Earlier this year, the guys and gals at the Beningo Embedded Group and the chaps and chapesses at Embedded Related hosted this year’s Embedded Online Conference.

As I recall, there were more than 6,000 attendees, which is pretty remarkable for this sort of thing. As an aside, between the time of this writing and the end of Friday 16 October 2020, you can watch any two talks of your choice from the conference without having to pay the usual “on-demand” registration fee.

To help you choose which two talks to watch, feel free to have a look at the analytics. Once you’ve made your selection, all you have to do is register, skip the “fee” part, and just watch the two talks in which you are most interested. Dare I make so bold as to suggest you consider my own humble presentation: What the FAQ is an FPGA?

But that’s not what I wanted to talk to you about. I just heard that the little scamps are going to be hosting their very first IoT Online Conference (with a strong focus on embedded development) 8-9 December 2020.

The hot news is that, if you register before 1 November 2020, you can get the Basic Registration for free (this grants you access to all of the presentations but only on the two days of the conference — by comparison, the Premium Registration also grants on-demand access for a year following the conference).

But wait, there’s more because the organizers say that still have room to squeeze in a few more talks/speakers and they would love to receive your suggestions. What topic should they try to cover? To whom should they reach out as potential speakers? Would you be interested in presenting yourself? If you do have any thoughts you’d care to share, you can post them as comments on this forum post on Embedded Related.

I don’t know about you, but “free” is a good thing where I come from. I’m just about to bounce over and register myself before all the good virtual seats get taken. Maybe I’ll see you there 🙂
