1 min read
By: Scott Knowlton

The CXL™ Marketing Working Group is working with the Technical Task Force to host a members-only virtual technical training which will cover the CXL 1.1 specification and the in-progress 2.0 specification. Members of the Technical Task Force will provide in-depth courses on selected chapters of the specifications. Following their presentations, the presentation will be open for Q&A discussions. A recording of the presentation will be available to members after the session.

Full agendas and registration details are available in the members-only area of the CXL Consortium website.

If you’re not currently a member, keep reading for more details on how to get involved ahead of the planned technical training sessions.
