Tomorrow, I will be traveling to South Africa to present at the Wind River Aerospace & Defence Seminars which will be held in Pretoria and Cape Town next week.
I'm really looking forward to the events, as we will be covering some interesting topics including the latest trends in Aerospace & Defence, including Safety and Security. This will also be the my first opportunity to present some new Wind River A&D customer case studies, which I hope the audiences will find interesting and informative. In the afternoons, we'll be providing some technical deep-dive sessions on Multicore, Virtualization and Hypervisor technologies, VxWorks 6.6 safety certification, and Wind River Linux. So it's a pretty packed agenda.
I'm also looking forward to seeing the scenery again which is stunning, particularly around Cape Town and Stellenbosch. Thunder City, on the outskirts of Cape Town, has three operational English Electric Lightnings, which is my all-time favourite military fast jet. It would provide the ideal way to see Table Mountain and The Cape in real style, but unfortunately, that's not part of the seminar programme. (For some interesting facts and anecdotes on the Lightning, the Wikipeda entry is well worth reading!).
