I'm going to be over in the US on vacation when this happens.  Toying with
the idea of sneaking away from the wife & kids and going....

Is it a worthwhile course?

Is anyone here going?  Did anyone go last year?  All opinions gratefully
received.

I really don't know, this year is my first time, however the cource
program
is fully packed with interesting stuff, barring the language barrier (
not native
english ) I think it'll be memorable experience.

It is an excellent idea. A few people have also brought their wife and
kids, but not very often (Hey Larry!). The classes are 10% marketing
(future tools/products) and 90% hands on training. You get to write a
clip of program to make a widget work. USB, CAN, LAN, you name it. And
they feed you well!

I have gone every year since it started. I find it well worth the time and
cost to go. Good information in a solid format.

They may be going again next year too. I will be there solo this year and
will not have to leave early like last year. I am looking forward to the
robot contest again since I had to miss it last year. I never miss going
and always book ahead. Worth every penny and the time involved.

Microchip happen.

I'll be there too (crazy, eh, PHX in July? why don't they have it in
January?).  Hope to see some of you people there.

Any particular place where PIClisters commonly meet?  Maybe we should wear
some identifying item, like wandering around with a PIClist cup, or a
T-shirt that says "Unsubscribble".   Or one of those solar beany propeller
hats the real geeks wear.

The trouble is, we would not look any different than all of the other
geeks there.

The schedule is pretty jam packed, what with classes, meals, and events.
I have never seen a serious attempt to gather piclisters together,
although 4 years ago Andy Warren did teach a class on PIC tips, and had
a mention of the PICLIST. He even attributed code clips to Dmitry,
Scott, and others. I also palled around with Andy Kunz one year too. And
Larry Nelson is like a fixture.

I just thought of an idea. Everyone passes through the Microchip store
once or twice. One could make up a simple sign that says 'Piclist
getogether at the east pool Thursday night at 7:00'. If we did something
like that, and folks got a day or two to see it, then it might work. But
you have to find out what the events schedule is before you make the
sign.

I've seen badges with a big "@" on them used to good effect (another venue)

I think a good place to meet is either at the robot competition or at the
game night. Last year a bunch of us walked across the street to do some
shopping at our favorite toy store. That is one of the advantages of the
new location.
Larry

PS Yes I am a fixture and hope to be for many more years  ;)

OK - I'll bite. :-)

Not having been before, what's the toy store across the street?

Should I bring an extra suitcase or do they ship?

thanks

Chuckc,

It's a FRY'S Electronics. Just down the street is the
mall as well. Pretty good size Virgin Megastore there.

A sign like that would get a lot of curious people attending.
Not that I see a problem with that, but just that it defeats
the purpose of getting only the piclisters together, which
seems to be the intention here.

What you need is something that only piclisters would
understand/recognize, such as t-shirts with "my wages are
$1-a-day" or misspell "your" for "you're".  :-)

Yes, I'm in a trouble-making mood today, especially
considering that I won't even be there.

Cheers,
-Neil.

For those people on the East coast attending the conference and thinking about going to Fry's, do a quick yahoo search on "fry's electronics" and look at the unofficial Fry's pages. :-)

I've only been to the San Diego store but it pretty much lived up to what other people have encountered. We got a pretty good price on a HP Palmtop but getting out of the store with it - ugh!

Fry's is across the street. Great place. I wish they had one near me here
in MA. I do not know if they ship but Microchip will ship your Microchip
purchases for a fee. Possibly they or the hotel can arrange shipping for
you if you buy a lot of goodies.

Or a T shirt with a question, like:

"How fast can a 4MHz PIC go?"

"My perfect program on a 16F84 won't ..."

"Please help me or I'll have to shoot myself, or worse, read the manual"

"What's wrong with my PIC since my program won't run?"

Post it on the piclist.

I was at that very store in February.  Twice.  Did not manage to find a
single item I couldn't live without that was at a price I found
irresistable.  Sadly, we have stores in Omaha with prices and selection as
good on the consumer type crap, and the stock of parts and such seemed to
be way less than my forst Fry's trip a couple of years ago.  The only
thing I bought was some Penguin mints.  And yes, it was a hassle getting
them out of the store too.
