Network with the best

At FLIGHT Boston 2019, Synopsys will bring together leading experts from around the world to help take your software security/development practice to new heights. You’ll hear how leaders and pioneers are overcoming challenges and making a difference for their organizations. And you’ll meet forward-thinking experts from across all industries at our welcome reception, networking breaks, panel discussions, and FLIGHT party.

This year we have an exciting closing keynote speaker: author Daniel H. Wilson. Wilson is known for his New York Times best-selling book “Robopocalypse,” its sequel “Robogenesis,” and many other sci-fi novels. Most recently, he has been working on an authorized stand-alone sequel to Michael Crichton’s “The Andromeda Strain,” titled “The Andromeda Evolution.” Wilson’s talk at FLIGHT Boston will be followed by a book signing of “Robopocalypse.”
