The Best of the Best: Digilent Design Contest Worldwide Finals 2014

To me, one of the most enjoyable company events is being a judge for the Digilent Design Contest US each year. I get to meet the talented students who are involved and play around the innovative applications powered by Digilent hardware. As Digilent boards are used worldwide, the Digilent Design Contest is also held worldwide in Europe, Japan, and China. Every two years, Digilent will bring top teams from each region to compete for the world championship. This year, the worldwide finals were held at the Digilent China Training Center in Shanghai.
