Interview: Insights for Aspiring Engineers & Product Designers
In this longform interview that I recorded with Altium about a year ago, I share some of my thoughts on accessibility, holistic engineering, and developing products with a collaborative mindset.
Leveraging Engineering Expertise for Supply Chain Success (AltiumLive 2020 Keynote)
The 2020 AltiumLive annual PCB Design conference may have been virtual, thanks to COVID-19, but that didn’t stop me from participating and giving a keynote focused on supply chain management for engineers.
Holistic Product Design for Electrical Engineers – AltiumLive 2019 Keynote Talk
Last year, I spoke about empathetic engineering at Altium’s annual PCB design conference. This year, they invited me back to take that topic a step further. In my 2019 AltiumLive keynote, I discuss what holistic product design means for electrical engineers and PCB designers. Read on to watch the full keynote.
Empathetic Engineering: Watch my Keynote and a Shaper Spotlight from AltiumLive 2018
I recently had the privilege of delivering one of the keynote talks at AltiumLive 2018, an annual conference for circuit board designers. In my talk, I used Shaper (where I currently work) as a case study of how design thinking principles can be leveraged to help engineers design better products. Read on to watch the keynote and a video that highlights Shaper’s design philosophy.
Open Source Society [TEDx Cornell Talk]
Back in October I was invited to speak at Cornell University’s first annual TEDx event. The theme of the evening was “rethinking our society”, so naturally, my talk focused on how open source concepts could be used to re-imagine how our world works.
