*Internet.org*

Internet.org <https://internet.org/> is a Facebook-led initiative bringing
together technology leaders, nonprofits and local communities to connect
the two thirds of the world that doesn’t have internet access. Internet.org
is using a variety of technologies and strategies to accomplish this.
Software Engineer Andrew Janssen will present internet.org: its history,
why we're building it, and how it works.

Andrew earned a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from University of
Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 2005, but has been freelancing since high
school. His varied career experience includes: computer graphics for
Electronic Arts, educational software for the US Army, mentoring Ruby on
Rails students, launching a Bitcoin marketplace, and building video
delivery software for Disney Interactive. Today Andrew is a software
engineer in internet.org. He is passionate about empowering the world’s
poor and anyone who works for a more empowering future!

Join us on *Oct 19 @ 6 PM in Emerson 105* to hear from Andrew.
Food & Drinks will be provided!
