Welcome to the August edition of Altium’s On Track Newsletter. It seems like every electronics industry event where PCB designers gather, the conversation inevitably drifts to questions about where the next generation of PCB designers are going to come from. The old guard is retiring, yet their replacements don’t appear to be filling the vacancies they leave behind. From my perspective, I see many ways new PCB designers are emerging, but rather than present my case, I’d like to introduce you to Nicole Pacino--a very talented young designer featured in our Next Gen Designers feature.
In this month’s On Track video series, Chris Carlson presents PCB Design Process in a Nutshell.
As Altium® continues to mature as an organization, we understand we must be part of the solution to raise up the next generation of designers as well as continually equip current PCB designers. One exciting way we’ve decided to do this is to create a new yearly 2-day event called AltiumLive 2017: ANNUAL PCB DESIGN SUMMIT, coming this October. Read below about the great lineup we have planned for you of industry luminaries, fellow designers, and a series of robust professional development courses. Reserve your spot soon, space is limited!
Enjoy and stay On Track!
