A multicore webinar with a difference

By Colin Walls

We were pleased with the recent success of a webinar where we looked at an important aspect of multicore software design: the choice between using a hypervisor and a multicore framework. Part of the success of such events is the opportunity to interact with embedded developers in the Q&A session at the end. This inspired us to come up with an idea. We asked ourselves “How would it be if we had a webinar that was almost entirely a Q&A session?” This is not something we have tried before, so we thought that we would give it a go.

The webinar is on Wednesday 14 October and there will be 2 sessions with timing aimed at Europe and North America respectively. A recording of each will be available soon after the live sessions. There will be just a few minutes introduction, then straight into the Q&A, when I will be joined by my colleague Jeff Hancock. Here are the details:
