This blog has been updated to include post-DAC discussions as well - those in bold below.

 

In looking around the Community, I'm seeing a lot of discussions and excitement about the 2014 Design Automation Conference in San Francisco. I thought I'd use this opportunity to put everything (or nearly everything) in one location.

 

So far, my favorite upcoming event is the ARM Step Challenge (#ARMStepChallenge). A few blogs on the topic:
