 NYJavaSIG "Hello Java" Workgroup Meeting
 Fifteen years after it's initial release Java has become arguably
 the most pervasive programming language on the planet, but how can
 somebody take their first steps into the Java world? In this first
 meeting for those developers with limited experience in Java, we will
 explore its similarities and differences with other general purpose
 languages, demonstrate its syntax, and do a focused overview of its
 object oriented features. Finally, we will discuss suggestions
 for future meetings.

 Subject: [announce] NYCBUG Upcoming

 Several important events upcoming, including this week's meeting.

 *      *       *       *

 February 3rd, 645 pm, Wednesday, Suspenders Restaurant backroom

 Aidan Cully on Systems Programming On A System On A Chip

 Embedded software is characterized by a tight coupling to its
 associated hardware.  This means that there is an ability to reduce
 the hardware and software footprint to the barest version that can
 possibly support the intended applications of the embedded system.  In
 turn, this means that many libraries written for full-featured
 operating systems are not well suited to run in the embedded
 environment, as they often assume a range of system features available
 in common desktop platforms, but unavailable to many embedded systems.

 This talk will emphasize techniques developers can use to make their
 software more suitable for embedded systems.  I will also discuss
 debugging embedded applications, as well as the process of
 co-developing custom hardware, and its associated software drivers.

 Aidan Cully is a software engineer at Arkados, a fabless semiconductor
 manufacturer in Piscataway, NJ.

 *      *       *       *

 There will be a BSD Certification exam and SME session Sunday, February 7th.

 Please contact us for more details.

 *      *       *       *

 BSDCan will be held in May in Ottawa, Canada.
