May 2012 Meeting - Development on Windows 8

May 7, 2012 11:17 by davec

We're meeting tomorrow night at 7p in the CS building (room 204) at Mercer. Our guest speaker is Glen Gordon, the Developer Evangelist at Microsoft. Come out to talk to Glen and to eat a snack or two. 

-- 

"Getting started with Windows 8 development and HTML"

The next version of Windows, code-named Windows 8, will provide unprecedented opportunities for developers, designers and startups. The programming model for building compelling, connected, native apps that harness the full power of the PC will allow HTML5 and JavaScript developers to build native applications on par with Microsoft's traditional technologies. And the new marketplace for distributing these applications gives you a potential paying customer base of more than a billion people.

In this talk, you'll get a hands-on introduction to the next version of Windows, and see how the UI was designed to work seamlessly with a diversity of devices and form factors. We'll cover how to build and design Metro-styled applications, and connect you with tons of resources so you can capitalize on this new opportunity that brings your skills to the next level.

November meeting

November 11, 2011 11:36 by davec

The meeting will be held Tuesday the 15th at 7pm in room 204 in the Computer Science building. There will be refreshments and door prizes. Come out and support the group!

 

 

Using threads to increase application performance of high latency operations

Description:

Many modern IO APIs feature Asynchronous IO routines which can be used to increase responsiveness and throughput, but sometimes we have to use synchronous interfaces. I'm going to present a simulation of a real problem I encountered communicating with a peripheral device and demonstrate several incrementally improved solutions which result in overlapping much of the latency for each operation. Additionally I will present a special purpose message queue created for this purpose and demonstrate its benefits over other message queues in this application.

 

Speaker bio:

Nathan Moore (Zack's brother) currently works at Mercer Engineering Research Center (MERC) in the embedded software division. Before that he worked on firmware for Smart Grid devices.

 

The meeting will be in the Mercer University Computer Science building.
