Before you send the kids back to school and call the summer over, it's time once again for another DVClub lunch. As always, this is a free catered lunch with plenty of opportunity to learn about what's going on in the local verification community. Come catch up with old friends and colleagues, meet new friends, and network with others in the industry. Special thanks once again to our DVClub Sponsors for making this event possible.

This time around we will be pleased to hear from a member of the Austin chapter of DVClub, John Dickol. John is a Principal Engineer at Samsung's Austin R&D Center (SARC) where he is defining and implementing verification tools and methodologies. John will be talking about an extremely timely and useful topic, continuous integration tools. If you aren't already using a tool such as Jenkins, you'll definitely want to check this out. If you are already doing it, John will discuss how to 'take it to the next level' by discussing the evolution of various advanced usage models that go well beyond the standard use case. If you are interesting in learning how to make your group more productive, you won't want to miss this.

As summer winds down and football season starts up, it's time once again for another DVClub lunch. As always, this is a free catered lunch with plenty of opportunity to learn about what's going on in the local verification community. Come catch up with old friends and colleagues, meet new friends, and network with others in the industry. Special thanks once again to our DVClub Sponsors for making this event possible.

Of course you tell your boss that keeping you around will save him money in the long run because of all the bugs you find, right? Conventional wisdom is that bugs cost 10X more at each development stage. This is often cited to justify tool purchases and methodology changes. Where does that 10X come from? And if we have actual data about the cost of bugs, how can it help? Ken Albin from Oracle will be here to answer these questions and more with his presentation "The Cost of SoC Bugs." Perhaps you might even get the ammunition you need for that next big raise!

In addition to the lunchtime presentation from Ken, we have an optional tutorial immediately following for those who wish to stay and enhance their skillset. Avery Design Systems will be teaching how to improve “Gate Simulation signoff” throughput by handling the noise from False X’s.

This will be another awesome event, we look forward to seeing you there!
