Rather than reach for the clouds with our next topic, we thought we would dive deep!

We are very excited to announce that our next meetup will be all about undersea cables, the history of the subsea industry, and how natural disasters can impact this cabling. With over 750,000 miles of cable connecting the continents (thank you New York Times!) it seemed only natural that our next meetup addressed such an important topic.

We will be hosting Mike Sauer, VP of Aqua Comms, and Matt Sinno, Senior Solutions Architect at Telstra. We hope to see you there!
