Warpstock '99 Atlanta Press 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!
