Crestron’s annual professional development classes and seminars are designed to help Crestron Service Providers (CSPs) sharpen their skills together. Now in its twelfth year, Crestron Masters—as the event is called—brings some of the best Crestron partners from around the globe together for three days of advanced instruction, hardware and software previews, and discussions with Crestron executives and engineers about hot topics in the industry.
Starting yesterday more than 500 industry professionals converged on the Dolce Palisades (New Jersey) IBM Conference Center campus to brush up on their programming and learn some new tricks and tips. A big part of this year’s class will be an in-depth look at SIMPL#, Crestron’s premier development environment for building powerful and flexible Crestron control system applications.
This year’s Masters promises to be the biggest and best ever. The three-day immersion will kick-off with a keynote by Crestron CEO Randy Klein and CTO Fred Bargetzi, followed by two full days of smaller classes, and a closing ceremony. In addition to a briefing on SIMPL#, attendees will have the opportunity to attend classes on topics such as Crestron Fusion, Smart Graphics, streaming audio and video with DigitalMedia, integrating commercial lighting solutions with building management systems, optimizing the touch screen UI, and much more.The Code Café will offer attendees the opportunity to upload, test, and/or complete the programs they created in class to a Crestron 3-Series Control Processor throughout the week.
Technical Support staff will be available to assist. And the Tech Expo area will be available for attendees to take a hands-on look at many new and interesting Crestron products.
“Masters Classes are for an elite group of valued Crestron integrators and partners who have spent years perfecting their craft,” noted Rich Sasson, Crestron global director of technical Services. “These individuals understand that technology is ever-changing. Masters students take time out of their busy schedules to come to New Jersey for continued education so they can be at the forefront of new technology and products. We applaud them for their commitment to refining their skills and thank them for their continued support and partnership.”
