[vox-announce] Linux Users' Group of Davis - "libcrtxy: Draw lines,Make games"



The Linux Users' Group of Davis (LUGOD) will be holding its next meeting on:

  Monday
  September 15, 2008
  7:00pm - 9:00pm


The meeting will be held at a SPECIAL LOCATION:

  Edward J. Wickson Hall
  Room 2120J
  UC Davis
  Davis, California 95616


Presentation:

  libcrtxy: Draw lines, Make games

  Presented by:
    Bill Kendrick

  The CRT X-Y library (libcrtxy) is a new creation, built on top of
  the Simple DirectMedia Library (libsdl).  It's purpose is to let you easily
  write vector-based games, like those found in arcades in the late
  1970s and early 1980s.  (Space War, Asteroids, Lunar Lander,
  Battlezone, etc.)  It's meant to be scalable from the highest-end
  desktop (eventually supporting OpenGL rendering) down to slow embedded
  systems that lack a dedicated math processor (FPU).

  About the speakers:

    Bill Kendrick is author of numerous open source video games for Linux
    which often find themselves running on a variety of platforms,
    including home game consoles and handheld devices.  He spent much of
    the past 4.5 years of his professional life developing games for
    cellphones.
