Welcome to the first edition of the Altium® newsletter, On Track. First and foremost this has been created with you in mind–the PCB designer, the Maker and the Innovator. This monthly publication has been designed to elevate, inspire and equip designers everywhere to do their magic and to help unleash the next generation of technology.
When a company like Altium begins to “grow up” it’s easy to forget what was most important in the beginning. Therefore, as an organization, we’ve taken some time to reflect and recalibrate. We realize that YOU are what has always been most important to Altium; the tenacious designer who spends long hours puzzling over a challenging design; the student designing his first robot; the tech-entrepreneur pouring her all into a dynamic start-up. You have always been our inspiration for the software we create.
It is our hope that On Track will honor your craft and equip you with helpful resources, as well as keep us on track at Altium to be ever mindful of what’s truly important.
On a personal note, after two decades of working alongside engineers and designers, it is my privilege to act as editor of this newsletter. If you ever have any questions, feedback or ideas for On Track, you can email me directly at email@example.com.
