The highlight presentation at the ALE Central Meeting
for Thursday, Oct. 15th, 2009 at 7:30pm will be:
“Application Development with QT 3.3”
featuring “KSDB” as presented by the wildly illusive
but always engaging Charles Shapiro
— Join our guide, Charles Shapiro, as he leads us through the evolutionary
process of coding an exciting new open source application, replete with bold
side-excursions through the wilds of QT 3.3 and C++. Wear your ties [as
a headband] and watch as Charles becomes either the Hero (It Works!)
or the Goat (It Crashes!) with a live demo of his new QT intensive database
form designer on his KDE laptop. In an audacious climax he will then do
what Bill “Greedy Guy” Gates could never do: SHOW YOU THE CODE!
The epilogue will be a tearful, impassioned plea for help and support from
you, the beneficent bug hunting audience. Come learn and participate
as History is Made!
— Charles Shapiro is a fan of fencing, gadgetry, juggling, gizmos,
beer brewing, obscure weaponry, radio control (in all it’s connotations),
and most anything else the that lesser world might consider “geek”.
Consistent to these avocations he has been a professional programmer
for over 12 years, specializing in C and Unix with a couple years of
C++, Perl and a plethora of Python in the mix. He can type faster than
most people can talk, is a Linux Lunacy Cruise alumnae, a liberty
minded friend of the EFF, an officially sanctioned Richard Stallman
impersonator for the FSF, and a seriously committed GNU Linux
zealot since 1996.
We will be meeting at Emory Law School in our
usual Gambrel Hall, room 1C venue.
Meeting time frame is 7:30pm to ~9:30pm
