On May 16 - 17, 2018, we held our fifth Connext Conference in Boston. Thank you to all the users, developers and industry influencers who attended this event! We were excited to see some old friends and meet some new first-time attendees.

For those of us at RTI, we learn so much from talking to our customers face-to-face. The Connext Conference provides a chance to hear about our customers’ use cases and how they apply Connext DDS to solve the industry-specific challenges they face. It’s also an opportunity to gather feedback to improve our products and services.

On the other hand, our users tell us that the Connext Conference provides a chance to learn from other developers and to hear how our technology is used across a wide range of applications. This conference was filled with dynamic discussions, deep technical dives and invaluable sharing of developer experiences in building real-world IIoT systems. We appreciate your participation.

If you joined us at the Boston Connext Conference, we’d love to hear your feedback. Take the post-conference survey.

If you were unable to attend the conference, review some of the presentations you missed.
