Thought Leadership

Design WEST

By Colin Walls

This week I am at Design WEST in San Jose, California. This is an annual pilgrimage for me – even though I still think of it as being the Embedded Systems Conference.

This year I am participating in the conference in two events:

First, I have a class titled “How to Measure RTOS Performance“, which takes place on Thursday at 09:15. If you would like a copy of the slides, please email me.

I was also asked to participate in a session being run by Clive Maxfield titled “10 Computer Languages in 45 minutes“. The idea is compare and contrast a whole bunch of programming languages and HDLs. I will be talking about C++.

For most of the show hours I will be on the Mentor Graphics booth – #1908. If you are attending, do stop by and say hi.
