Sounds like a must see...and I think Silicon Valley needs one too.
Of course we are all well outfitted here. My son now works as a contractor in Google's You Tube HQ in San Bruno where he showed me the polished industrial-strength expresso machine just a few feet from his cube. He's still trying to figure out how to use it.
Speaking of coffee, i just spoke with Kirk Laney, CEO of ams, and he was describing the color sensor they make that will go in Keurig coffee makers to detect fake Keurig coffee pods. Coffee is serious business.
but seriously, I find it interesting (and sweet) engineers in Shanghai seeking for a place to hang out for themselves. Beyond your cubicles, beyond a kitchen of your office, people need to get out...and find the place where they all know you.
Junko, thank you for the look inside this coffee shop. When I first started, some of us talked about opening a bar across the street for after work. It would have been more like Cheers, but I doubt we would have had a 3D printer or a projector. You would have to write your ideas on the cocktail napkin.
That is very good effort. I may like to add following. We have similar club, but we meet thrice a month at differnt locations, due to limited time. Also, we encourage all discipline to get involved. For success, you need to have finance, HR, all engineering discplines to get involved. We also have brief talk about some success story.
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. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
