DDS turns 20! In 2024, we celebrate 20 years of DDS innovation. From its first use case that enabled distributed communications for US Navy ships to the autonomous systems of today, the DDS family of standards has enabled new generations of applications to run reliably, rapidly and securely, regardless of distance or scale.
To commemorate this milestone, the DDS Foundation will be running a year-long celebration to highlight the 14 specifications in the DDS standard, along with selected real-world use cases.
Kicking it off on January 18 is a webinar that starts at the beginning: A discussion with the original Principal Developer of the original Proof of Concept experiments, along with the lead developer of the original DDS standard. Audience Q&A is encouraged.
The audience will gain insights into the development of the original DDS standard, including:
- Why the US Navy needed a distributed communication protocol
- Insights from the original developer of the core technology
- How it became a standard
- And more!
