At Shaper, I design all of our electronics using Altium Designer. Altium hosts an annual design conference called AltiumLive at which electrical engineers and PCB designers come together to learn from each other and to discuss the state-of-the-art in circuit board design and fabrication. At last year’s conference in San Diego I gave a keynote address about the importance of empathetic engineering and “design thinking”. At this year’s conference in Frankfurt, I had the opportunity to deliver another keynote. In this talk, I expanded upon my topic from last year to explain how engineers can take a more holistic approach to circuit board design.
Thanks to a variety of airplane delays and cancellations, I arrived to Germany only an hour before my keynote. I fought through my jetlag to deliver the talk, and it was well received by the audience. Watch it below!
In advance of AltiumLive 2019, I also recorded a podcast episode for Altium’s weekly podcast: OnTrack. You can listen to it below.
