Be nice! Robots have feelings too. :)
If happened to get a pic with Al (which somehow I can't picture you doing, but nonetheless) we're giving away $100 Southwest Airlines giftcard to the best tweeted photo with Al. Just mention @AldecInc.

I didn't go this year, even though it was close to me. It's not that I've lost interest in DAC, it's just that I'm trying to make the most out of the tools I _already_ have access to. Sometimes the focus has to be on getting things done, rather than getting new things....
Thanks for the writeup and the slide show Dylan, for the benefit of those of us who couldn't attend.
Regarding the angry protester on slide 13, perhaps he was upset because his EDA startup and his "revolutionary new tool" still hasn't been bought out by one of the Big Three :)
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
