Cypress User Forums
February 24, 2011
I wanted to give a plug for our new User Forums.
We have learned a lot about hosting forums and I think they are quite good.
The forum is a good place for you to learn from other users and other users to learn from you. You may even develop an expertise, become recognized for that expertise, and become a forum expert. Some of my favorite customers have come from the old MicroSystems forum (Hey Barry!!!). We have looked there for expertise there when trying to hire or help customers hire new employees. One of our best App Engineer came to our attention from the forum.
From a management prospective, a public forum is quite scary. Not only will we get the unvarnished truth, we can get the unvarnished, no holds barred, straight look in the mirror, you baby is ugly, die you scum, truth. Is doesn’t bother me because we will also hear what you users like about PSoC. I am proud of what we have done with PSoC and we can only improve with your input. This blog is mine and I will talk about exactly what I want to. But the forums belong to you users. Go ahead and take control.
We moderate the forums but only for inappropriate material. (swear words, blue pill ads, competitors trying to poison the well, etc) We have salted the forum with some questions but only to get the ball rolling. No one wants to be the first to dance.
So get up and dance already. Give the forums a try. Let me know your impression. E-mail if you like or better yet post your opinion on the forum. It yours after all.
