The Scottish Device Developers Conference is to take place at Uphall, 5th June.

A one-day conference for engineers, designers and computer scientists working to developer intelligent systems and devices is to take place on the 5th June, at Uphall. The Scottish Device Developers' Conference will enable developers to explore new tools and technologies, discover new suppliers and learn from industry experts.

Consisting of a vendor exhibition, a broad range of technical presentations and several half-day technical workshops, The Scottish Device Developers' Conference is expected to prove a worthwhile and productive day for those working in the field of embedded systems and mission critical computing.

This event is free to engineers, developers and technical managers, although there is a small charge for the half-day workshops.

"We are excited to be running this event in Scotland," said Richard Blackburn, Conference Manager. "There is a lot of impressive research and development taking place in this region, so we feel sure that this event will be seen as an attractive opportunity for developers to further enhance their skills and knowledge. It will also be an important opportunity for them to meet leading tools and technology vendors from around the world, all under one roof."

Topics covered at the conference will include ‘device to cloud connectivity’, ‘using open source software for critical applications’, ‘connecting a TFT display to an embedded system’, ‘advanced debugging techniques’ and ‘a guide to developing using the ARM Cortex-M’. The presentations and workshops will be given by experts in their field.

The conference is sponsored by German debug tool company Lauterbach, UK embedded systems training experts Feabhas and Italian industrial computer manufacturer Eurotech. More than thirty other embedded systems tools and technology companies will be exhibiting and presenting at this event.

“There has been a lot of industry support for this Scottish event,” said Richard Blackburn. “There will be 15 high quality technical presentations to choose from, 4 half-day technical workshops and about 30 companies exhibiting and demonstrating new technology.”

Running alongside this event, there will also be a smaller conference called The Reliable Software Developers Conference. This is a one-day conference exploring the software tools and coding standards that help companies develop safety critical and highly reliable software. The afternoon will be given over to a workshop called “Getting to Grips with MISRA C:2012”. MISRA C is a coding standard that is increasingly being adopted by developers worldwide where safety and reliability has to be assured.
