OpenSystems Media Teams with IAR Systems for Second Year of Global IAR DevCon Series

June 25, 2019 Rich Nass

OpenSystems Media (OSM), the leading media outlet for engineers working on Automotive, Embedded, IoT, and Industrial applications, is once again partnering with IAR Systems to develop and host the 2019 Global IAR DevCon Series. This year’s events will feature expanded educational tracks and will incorporate various elements of security into the embedded design cycle.

IAR Developer Conferences will be hosted in nine cities around the world starting in the fall of 2019. In the U.S., DevCons will be conducted in Austin, Boston and San Jose; in Europe, the host cities will include Cambridge, Munich, Stockholm and Kempele; in Asia, Developers Conferences will be conducted in Tokyo and Seoul.

Each of the events will kick off with a forward-looking keynote, delivered by a representative of IAR Systems, followed by an update to the popular IAR Embedded Workbench product, the de-facto tool for total code quality. There will be ample time for networking and getting all design/development questions answered.

“The IAR DevCon is a great opportunity to interact with our global user community, to present the latest features and share our developers’ specific knowledge and experience as well as receive feedback, a chance to listen in on new feature requests and different industry trends,” said Stefan Skarin, CEO of IAR Systems. “OSM has proven a great partner to deliver the platform for IAR DevCon to perform and develop.”

“We are very excited to begin Year Two of this relationship with IAR,” said Rich Nass, Executive Vice President of OSM and leader of its Embedded Computing Design franchise. “We’ve learned so much from the Developers Conference attendees that we’re expanding the program this year, particularly bringing security to the forefront. It’s been a win for all parties.”
