( Before you read further, “Steve’s Drop In Coaching” is at 1pm today at Connect in Sunnyvale, it’s also mentioned below but you may want to head that way now.  I tried to get this message out Friday but ran out of computer time at Connect and the Library both.  Library irked me in particular since there were plenty of unused computers, oh well.)
Usually I don’t begin with a recap but want to point out here at the start both the Csix Interview Workshop held at SEMI on Tuesday and the MedTech Frontiers event at Triple Ring were very heavily attended.  I’d say the Csix workshop was easily 5X the number of people who show up on a typical Thursday Csix meeting, and the Triple Ring event was maybe 3X the usual number at that event in my experience.
As I’ve mentioned before, the Triple Ring events are free and there’s free catered food, this time I took some pics:
And there was plenty for all.  Only water to drink however.  Made at least one very good contact and met several interesting people.  The speaker was the Director of Innovation and Advanced Technology, part of Kaiser Permanente Information Technology.
Last time I failed to mention Post Pro Match on Friday.  I did attend, not sure I can attest to its value, other than motivation to get the show on the road early that day.
I did not go to CAM Saturday but did go to the funeral service I mentioned, made some interesting contacts there.
So, this week:
Monday there is Steve’s Drop In coaching, 1pm to 2:30pm at Connect in Sunnyvale, unfortunately that’s in about two hours from now.
Monday night, AIAA at the Hacker Dojo, topic is "Cal Poly CubeSat Workshop — A Retrospective", Speaker is Barbara Plante, Boreal Information Technologies, Silicon Valley, California
Free event but they’d like you to RSVP.  These have been very enjoyable, low-key events held almost weekly.
Tuesday there will be Bio2Device in the Sunnyvale Council Chambers at 8:30am, topic is
Butterfly effect in the pharmaceutical development :
Toastmatchers as usual will be Tuesday at 1pm at Connect
Wednesday the SCV IEEE PV group will meet at PARC in Palo Alto, the speaker is the President Emeritus of Sunpower.
Free event, there may or may not be food or nametags.  For some reason the MIT Club is announcing this event but I don’t believe it is truly an MIT event ( because they usually have wine and food )
These links won’t open for me ( maybe the PM tech support can help me out on this ):
So here are the details:
A view of the solar industry, DOE's SunShot program and more!

Thursday there will be Eco Green Group / Csix as usual, I’ll send another message about that before then.
