The Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) returned to Minneapolis earlier this month. It was my first time attending the conference, and I would recommend it for anyone working with or in embedded systems.
The conference was held at the Minneapolis Convention Center, and it was well-attended. There were sessions on a wide range of topics, including embedded software development, hardware design, security, verification, and debugging. I attended several sessions on topics such as low power design, oscilloscope measurement techniques, and working with open source tools. The sessions were very informative and gave me a better understanding of the current state of embedded systems.
The conference also had a trade show, where vendors displayed their products and services. It was interesting to see the latest offerings from a variety of vendors. I also took part in several workshops, including one on creating a linux system-on-module (SOM).
Overall, the Embedded Systems Conference was a great experience. I learned a lot, met some interesting people, and made some valuable contacts. I look forward to attending the conference again next year.
