Clearly You’ve Never Been to Singapore

(and Other Adventures in Fish Fry Land)

Fish Fry is coming to you from the beautiful island nation of Singapore this week. We’re checking out the best geeky hotpots this fine country has to offer including a visit to GLOBALFOUNDRIES – the second largest independent semiconductor company in the world, a tour of the Funan Digital Life Mall, and some serious LEGO action at the ScienceArt Museum.

Also this week we’re chatting with Tom Tranter (Avnet) and Wendy Lockhart (Microsemi) about their SpeedWay Design Workshops and we’re giving away an ST Discovery Kit courtesy of Newark element14.
