Our Next Meeting is scheduled for
Thursday, 11 October 2001
Local Attendees of SIGAda 2001 will be speaking on
Highlights of SIGAda 2001
at Lockheed Martin in Rockville, Maryland
An excellent opportunity for those who did not go to the conference to hear about the key happenings!
This will be a joint meeting between the DC and Baltimore SIGAda Chapters
The conference contained much relevant information on the
software engineering of real-time and distributed systems
useful to those building such systems.
The highlights on Thursday night will include the Welcome to SIGAda 2001,
presented by Currie Colket. This welcome includes the infamous section
on How Not To Do Systems Engineering which was well received.
This presentation will compress a week's worth
of knowledge into a valuable packet so you can take
advantage of the technical work
presented at the conference without your actually
attended the conference. Of particular interest to you might be a summary on the Panel Session
on the proposed amendment to ISO/IEC 8652: The Ada Programming Language,
which many people are calling Ada 05.
