Do you have any DAC related stories. What did you like or dislike? Any observations?

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!

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

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!

I would like a DAC chapter to be held in India as well some place like Bangalore so that we too benefit from such expos !.

I was watching the travel channel on television the other evening. It was some program about Madrid. The thing I really noticed was the plethora of statues all over the place.
