There are so many electronic products and news publications today. I was wondering as an electrical engineer what publication do you read? Which one would you recommend to a young engineer starting in the field? And third, do you prefer print or digital?
The only ones I really pay any attention to are IEEE Spectrum (along with related publications) and EE Journal (formerly FPGA Journal). If I'm looking at a more in depth topic, I personally prefer print, which is why I like the Spectrum. Often when something is put in print, it means it's worth paying to lay it down in ink, so I often pay a little more attention. If I am reading commentary about some current topics I prefer to just consume the tidbits in digital format. In any instance I very much dislike digitized versions of print magazines. The only digital "magazine" that I have found quite readable and interesting is EEWeb Pulse. It has a nice feel and flow for on screen reading.
Thanks, actually never heard of EE Journal or EEWeb Pulse. Took a quick look at EE Web Pulse. You are right about the "feel and flow" on the screen,
Or one of the classic's for young engineers... http://circuitcellar.com/ Print, over Digital, as it's just easier to read printstock over any current lcd/tablet/etc..
I recommend a membership in IEEE. You will gain alot of benefits, IEEE Spectrum, Email Alias, invitations to Webinars, sometimes they present free online courses in different fields, they also recommend books to buy it and announces for comming conferences.
The 2nd IEEE International Energy Conference and Exhibition - ENERGYCON 2012 will take place in Florence, Italy on 9-12 September 2012. The first ENERGYON in Bahrain in 2010 gathered over 1200 energy professionals. I hope if i can attend ENERGYON 2012 this year.
