Our Compact 7 launch event at Microsoft Campus on Tuesday was very well attended, with most of the 80+ registered delegates arriving eventually despite a local traffic meltdown. Following Lorraine Bardeen’s inspiring keynote, excellent sessions from ARM, Freescale, TI, UICentric and Captec were alternated with Compact 7 sessions from Direct Insight.
TI brought along a RemoteFX demo, Freescale showed their new, tiny, i.MX53 Quick Start board, and Direct Insight showed i.MX51 and DM3730 modules, the latter running a UICentric medical device demo.
Dr Tony Hedge of Benthic Sciences was the lucky winner of the HTC Trophy 7 phone.
Feedback was very positive, and we hope to hold follow-up single-topic events, as well as the hands-on training announced on the day. Delegates will be receiving a link to download most of the presented material in due course. For others, we’re planning to bring as much as possible of the material to this blog during the coming days and weeks, and starting later today.
We’re grateful for the support of Microsoft, Arrow, and ARM, who already blogged about the event.
