Richard Jones' Log: OSDC 2006 is just around the corner

Fri, 01 Dec 2006

Registrations for OSDC 2006 have been so good this year that we've had to stop offering dinner tickets. No sign of the proceedings yet - I'll be ringing the printer on Monday to find out where they're at.

The program is solid. My presentations are finally taking shape. I'm pretty sure I'll put a minimum number of people to sleep.

Anthony's working on his presentations too. He's also using Bruce and madly adding new extensions to it (support for spawning / controlling external processes, added flavour for existing page types, ...) When OSDC is over I'm going to refactor it completely and switch to using pyglet as the core technology. Then we'll be able to switch between window / fullscreen. And a bunch of other things too ;)

Dammit, why didn't you mention that before? I'll be using your original release of Bruce for my presentation and I was planning on badgering you at the conference for some hints on how to improve it.

I guess now I can just sit back and wait for you and Anthony to do all of the work ;-)

Really, people using the original release are far, far saner than myself or Anthony who can't really guarantee that our presentations won't melt down halfway through ;)

I'd still like to see a release of the current SVN code before you start the refactoring. I think it's useful as it is - although the socrates file format is completely half-arsed.
