Last year, Texas Instruments started providing a quarterly one-day online conference just for developers targeting TI’s equipment called ETech Days. These mini-conferences feature presentations from TI’s engineers as well as industry leaders, live TI representatives all day in the TI E2E community forums, and online live training sessions in several tracks. The summer ETech Days happens this week, and features short presentations from each of the six students participating in the BeagleBoard Google Summer of Code project, for which I am honored to be a mentor.

Did I mention that it is free as well? While it is true that value per dollar is undefined when the cost is zero (DIV/0!!) the value for ETech Days is definitely worth the time you will spend on it.

The remaining dates for this year are June 29 (yes, Tuesday!), September 29, and December 7. Be sure to mark your calendars and bookmark http://www.ti.com/ww/en/etechdays.
