3rd ARM Developer Day @ RIT
The 3rd ARM Developer Day @RIT was held on November 30th, 2012. More than 150 students and faculty from RIT and nearby colleges participated in the event. There were 16 concurrent workshops throughout the day as well as several focused presentations.
There were more than a dozen companies participating including: ARM, Keil, Texas Instruments, Freescale, Cypress Semiconductors, Microsemi, QNX, NXP, Xilinx, Avnet, Mathworks, Element14 and last but not least, the Raspberry Pi Foundation. As a matter of fact, there were Raspberry Pi workshops every day leading up to the event. These workshops were given by Tech Evangelist Rob Bishop at different venues throughout Rochester school district, at hacker spaces, with student organizations, and at the 3rd ARM Developer Day. They concluded on Saturday December 1st with another set of workshops and with the 24 hour hackaton in the Random Hacks of Kindness Global event.
This annual event gives an opportunity to students and faculty to learn about new technology, open source platforms, and innovation. In addition, it is a fantastic opportunity for students to network with other students and companies in search for co-ops or full time positions.
During the event, ARM University Program Manager Joe Bungo announced the second student design contest on Energy Efficient projects that will culminate at the Imagine RIT festival. Students will showcase their ideas to a possible audience of more than 30,000 quests, who will participate in the selection of the best student project.
