My students,

I usually do not use the class email list to send you general 
announcements, but this one is something I think you really
should know about.  So, ...

The IEEE Computer Society is hosting a freshman embedded systems
competition designed for students currently taking EE 306. Each team will
receive (and get to keep) the board that you will use in 319K next
semester. They anticipate the competition to take several hours (about 3).
The first hour will be an interactive "lecture" in which they introduce the
board, the subset of the assembly language you may need, and how to
program it. They are providing all parts that you may need (the competition
is completely free to you).

When: Saturday, November 16, 10AM
Where: ACA 1.104

For those of you who decide to do this, good luck!

I will see you in class on Monday.
