Newark element14 is making its presence known throughout California with the help of billboards, branded bus shelters, customer appreciation events and a wrapped van. Have you seen any of them? They’re all part of a wider Tech Tour which promotes our products and services to the region’s engineering community. If you see our van or an advertisement, take a picture and tweet it using #Ne14TechTour.
This week we’ve got several exciting events taking place including six SBC Master Class Technology Days. They’re two-hour workshops where engineers can learn from experts about the latest single board computers (SBCs) and applications they support. Attendees can also get their hands on the devices and components. Four of the Master Class Tech Days are already full (in San Diego and Orange County), but there are a few spots remaining in the LA events. There will be an afternoon session Thursday, Oct. 30 and a morning session on Friday, Oct. 31. They will both take place at the Marriott Woodland Hills (21850 Oxnard St., Woodland Hills, CA).
Morning sessions will include breakfast for attendees and cocktails will be provided in the afternoon sessions. Products featured will include the RIoTboard, along with power supply, WiFi adapter and Xtrinsic Sensor Board. Five attendees will get to take their RIoTboard and components with them, and all attendees will get a 20% off voucher (expires Nov. 30).
