Welcome to the December issue of Altium’s On Track Newsletter. In celebration of our far reaching global community, we are shining the spotlight on an impressive PCB designer from Norway this month. Tor-Anders Lunder designs boards for a startup company called Staaker which makes a tracking drone with a camera mount for sports enthusiasts.
In Maker Space, we highlight a group of Brazilian students that make robots and compete internationally in Robocup. Chris Carlson wraps up his thermal management video series discussing PCB heat transfer. We’ve also given you a hearty portion of Brain Food to keep you sharp!
As 2017 draws to a close and we reflect on this past year, we are sincerely grateful for the many ways in which we have connected with so many of you personally. Whether it be at a meetup, the AltiumLive Summit, trade events or even through this newsletter--we are encouraged by the growing sense of community that we’ve built together this year. Thank you for continuing to engage with us and share valuable feedback that helps us to continually improve our products and grow as a company. We wish you a happy and healthy holiday season and a very happy 2018. We look forward to continued growth as a community in the new year!
