DVCon 2011: What engineers don't know about making great products

DVCon 2011 Starts with a Bang: UVM Tutorial

It's that time of year - DVCon 2011 starts today. This is the 5th year I've attended DVCon, and today I saw something I haven't seen in prior years - a packed double-size room full of engineers anxiously awaiting the start of the UVM Tutorial sponsored by Accellera. 

Attendees are fired up about the UVM tutorial!

The tutorial will cover the basics of the UVM, the new UVM Phasing mechanism, TLM, Sequences and Configuration, and the new UVM Register Package. Phasing has changed significantly in the UVM 1.0 release, as have sequences, configuration, and the register package... well, let's just say if you're interested in using the UVM this tutorial will be a great way to get caught up on what's new since the OVM 2.1.1.

I'll be in San Jose through Wednesday evening and would love to meet those of you attending the conference. Please flag me down and say hello! You can also follow me on Twitter, or follow the Twitter stream for all DVCon attendees using the #dvcon hash tag.
