Austin was a matter of quality over quantity. At Space Codesign, we gave many more demos on the floor at the ARM Connected Community (sometimes a second laptop on the tall chair, for a second group to see!). There were fewer gawkers, as in SF last year. I was totally exhausted at the end. Downtown was easy to get around on foot, much like Portland. And great restaurants!

Brian, State of Tx was hospitable during DAC. Decent temps, no tornados or hail or Tstorms. Come back now as temps are in high 90's and in some locals breaking 100. :) Bill

Brian, my two cents: Something like 60 percent of the attendees were first-time DAC visitors. Dennis Brophy points out that the average is 33ish percent. So clearly the 50th DAC got in front of a whole new world of design engineers. Second, I like the accessibility of Austin and its convention center. Everything's within a few blocks of each other; it's a great town (yeah, OK, a little hot!). Convention center there is a great venue. I think of San Diego and I think a half-mile walk from one end to the other (and I like walking!). Or Anaheim (might as well be located in Death Valley). Is Austin an every-third-year DAC location? Maybe. But I think DAC needs a refresh that's over and above where it lands physically every year. Good to see you there, by the by!

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.
