    OnTrack Newsletter
    April 2018 VOL. 2 No 1

    Welcome to the one-year anniversary edition of the Altium® OnTrack newsletter! In celebration, our team decided to make this the reader’s choice edition by sharing the top three most read articles from Rock Stars and Superheroes and Makerspace for this past year.

    We also have a brand new video by Ben Jordan on Multi-board: Partitioning and Planning, and a fresh batch of Brain Food and Regional News below.
    Speaking of brand new, we have launched OnTrack: The PCB Design Podcast, featuring top PCB designers and electronics industry experts. Please subscribe to the OnTrack podcast through your favorite podcast app. Comments and reviews are appreciated.

    To ensure that we continue to provide you with valuable, top-quality content in 2018, we have created a simple five-question survey. It will take less than one minute to complete but will provide invaluable feedback.

    The entire team at Altium sends their sincere thanks for your continued support and readership in the past year. We look forward to another year of engaging with you through the OnTrack newsletters, videos and podcasts, and are always eager to hear your feedback and ideas!

    Enjoy and always...stay OnTrack!

    Director of Community Engagement
    Highlighting Exceptional PCB Designers
    The three most read articles in the past year in this category of professional designers are featured below. I’ll give you a hint: One is a signal integrity guru, the other is a young woman and next-gen designer whose dad is a veteran designer, and the third is a woman who is a CID Master Instructor who loves to golf. Any guesses?
