The World Between Analogue and Digital

Join us for an informative and entertaining evening where we will cover the world that lies between Analogue and digital – the hybrid world. Guest speaker Fadi T. Hayek from Solid State Logic will lead a discussion where we cover the history and technologies that have lead to the resurgence of Analog hardware and its current marriage with digital technology.
