New presentations for Warpstock 2002
August 26, 2002 by Luc Van Bogaert
Time is running out on our sale on registration at the Warpstock Store on BAMart (Bank of America eStores). You only have less than 3 weeks to register at the reduced rate! Don't Delay Register Today!
Time is also running out on reserving a room at the 4 star Renaissance Hotel in Austin. Our block of rooms and rate is only assured until September 13th. The hotel is expected to be completely booked that weekend due to weddings and such, so make sure that you have a room and that you can enjoy all the after-hours discussions that are so much a part of Warpstock as the presentations and giveaway.
Four new presentations have been added to the Warpstock 2002 schedule:
* Migrating from NetBios to TCPbeui, by Oliver Mark.
* OS/2 Device Driver Programming - What You Don't Find In The Books, by Daniel Engert.
* Remote-booting eComStation from eComStation, by Micho Durdevich.
* Remote-booting Windows And Linux from eComStation, by Micho Durdevich.
Also note this important scheduling change as well:
* Java 2 Standard Edition, release 1.4 by Greg Shaw.
Find out how this very important announcement is going to effect you.
While IBM is reviewing it's storerooms for OS/2 stuff to giveaway, take a look at all the speakers they sent us! We will be the first event where you can talk to Greg Shaw from Golden Code regarding the Java 1.4 release which should make OS/2 J2EE compatible. We all need to know where Mozilla is going, so Mike Kaply of IBM
and Achim Hasenmüller of Innotek will tell us how this important development will proceed in the future.
If you use ATAPI/IDE devices and were unable to install OS/2, the chances are that you owe a debt of gratitude to this person: Daniela Engert author of the very popular 'DANI' device drivers that have made OS/2 compatible with hundreds of computers that IBM didn't support. Daniela is making her second visit to Warpstock in the US, and this time she will be telling us about her experience in developing OS/2 device drivers. Even if you don't program device drivers, you should come on down and say thanks to Daniela. We also expect Timur to continue his regular device driver series.
We have also narrowed down our search for where to have the Warpstock Saturday Night Social. It should be Texas-style BBQ! And because we should be traveling a bit out of Austin, and the places are small, we will NOT sell more than 50 tickets to this event, so book it soon at our e-store.
If you want to learn the latest information about OS/2 and eComStation, then come to Warpstock 2002, which this year is taking place in the home of OS/2 development. Warpstock will take place the weekend of October 5-6, 2002 in Austin, Texas at the Renaissance Austin Hotel.
