Our codeMeetUp #103 with Prof. Budi Rahardjo 😉 Lots of preparation (like always 😀 )
Should we read it “A Rock Star and History of Silicon Valley”? 😀
Pak BR brought some books about Silicon Valley to be circulated among the audience
The story started from the difference between West and East Coast
Frederick Terman is the father of Silicon Valley
William Shockley, who invented transistor
Story about Traitorous Eight, those hired by Shockley and then later left him and founded Fairchild Semiconductor
Lucky breaks for Fairchild Semiconductor
And then came the birth of Intel
A brilliant and interesting visualization of the creation of Silicon Valley
The MOST interesting thing, though: the hierarchy of great people, from William Shockley to Prof. Samaun Samadikun to Prof. Budi Rahardjo 😉 Prof. Samaun was Shockley’s student, and Prof. BR was Prof. Samaun’s student. So all Prof. BR’s student and the audience yesterday have a close relation with the inventor of transistor! How cool is that! 😀
Story about Hawlett and Packard, who gave birth to Silicon Valley
Their first office has this Birthplace of Silicon Valley Monument
So what are the values of Silicon Valley?
Can we make Silicon Valley here in Indonesia? In Bandung?
Bandung has all that science, tech and creative communities
Not on only us trying to copy Silicon Valley, the whole world has been trying to but never succeeded because Silicon Valley is not just a place. It is a state of mind.
The map of Silicon Valley from time to time
Facts about resources in several countries
