We'll be having a developers conference Sept 19-21, 2006 in Ottawa. The objective of the conference is to do feature reviews and planning towards the CDT 4.0 release. We'll also discuss new features that we'd like to do that may not be a part of this release but delivered separately.
From Doug's note of 31 July on cdt-dev:
The CDT Fall Summit will be held again this year in Ottawa at QNX headquarters from Sept 19-21. To register, please send me, Doug Schaefer, email@example.com, an e-mail. There is no cost to attend, lunches will be provided, and we’ll do another social night like we did last year sponsored by the fine people at QNX.
The theme for the conference is: “Here we Grow!”, or maybe not. I’ll have to get the QNX marketing guys to come up with something flashy. The focus of the summit will be technical as we look at the features we plan on adding to the CDT for CDT 4.0 and beyond to meet the needs of our growing community. There’s lots going on in the CDT and we need to make sure we co-ordinate activity and maintain the integrity of the architecture.
Here is a quick agenda to get a feel for what we will be discussing:
- CDT Core
- Indexing strategies (offline, remote, EFS)
- CModel future (can we move it to use the DOM parser?)
- CDT UI
- Replacing the C/C++ Projects View with the Common Navigator/Project Explorer
- CDT Editor Enhancements
- CDT Build
- The state of the Managed Build System (VS killer yet?)
- The new Project Model teaching the Core about build settings
- CDT Debug
- Adopting the flexibile hierarchy
- Meeting the needs of embedded developers
- How I built a C# plugin in my spare time
- The Photran experience
Of course, we can add more if people propose to talk about more. Feel free to send me any ideas you have and volunteer to contribute to any of these as well.
QNX is located at 175 Terence Matthews Cres in the city formally known as Kanata (now a suburb of the city of Ottawa). There are a number of hotels in Kanata, with the Holiday Inn Select being the most popular from last year. If anyone has suggestions or queries, please feel free to discuss on the list.
