Here is an upcoming event, QNX Workshop, on April 24th at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel San Jose, 2050 Gateway Pl, San Jose, CA 95110. It's sure a good opportunity to learn QNX hands on. Below is the forwarded email on the event that Larry posted. And you need to register at ICS's website:

Based on discussions I've had with some members of this group, I think some of you might be interested in this (not trying to spam here)
As many of you know, QNX has been in the news a lot lately (Ford , CarPlay, Apple hires QNX SVP, etc.) and this morning in the earnings call our CEO, John Chen, mentioned that QNX has 50% of the Automobile infotainment OS market --I've heard the number quoted as high as 70%, but who am I to contradict our CEO, right? Beyond Auto, QNX is also at the heart of many nuclear power plants, gambling machines, medical devices, was used in the space shuttle, and can be found in household appliances (Asia mostly). It does well in mission-critical, constrained, and extreme multitasking environments.
So, for those of you uber-geeks that want to see what all the fuss is about, ICS is holding a free hand's on workshop (including tools and hardware) on April 24th at the Double Tree by Hilton in San Jose. Registration is limited, so if you're interested, don't wait.
