8. A Light-Bulb Moment in LEDs
Someday your grandchildren may ask you, "What was a light bulb?" Don't let the technology trends leave you in the dark for an answer. Stop in at the LED Summit, a set of four sessions on Sept. 18.
9. Get Free Stuff
Hey, admit it, filling up a swag bag is one of the minor motivations for wandering a show floor. This year's freebies include a little free advice to entrepreneurs from Ben Einstein of the Bolt accelerator for startups. He will be speaking at the DESIGN East theater at 2:00 p.m. on Sept 19.
Engineers who are signed up for the Android certificate program will get a free DragonBoard from Qualcomm using its SnapDragon S3 applications processor. Intel will raffle off a D2700 Dev Kit using its Atom processor for engineers who take one of its training courses at the show.
10. A Chance to Hang Out With Your Peers
You can't work all the time. I understanding there is beer, wine, and food available in the vicinity -- sometimes right on the show floor. How about that?
