Day 2: Tuesday’s Lineup Highlights Engineering Education

September 01, 2020 by Kate Smith

Day 2 comes in with a keynote speaker near and dear to All About Circuits' heart.

Industry Tech Days has been very well attended and Live Session attendees have posed engaging (and sometimes challenging) questions to our speakers. 

The event has already garnered over 6,000 registrants and 11,000 webinar attendees with four more days of continuing education on the horizon. Of particular note was Omron's Live Session yesterday morning, "Omron MOSFET Relays and Modules", which had hundreds of registrants gather to hear Zac Hendrix explore the details of their G3VM MOS FET products.

Another clear Day 1 highlight was the keynote by Richard Barry, Senior Principal Engineer at Amazon Web Services and co-founder of FreeRTOS.



Barry engaged in conversation with Dave Finch, New York Times bestselling author, engineer, and host of Moore's Lobby, the All About Circuits podcast. This non-traditional keynote address format brought levity and warmth to a topic that could easily have been dense and unwieldy—IoT processing techniques. Catch the recording here.

We have already heard from many of you who have shown great support for the event. We're ecstatic to show you what else we have up our sleeve.

Today, we have a host of content for you, so be sure to cruise around the event homepage for the latest, use the site search, or go directly to a company's booth page on our virtual expo floor.
