Come Back to the Future – EDA Style!
September 25th, 2013 by Rob van Blommestein
“Sold! To…” Is a phrase we expect to hear a lot on the evening of October 16th. That’s the date when we celebrate the past 50+ years of EDA at the EDA: Back to the Future industry reunion hosted by EDAC.
Why do we expect to hear this phrase a lot you ask? Well, part of the festivities will include silent and live auctions that will help raise money for the Computer History Museum’s EDA Oral Histories Collection and Exhibit. We want to capture and preserve our rich history of EDA. There will be items to bid on for every taste and budget. You could be the one to win a lunch with Aart or go home with a case of private reserve wine. Maybe you’re a sports fan. If so, then a private tour of AT&T Park, an autographed baseball from Giants Brandon Belt, or a round of golf with three of your closest friends is more up your alley. Are you a “foodie”? Well, how about dinner at some of Mountain View’s finest eateries?
This event offers more than just a chance to walk away with something tangible. You’ll be able to mingle and dine with industry luminaries – the who’s who in EDA’s past, present, and future. What other event brings everyone together like that?
And what event would be complete without some laughs and a little mystery? To find out what I mean, you’ll need to come.
So get those bidding paddles ready and register to attend the must-be-at event in EDA. – http://www.edac.org/events/back_to_the_future
