Don't you hate it when your Tivo or DVR stops working, and your favorite TV shows don't get recorded? You go on vacation or work late, and come back to find your favorite episodes have vanished.
Sometimes this happens with websites too. You get caught up with the nice weather outside, the cook-outs, exercising, walking your pet. Time passes and you miss good stuff on your favorite sites, such as ControlGlobal.com.
Well, don't worry. I'm here to catch you up.
First, if a new job is on your mind, stop by Control Connections (http://jobs.controlglobal.com). This month we launched our very own jobs newsletter. Sign up to receive it, and you'll get monthly listings of the latest industry career opportunities. Check our first jobs newsletter at www.controlglobal.com/ControlJobCentral.html.
Also, ControlGlobal.com has opened a sustainability portal, where you can read white papers and articles, listen to podcasts, and watch online videos. These resources can help you define and understand sustainability for the process industries. Go to www.controlglobal.com/knowledge_centers/sustainability.html.
And, did you know that Andrew Bond, author of the Industrial Automation Insider, has his own page on our site? His monthly newsletter covers industry automation news and issues as seen from the U.K., and you can read his reports at www.controlglobal.com/extras/AndrewBond.html.
Webcasts are another good way to keep up. You can see our entire webcast library on our site. Watch "Connect to Any PLC using NI LabVIEW," and learn how to create tags in OPC servers and use OPC client connectivity to communicate between NI LabVIEW and PLCs. This webcast is available at www.controlglobal.com/industrynews/2010/126.html.
Or, watch our webcast, "Consider the True Cost of Automation," and learn how to put process automation costs in the context of a system's full lifecycle, matching system capabilities against application performance, engineering and maintenance requirements. Watch this webcast at www.visualwebcaster.com/event.asp?id=69374.
These are some of the latest resources we have available on our site. Stop any time and catch up with all the information you' have missed so far. Read our SoundOff!
