Colin Mills will give us an introduction to the C programming language. He writes:
C is the backbone of modern computing. Its a broad statement but I
believe it be true. With roots in almost every operating system on the
planet and having a rich forty year old history C still
stands. Providing both flexibility and simplicity C embodies the
world's first portable abstraction over hardware. Having an idea of
memory and lower level programming concepts helps us in all areas
of our computing lives. Come learn the one of the world's first
"higher level" programming from the basics.
Chris Irwin will discuss his adventures with webOS, the open-source tablet/TV/phone operating system you may have never heard of (but might very well use).
