The New Denny’s Look

Image of Denny's in Santa Clara, Silicon Valley

The Denny’s at Bowers and Augustine in Santa Clara has a new look. The bright shine of the metal gives it a “Diner” look. I haven’t been in, but I can see a Juke Box through the window. I’m glad they are open, as I have used this Denny’s as a “conference room.”

The Embedded Systems Conference

10th Year Anniversary

The Embedded Systems Conference is 10 years old. I like this one. I think it has helped to make embedded system engineering more respectable. This year the conference overflows outside San Jose Convention Center building to hotels and auditoriums nearby, and has an additional pavilion outside the main building.

State of the art ground transportation is available to attendees in San Jose. 🙂 Seriously, this one looks like lots of fun, especially in todays warm weather.

Overflow exhibits in the hallway of the convention center. (In earlier shows this was a quiet place to relax between exhibits and conference sessions.

Embedded Internet Workshop

I had hoped for a nice shot of the Embedded Internet Conference trade show and lunch line. Well, I must have had a camera problem. We can conclude there was an interesting carpet, and lighter color slacks are popular.

This show was held in the Wyndham Hotel San Jose. For a better picture than mine, see their site!
