April is with us, and it's time for another post in our Developer's Crush series. Another story of success with the help of our products.
We have been asking you all to share why you like using our products, and stories are coming in every day. Today we decided to share how one university professor is teaching students and his own grandsons with our development boards, compilers and Click boards.
Three lives, one passion
Dr. Phillip M. Adams, one of our users, was kind enough to share his thoughts on why he likes using our products. He claims that to answer the questions fully, he needs to separate his life into three parts: as an academic, his role in research, and as a grandfather.
In his academic life, MikroElektronika products are used every day. Since, he holds guest lectures in various universities around the world (in Australia, the U.S., and Norway to name a few) and he regularly visits and holds lectures at the Tra Vinh University in Vietnam. At the aforementioned university in the field of computer engineering and applied computer science, our tools come handy when working with students. As he says:
"I am helping to grow TVU's engineering and computer-related faculties. I also teach legal courses to faculty and students on IP. As a matter of fact, I just finished packing over 10 mikromedias, over 100 clicks, a couple of EasyMx PRO v7s, and much much more for my upcoming trip to TVU during the holidays."
Dr. Adams also holds over 100 patents in various fields. That is why he likes to focus on sharing the knowledge about registration of patent right, and intellectual property when he visits the Tra Vinh University.
And how have our products helped him in the process of developing a patent? Here is what he says about it:
"I find that much of the initial research, on many of my inventions, begins with MikroElektronika products - from development platforms to clicks to the glue (software) that holds them together."
Great tools for teaching his grandsons
Like we mentioned in the beginning, there are three sides to this story since Dr. Adams takes three different roles in his life. We choose the sweetest one for the end.
"Two of my grandsons have an interest in computers/electronics. I find it far easier to teach them with click boards than with chips, wires and soldering irons."
That is exactly what we enjoy to hear because this was the idea behind the creation of Click boards, and the mikroBUS™ standard - that people will have a chance to use embedded tools with ease and to teach others.
We hope that such success stories will inspire you to do similar things in your life.
