8 I-CONNECT007 I REAL TIME WITH... IPC APEX EXPO 2019 SHOW & TELL MAGAZINE dation for the change. Another theme for the show could have been "Industry Evolution Accelerated." So, as you go through these pages, here is a preview of what you will find. Dr. John Mitchell's column is slotted first, and his takeaways set the stage for our cover- age. Next, our Real Time with… IPC APEX EXPO 2019 video showcase and library take you right to the show floor with news, interviews, and insider commentary from industry leaders. Of course, we cannot deliver this amount of detailed coverage without the help of I-Con- nect007 interviewers. This is our turn to say, "Thank you." Happy Holden gives his impressions of the show in "Happy's Highlights." Happy followed factory automation news and many of the other conference and exhibition proceedings. Then, we go to full coverage of Leo Lambert, the 2019 IPC Hall of Fame inductee. The next piece, "Inspiring The Next Gen- eration of Industry Leaders," focuses on the success of the IPC STEM Student Outreach program from Colette Buscemi's perspective, IPC's senior director for education programs. We follow this with two interviews: one with Marcos McGalliard, a high school STEM stu- dent we met at the show, and Scott O'Hair, a college student who started his own company with a business partner while in school. Adding to the awards coverage, Managing Editor Patty Goldman brings us the recipients of the Dieter Bergman Fellowship Awards. Dan Feinberg, I-Connect007 technical editor, sits down with David Bergman to discuss the roots, reasons, and ramifications of the CFX standard. Also, during the week, I spoke to a number of CFX supporter companies about the impor- tance of CFX to their products. In this article, we share those perspectives. I-Connect007 Technical Editor Pete Starkey adds to his reputation as a stellar reporter of conferences and speakers by filing this report on the IPC APEX EXPO 2019 keynote speech delivered by Tesla CTO and Co-founder JB Straubel. Straubel's talk was on "Accelerating and Disrupting Innovation—The Tesla Story." Let Pete's account take you into the room with him. The recipient of the Best Technical Paper Award, Dr. Chen Xu from Nokia, agreed to an interview with Technical Editor Happy Holden. There is, perhaps, no one better than Happy to provide an understanding of the big picture around a technical topic. Further, this year saw the return of the I-Con- nect007 Student Photo Contest. Three local college students brought a unique and artistic perspective to our coverage of the show. Meet them, find out who won, and view their show- cased work. In "IPC APEX EXPO: Perhaps the Best One Yet," Dan Feinberg makes a case for his claim, and Dan should know. He's not only an IPC Hall of Famer and an I-Connect007 technical editor and interviewer, but he's also one of the founders of the show. See why Dan thinks this show was the best.
