It can be a tough sell convincing your boss that you need to spend a few days at a technical conference, such as ARM TechCon. But the convincing gets a lot easier when you explain that you can spend an entire day learning from some of the leading training experts in your field.Training Session ARM TechCon 2014

That’s the idea behind this year’s version of ARM Training Day at ARM TechCon, Tuesday Nov. 10, from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Santa Clara Convention Center. ARM Training Day is more robust than ever, with a lineup that includes training and domain experts from Doulos, Hardent, Feabhas and ARM, who will talk about resilient programming, FPGA acceleration, ARMv8 architecture and modeling and more efficient interrupts on ARM Cortex-M microcontrollers.

“We approached three partners and said ‘let’s give them the best stuff we have, and let’s put together leading-edge useful ARM-related training presentations,’” said Chris Shore, ARM Training Product Manager, who has helped organize Training Day. “It’s nearly 7 hours of in-depth training, and I think it’s a great opportunity for attendees to get lots of value out of these experts.”

Here’s the lineup:

  • The event kicks off from 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., with Doulos’ David Cabanis walking the audience through how the ARMv8 architecture programmer’s model is transforming embedded computing.
  • Shaun Purvis from Hardent (1-3 p.m.) will talk about FPGA acceleration.
  • Niall Cooling from Feabhas (3-4:30 p.m.) will describe C++ exception handling on the ARMv7 architecture.
  • Shore (4:30-6 p.m.) will discuss how to work with efficient interrupts on ARM Cortex-M microcontrollers.
