Automate 2024

Last week I attended Automate 2024 in Chicago with my wife. I met lots of people and had an amazing time, but it reinforced my memories of how hard it used to be to work these shows. The floors are hard, days are long, and there are always lots of additional activities to attend.

Here is a video of some of the stuff I saw and did. I took lots of pictures and video, a lot of which didn’t make it into this short clip. Hopefully I can repurpose some for other uses.

It was good timing, since I was able to show a lot of Beckhoff stuff to the students I am training in a remote Beckhoff class this week!
