TechBites – A Collaborative Community for Engineers

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009 by Michael Barr

Since at least as far back as January 1999, when I wrote a white paper describing the idea to some colleagues, I’ve wanted to participate in a collaborative community for embedded systems design engineers. I felt then, as I do now, that the collective wisdom spread across the community is largely untapped. This feeling was confirmed when I served as editor-in-chief of Embedded Systems Programming magazine, where I tried to turn bits and pieces of your knowledge into articles.

But what if there were a way to reap the benefits of both any willing contributor and an editor able to clean the conversation up, keep things organized, and move threads along? Finally, there is.

A new site launched today called TechBites (http://www.techbites.com) aims to provide a Web 2.0 collaborative community for engineers, where every site member can contribute to the conversation. Yet the site has an impressive list of industry experts already signed up as editors for specific topic-focused communities (e.g., I’ll be helping out with the RTOS and Embedded Medical communities).

At TechBites.com you can:

* Read content including Blogs, Articles, Reviews, and Tech-Tips.
* Create your own content and participate in group discussions.
* Connect with your peers and industry experts.

Join now (it’s free) to take advantage of these opportunities and connect with your friends!

Participate in one or more of the managed communities or start your own user community around a product or technology you know well.
