76 DESIGN007 MAGAZINE I DECEMBER 2018 Article by Andy Shaughnessy I-CONNECT007 It's been just two months since the Altium- Live event drew several hundred designers to San Diego, California, and Altium is already gearing up for the next show in Munich, Ger- many (January 15–17, 2019). I recently spoke with Chris Donato, VP of global sales for Altium, about the upcoming AltiumLive show as well as the company's growth over the past few years. Andy Shaughnessy: Chris, welcome. Why don't you start by telling us a little about January's AltiumLive event in Munich? What can attend- ees expect at your sophomore event? Chris Donato: Thanks, Andy. AltiumLive is quickly becoming one of the largest educa- tional events that focuses exclusively on PCB design. Attendees in Munich can expect four fantastic keynote presenters: Thomas Wis- chnack of Porsche Engineering, Dan Beeker of NXP Semiconductors, Alun Morgan of Ventec, and Max Seeley of 3M. We also have a full-day high-speed class taught by Lee Ritchey on the front end. That class runs in parallel with our University Day, which features a variety of different Altium Designer courses. In addition to that, 12 pre- sentations from Altium Designer users and supply chain experts are scheduled, and six professional development courses are avail- able on topics like multi-board, advanced design rules, and constraints and documenta- tion. That's 30 sessions in total, and they're all filled with some amazing education opportuni- ties not only for our users but for us as well. Lastly, we'll host two sessions to present Altium Designer 19, and finally, Altium 365—a cloud-based platform that allows for unprec- edented collaboration between all stakeholders in the design-to-realization process. It's cer- tainly an exciting time to be a part of Altium. Shaughnessy: Now, let's segue a little. How are things going at Altium? I understand you've had some real growth lately. Donato: First, thank you for giving me this opportunity. I've been here for close to 15 ALTIUM Prepares for Munich Show as Growth Continues
