Fun place to work
Charles Murray   8/15/2012 7:26:43 PM

Maybe I'm getting taken in by the hype, but it appears to me that NI has succeeded in making the company a "fun place to work." Whenever I've attended NI Week, the engineers have struck me as genuinely enjoying their jobs. It's a contagious sort of atmosphere, which is why NI week has become so popular, I think.

Re: Education market important

Good point on the CAE vendors, Naperlou. NI is definitely on to something and many of the vendors in the CAD space are aggressively pushing similar student- and university-focused efforts. The earlier you can get kids comfortable and familiar with your software, the more likely they will be to want to leverage that tool set as they move into their professional careers. No one likes to switch tools, especially when those tools are continually evolving to meet your needs. Graduating engineers exposed to professional design tools come into the workforce better prepared to to do their jobs more effectively plus act as evangelists for their preferred tool set. All goo--for the design tool manufacturer, for the manufacturers, and for the incoming workforce.

Education market important

I have noticed that many tool vendors do not do enough to address the education market.  This is especially true of CAE vendors.  Most schools have little of the software that engineers will use in their careers.  Those vendors that do support the market often make evangelists out of the students that come into contact with their products.  Apple is one that has targeted the education space and it helps them stay in the game (I am talking about the MAC).

Latest Analysis
ABI Research, a firm based in the UK that specializes in analyzing global connectivity and other emerging technologies, estimates there will be 40.9 billion active wirelessly interconnected “things” by 2020. The driving force is the usual suspect: the Internet of Things.
Just in time for Earth Day, chemicals leader Bayer MaterialScience reported from the UTECH Europe 2015 polyurethane show on programs and applications using its materials to help reduce energy usage. The company also gave an update on its CO2-based PU as that eco-friendly material comes closer to production.
Solar and wind energy are becoming more viable as a source of energy on the electric grid. For decades, the major drawback to solar and wind was that they’re temperamental. A cloudy day kills solar and a still day renders the wind turbines useless. Automation tools, however, are providing a path to help these renewables become practical.
In honor of Earth Day, the National Security Agency has launched the STEM Recycling Challenge in Maryland schools to encourage kids to think about where the garbage they throw out every day actually goes. The agency has also introduced “Dunk,” a muscular blue cartoon recycling bin wearing shorts and sneakers.
If you’ve noticed the recent news about electric cars and batteries, then it’s easy to wonder about the continuing wisdom behind public subsidies for EVs.
