The Intel company holds a lot of specialist training programs, carries out programming contests, invites people to meetings and free conferences. Unfortunately, we often miss such events, and one gets upset on knowing that he/she did not participate in an already finished event. By the way, participating in Intel contests often ends with a participant being employed by Intel. I have witnessed it a couple of times. A person comes to a meeting to get his/her prize, the next year you see him wearing the "Intel worker" badge himself/herself. So, mind this. :)
