'[PIC] Masters?'

Well, Microchip Master's conference is just around the corner. Looks like
I'll be attending this year.

Anyone else from the list I should expect to bump into there? (or try to
avoid :-)

Any recommendations of the classes and activities?

I will be there as always. I have made it to all of them since number 1. -- Sent from my Android phone with K-9 Mail. Please excuse my brevity.

I believe Olin Lathrop is teaching a course on advanced assembler
techniques, which personally I'm looking forward to.  A number of the USB,
and DSP classes look really interesting too

I'll be there.
The "beer" boat competition was fun to watch. Ok, some of the classes were
interesting too. The fab tour is great because they don't water things down
as if you don't know what a semiconductor is. The class I found really
interesting was the one on MiWi and their 802.15.4 radios. I'd recommend it..

He's the best ASM wizard I've ever heard of. That's worth going to even to write better C or JAL for PIC, even if you never do assembler.

If I could write Assembler like he does, I'd not bother with HLL :)

Maybe he has a built specification language compiler.

There are easier ways to see his face (although not face to face):

I have signed up for the Advanced Assembler course.  I'm quite looking forward to it.

I've spoken with Olin by phone several times - he is not the ogre on the phone that he sometimes is when speaking on the PIClist.  In fact, he was extremely personable and friendly.

He has created a great PIC environment that I don't use often enough.  I'm hoping that getting some tips from his course pushes me to migrate to it much more.

The other thing about meeting him at Masters: I get to buy him a beer (or three).

LOL!

Was NOT what I was expecting. Was expecting more of a tall, skinny, praying
mantis type of figure. Kinda like Sheldon Cooper.

Also, for some reason, his stackexchange replies seem more tame than his
piclist ones

I got to sit through a dry run of his Master's course on Friday.  A lot of
good info in there.  He is really an expert in assembler techniques, and
has developed an extensive set of tools for assembler coding.

Not too much of an effort, there- Microchip *does* have an open bar (beer
and wine) in the evenings. Maybe you can tip the bartender for him!

I'll be there, though I'll be wearing the same color shirt as a lot of the
attendees, though in the evenings I'll be a bit more casual- usually in a
geeky t-shirt and BDUs.  You'll also see me if you attend the course on
signal integrity.

'[PIC] Masters?'

I'm putting this under [PIC] as it's really all about PIC's... right?

Either way, I'm in a position to go to Microchip Masters this year and wondering if it would be beneficial for me.  Thing is that I am an on-and-off PIC developer, so only occasionally get my fingers into some coding.  Mostly, I engineer and code to prove a concept, then have someone else develop the code.

But I really like knowing this stuff, and in the next 6 months to a year, I expect to be doing different things with PICs -- PIC32's, USB, CAN, and Bluetooth, and hope to have more development involvement.

So the question is, given that I am not a full-time PIC developer, but want to be more of a PIC developer than occasional, would I really benefit from going to Masters this year?   Or should I stick to datasheets and forums?

Cheers,
-Neil.

Take a look at the class list- but that is only part of the experience-
Masters is a headlong dive into all things Microchip. You get to talk to
many other people who use Microchip parts, *and* the actual designers of
the parts. You get some insight into the business and why things get done
the way they have been done.

With just datasheets and forums, you don't get as immersive an experience.
Being at Masters will help you focus, if only for a few days, on the
subject of Microchip parts and how they can help you accomplish your end
goal.

Regards,

Matt
