After I tried and could not get out of my head “It’s the most wonderful time of the year”, I decided to focus my attention on the content and the main resources that we share with you, our audience, in 2018. You will learn. Next week, he made the list of the best articles in 2018: he can revisit the main features of 2017 and the main news of the same year for a fun flashback on Friday. For now, see what stands out in our social feeds and in our media resources below.

The most popular webcast of the year: the realities of LM-80 / TM-21 and the establishment of false expectations for life
Once again, as I mentioned in last year’s blog, if I could link them to this webcast presented by Erik Swenson of Nichia and Patrick Durand of Future outdoor Lighting Solutions, I would. But as it happened in May, it expires off the website at six months. Suffice it to say that the number of people interested in signing up for this webcast made it the first word of the year. Swenson and Durand directed attendees to the optimal analysis of the china LED solar light factory life performance test data and how to apply the LM-80 data correctly to product selection and system design decisions. These two great hitters have a combined experience of nearly 30 years in the solid-state lighting industry and are very familiar with the engineering side of product development and achievement standards.

The most popular video of the year: the five main stories of Strategies in Light: February 15, 2018
I’m not surprised that one of our Top 5 stories of stories has had more visits this year.

Top tweet of the year – A compelling conversation with the DLC
It is quite clear that the Twitter audience is committed to DesignLights Consortium and it has a wide scope, since the three most viewed tweets were related to DLC coverage or contributions to the content of the LEDs magazine! The most popular was in relation to the blog where I spoke with Damon Bosetti and Christina Halfpenny about the development of the requirements of the list of qualified products (QPL) for horticultural lighting, and how those plans progressed with the participation of many stakeholders.

The most interesting thing on Facebook: snapshots of the exhibitions at Strategies in Light 2018
Again this year, the trade show takes most of the clicks, shares and reactions on our Facebook page. The “beauty” shots of the product always draw attention to what looks cool and unique in the Strategies in Light exhibitions and this year was no exception, with stands with interesting displays of horticultural lighting, filament lamps in multicolored designs and much more to get attention. If you have not yet considered your registration options for the Strategies in Light 2019 event, please note that the anticipated offer will expire at the beginning of January.

The most interesting thing on the LinkedIn page: IoT webcast question and answer blog with Wirepas experts
I am very happy to see that another blog post came to our mainstream media and social moments this year, with an interesting question answered by industry experts (not a screenshot that can be clicked below). This social activity always provides valuable information about what people are responding to and more things to consider regarding the themes and formats that resonate with people. Our webcasts offer excellent opportunities for tracking blogs, especially during the question and answer period, where attendees ask questions that might be on the minds of others. The Wirepas speakers were interesting and informative about the IoT expansion in commercial buildings, so I definitely encourage you to visit the Internet transmission of smart buildings if you have not yet had the
