So it’s the 10th year for ARM® TechCon™. Hard to believe. How many have you been to? This will be my 9th year. (Our son was born the week before TechCon so I feel like I should get credit. I did do plenty of work for it before I went on early maternity leave.) This afternoon I thought I’d do a quick status update on the TechCon news that I have seen. Well when I saw just how many blogs there are with details of activities, I realized that I couldn’t fit them in a status update. When you take a gander at all of the blogs below, I think that you’ll agree that this could be the best and busiest TechCon yet.
(Now this is one of the events I am looking forward to the most. The smack talk has begun. Check out the first video by Adam Kerin. The second video from STMicroelectronics is, well, intimidating! The phrase 'amateurs vs. professionals' come to mind. 5x others - now that is a challenge. I've heard rumors of more to come...)

Did I miss anyone’s TechCon news? Please let me know! I’ll update this blog with more news as I see it. Don’t forget to follow the Twitter news with #ARMTechCon.
So my annual regret at TechCon is how much I miss out on. I’m already triple-booked at some times. Yet, I always get so much out of what I do see.
