Software Development Forum (SDForum) presents:
A discussion of the 'One Laptop per Child Project'
Wednesday, April 11, 7:00pm-9:00pm, Palo Alto
One Laptop per Child (OLPC) project is a non-profit organization aiming to
redefine learning and education for the world's children, by providing
each child with a specially developed, innovative, and low-cost laptop.
The speaker, Ivan Krstic, will introduce the background, motivation, and
goals of the initiative, as well as the engineering and educational
challenges it faces. Designed to be small and light, yet this laptop
("XO") is rugged enough to withstand harsh environments and the power it
consumes is less than a tenth of standard laptops. Ivan Krstic is a
software architect and researcher currently on leave from Harvard
University. He is the director of security and information architecture at
the One Laptop per Child project. See www.sdforum.org for details.
