Software Developers to Receive Advanced Sessions at Warpstock

Contact: Gordon Roland, GRoland@ibm.net

Warpstock '99 Atlanta Press Release
September 28, 1999
For Immediate Release

Developers at every skill level will learn new techniques, concepts and real world solutions in the programming sessions at Warpstock. An all-star cast of programming gurus will present a dozen sessions on software development.

First, master programmer Timur Tabi (developer of OS/2's TIMER0, RTMIDI and MPU401 while at IBM) will offer six presentations at both the beginner and advanced levels. Start with Timur's "Introduction to Programming", then stay in your chair for his presentations on Rexx, Assembly language, and programming the Presentation Manager. And don't miss his two-part session on writing Device Drivers, a highlight of Warpstock '99.

Next, join John Urbaniak and Gwen Veneskey, the authors of "Object REXX by Example", for a two part session on programming with Object REXX. In Basic Concepts you'll hear an overview of the many ideas behind object orientation and how to use them. Then you'll want to be there for Advanced Concepts, where you'll learn how to build user-friendly multithreaded GUI applications containing music, sound and animation. John and Gwen work for custom software ISV Aviar, developers of V-Trex and Oz.

Finally, Paul Hethmon of Hethmon Brothers and Inet.Mail fame will present the basics of TCP/IP programming. You'll hear Paul emphasize what's different on OS/2 as opposed to standard BSD style sockets, and you'll hear him cover both client and server side sockets, hostname resolution, TCP/IP 4.1 and 4.2 differences, and a simple C++ socket class to encapsulate it all. Don't miss this presentation on coding for the information superhighway!

Software developers of all levels will find exciting new techniques they can use right now when they attend the premier OS/2 event of this century, Warpstock '99 Atlanta!

OS/2 users from around the world will meet October 16-17 in Atlanta. Visit http://www.warpstock.org for the complete information about this very special OS/2 event.
