Project Vista: T-30

We're actually slightly less than 30 days away from moving in to our new building at Draper's Vista Station! Just a couple of days ago I had a chance to walk through the space with a handful of colleagues for a 1st hand preview. I took UTA bus F514 from our Draper Lone Peak office to the Draper Frontrunner train & bus station, which is right next door to our new building. I'm sure I'll be taking that route again in the future. It was exciting and impressive to see the new space in-person! Here are the pictures I took . . .

  1. Was Googling results of the new building and found this. Very cool. I really liked EMC under your leadership. I miss it!

  2. The effectiveness of IEEE Project Domains depends very much on the situation in which they are applied. In order to further improve IEEE Final Year Project Domains practices we need to explicitly describe and utilise our knowledge about software domains of software engineering Final Year Project Domains for CSE technologies. This paper suggests a modelling formalism for supporting systematic reuse of software engineering technologies during planning of software projects and improvement programmes in Final Year Project Centers in Chennai.
