At work we often have seminars on technical subjects during lunch. I have been promising to give one on MF, but have been too busy finishing a project. The project has now ended, and the next one will not be crazy for a few months, so it is time to deliver on my promise.
The seminar will be attended by research scientists. Most are able to program, but most do not program on a regular basis. There are a few embedded programmers, but mostly in exotic areas such as signal processing. Everyone will be an expert in some area of physics, quantum mechanics, signal processing, or high speed networking.
The seminar will be about an hour, and I want to keep it light. I want get a few people interested/hooked, and then follow up with an informal course. I want to focus on Gadgeteer.
I know people have posted presentation links before, but I can’t find them.
Can someone point me to some PowerPoint presentations I can tailor to my audience?
Mine is probably not very useful to you. My objective is primarily to inspire others to give it a try and not fill their heads with too many technical details since my audience is mostly software devs that have never touched a soldering iron.
This version turned out to be entirely too long and will be getting a facelift in the next couple weeks as I trim it down to a 50 min presentation while at the same time adding some new demos.
All hail the modern forefathers of American Geek!! I am humbled with the thought that a slide from my presentation may make its way in front of this brain trust, regardless of what corporate incarnation you currently are.
JOVIAL is a high-level programming language based on ALGOL 58, specialized for developing embedded systems (specialized computer systems designed to perform one or a few dedicated functions, usually embedded as part of a larger, more complete device, including mechanical parts). It was a major system programming language through the 1960s and 1970s.
JOVIAL was developed as a new "high-order": 1 programming language starting in 1959 by a team at System Development Corporation (SDC) headed by Jul...
Your question seemed odd to me. To me Erlang relates
to Erlang B units and telephony traffic. I could not understand
what that had to do with porting to NETMF.
So I Googled, and found out the Ericsson had developed
a programming language Erlang. I guess your question
was not odd, just in an unfamiliar context.
Erlang is on the porting list right after Jovial.
I have a friend who is an Erlang fanatic. I’ve heard the whole Ericsson Erlang story many times. I thought just maybe you’d been there long enough to have been around at that time. Then I would have a story to tell him Actually, I went ahead and told him about you at tonight’s functional programming users’ group meeting. Erlang is very impressive.
