Meetings To Be Scheduled


Company or Organization Presentations:

The following people, companies or organizations have offered to do talks at LUGOD on these various subjects, but a meeting date has not yet been confirmed. Once they have, they'll be moved to our Upcoming Meetings page. (They are ordered alphabetically here, by subject or topic title.)

(Potential speakers, and LUGs looking for speakers, may also wish to check out the SBAY Speakers Bureau, whose goal is to help provide speaker coordination for Silicon Valley Area Open Source groups.)


  • [geek:3] Patrick Stinson - "Embedding Python as a Realtime Audio Scripting Engine"
    Location:

    Topics will include separation and communication between the application and scripting engine, why Python is "safe" for audio work including empirical performance metrics, and caveats related to multithreaded processing as performance requirements increase. I will share my experiences using the standard CPython implementation to research and develop a state-of-the-art scripting engine for the Play commercial sampling engine.

    About the Speaker: Patrick Stinson has a BSc in Computer Science from the University of London and currently lives in the North Lake Tahoe area. He started out working with CPython and Zope/Plone in his home town of Anchorage, Alaska and has most recently developed the user interface and scripting engine for the Hollywood-Based "Play" music platform.

    Play is a commercial audio engine intended for building software musical instruments. It runs in popular audio plugin formats, and provides a scripting engine that allows studio musicians to create complex musical effects and sequencing behavior. It uses Qt for the GUI, juce for audio support, and python for the scripting engine.



  • [geek:3] Bill Braasch, Business Developer, Itemscript - "Itemscript"
    Location:

    Itemscript is a standard provisioning language for rich web applications. It is a simple declarative language based on JSON that describes applications, components, events and data in an open, standard language built on JSON that's independent of the details of any particular implementation. Any component can be swapped out for an independent reimplementation, and all of Itemscript's protocols and APIs are documented. The goal of the project is to provide an easy to learn, easy to use, easy to change application environment based on JSON. On the server, Itemscript exposes elements while hiding the details of the service or access method. On the client, Itemscript provisions pages, widgets and components while hiding the implementation details of the AJAX application.




LUGOD Member Presentations:

The following members of LUGOD offered to give talks or mini-presentations on these various topics, but a meeting date hasn't yet been chosen. Once they are set, they'll be moved to our Upcoming Meetings page. (They are ordered alphabetically, by member's last name.)


Mini-Presentations

Mini-presentations are short (5-15 minute) demonstrations or talks that occur right before the main talk at a meeting. If you'd like to present a 'mini', please let us know: pr@lugod.org.
  • [geek:3] Rod Roark, Sunset Systems - "OpenVZ"
    Location:

    OpenVZ is an operating system-level virtualization technology based on the Linux kernel and operating system. OpenVZ allows a physical server to run multiple isolated operating system instances, known as containers, Virtual Private Servers (VPSs), or Virtual Environments (VEs). It's similar to FreeBSD Jails and Solaris Zones.



  • [geek:2] Doug Barbieri - "VirtualBox"
    Location:

    VirtualBox is an x86 virtualization software package, originally created by German software company Innotek, now developed by Sun Microsystems as part of its Sun xVM virtualization platform. It is installed on an existing host operating system; within this application, additional guest operating systems, each known as a Guest OS, can be loaded and run, each with its own virtual environment. Supported host operating systems include Linux, Mac OS X, OS/2 Warp, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Solaris and FreeBSD (experimental). Supported guest operating systems include NetBSD, DragonFlyBSD, FreeBSD, Linux, OpenBSD, OS/2 Warp, Windows, Solaris, Haiku, Syllable, ReactOS and SkyOS.
