Is this a great job or what!

This is such a great job. I actually getting paid to learn how to do new things with PSoC and pass this information on to you guys. I spend a lot of time on the road and I go visit so many different and amazing companies. For the most part, I find engineers that are involved with product design for very specific product types for mostly obscure companies. They are proud of what they build and have a uniquely detailed understanding of their industry. They attempt to do the best job they can with less than perfect parts, less than perfect tools, on under funded, under staffed projects. Still they carry on. A while back I met with an engineer at a company that builds RF value control boards for agricultural sprinkler systems. They built the most popular system west of the Mississippi and no one could even guess their name. Still this engineer is proud to have three patents dealing with efficient water delivery. He is excited that his company may be venturing in to golf course watering systems (And he loves PSoC). One engineer I work with is from Adidas and when he goes to the movies, notices what shoes all the actors wear. I swear he can name style and type at 50 yards. Some engineers are new, others quite experienced, and several have written books. Each engineer has a unique prospective and I get to learn something from each one of them.

If I am lucky the company will manufacture on site and I get to see really cool equipment. A lock company I visited has a machine the opens and closes a door about a million times for live time testing. One power tool company has a test room where the sound is so loud it would kill you if you went in long enough with unprotected ears.

 
I travel around a lot and there is a chance I may be in your area. If you would like me to come visit your company perhaps it can be arranged. I can’t promise anything but I always like meeting engineers that have found something new to do with PSoC. Talk with your Cypress salesman or your Arrow, Avnet, or Future distribution FAE. We’ll make him buy lunch!
