liverpool could mean the possibility of a Content Delivery server, which would reduce latency of static content serving for local residents. Meetup
March 23rd, 2017, 18:00 hrs – Internet Privacy: How Countries Censor the Internet and Activists Fight Back - a talk by Paul Furley.LinkDownloads
I started out studying Digital Electronics. I’ve been working as a developer for about seven years, mostly in small teams doing new stuff like startups, alphas and new products. I currently work part time for Co-op digital and a privacy & security agency called IF. I’ve been using exclusively GNU/Linux since 2001, I dabble in a bit of crypto, run a Tor node, and support the Internet Freedom movement. I’m particularly interested in making powerful technology like crypto useable and seamless for ordinary people.  In this talk, I’ll be reporting on some of the highlights of the Internet Freedom Festival in Valencia. Meetup
May 10th, 2017, 19:00 hrs – Internet of Everything : Connecting the Unconnected - By Prof. Matt Wilson LinkDownloads
The Internet of Things and the Internet of Everything (people, processes, data and things) is now about connecting the unconnected.  We tend to think of the Internet being everywhere but a staggering 99.8% of the world is still unconnected. As a joint IX Liverpool and Sensor City event, Prof. Matt Wilson from Telecoms Cloud presents a range of new opportunities to connect the unconnected while creating value by improving operational efficiency and improving customer experiences for businesses. Meetup
May 25th, 2017, 18:00 hrs –Dealing with a Media Crisis in the Digital Age - by Mick Ord LinkDownloads
From small businesses to large organisations reputation is key to any organisation, and getting it right, online and offline,  can be a tricky business, even when things are going well – no matter how experienced you and your management team are.   During a crisis, many people put their head in the sand, give out the wrong messages or put inexperienced staff or management in front of the media, all without fully understanding the implications and potential long term damage to their organisation.  We’ve asked former senior BBC editor and journalist Mick Ord, who has been working at the sharp end of broadcasting for over 30 years, to share with us his valuable stories and insights gained from his many years’ experience in the media industry. Meetup

So what is all this hype about the Internet of Things? It is really the next phase of the Internet, will it really transform our lives, is it really worth £322 billion to the UK Economy by 2020? For the more seasoned of us, are we at the peak of IOT gimmicky products and hype? Has the bubble now burst and will application after application become viable and then valuable? Join us on the 27th July for a joint IX Liverpool and Sensor City event, presented by Prof. Matt Wilson from Telecoms Cloud and you’ll discover how the Internet of Things could affect society, the workplace and your home, and learn what (if any) opportunities could arise out of it.Meetup
