I read each application 3 times
That's dedication, thank you.
That sounds like a tough job! I decided not to enter, but if the initial blog posts make it seem like getting into FPGAs is worth it then I'll be purchasing a board and following along.
I am also interested in buying a board and following along. Is that possible? Where can I find more info about it?
Wow , It is indeed a tough call. And thanks Randall for those +3 application.
I am so excited , and just keepibg my fingures crossed for a seat at the table of 8
That was really nice of element14 to sponsor another 3 people. I look forward to reading about their experience.
I think we are all waiting to see the outcome list. Randall well-done!
I was checking everyday after the dateline, lost hope when I didn't see any updates. Came back today to see the winner's blogs but surprised and glad to see Randall's post. There's still hope. Thanks Randall for the effort and time in selecting the winners and thanks element14 for sponsoring the 3 additional winners!
I think, Winners might Have already received the eMails. But, Nothing like an Official Announcement.
There were 132 applications in our Path to Programmable training program. This came down to 106 pages of MS word pages! A lot of information to go through!!
I read each application 3 times to make sure everyone was equally considered for this training program.
There were many, many great applications. Most people followed our procedure and answered the five additional questions. Thanks.
I've selected the winners with a few changes. Since there were so many good applicants, I expanded the trainees from 5 to 8. (element14 paid for the three additional MiniZed boards.)
So, eight people were selected, as well as two alternates.
The official announcement will be coming very soon.
Thanks for all who applied.
