You know that thing in the Metreon? The video game that's projected
onto the floor, where you can run around and "kick" objects, and they
bounce around? http://westfield.com/metreon/
Turns out it's written in Perl. Our own Steve Fink will talk
about how he used XS and OpenGL to accomplish the task. This will be
a highly technical talk.
If time allows, we will visit the Metreon afterwards; it's right near
BART. If not, we'll make that a field trip for a future meeting.
BGI will once again be sponsoring Little Star pizza. :D
Merci beaucoups to Steve for appearing out of nowhere and offering
to do this talk! It should be a fun one.
Time: 8:00 p.m. We will try to start on time, in a break with
RSVP: Jeff.Thalhammer at barclaysglobal.com
Date: November 28 (two weeks from Tuesday)
Place: BGI, 45 Fremont St.: http://tinyurl.com/pzq9f
