SEA Seminar - 20 years with a Free Software Project

This Thursday, October 28th, the Software Engineering Assembly will host a seminar with Chet Ramey of Case Western Reserve University.

Where: Mesa Lab Main Seminar RoomWhen: 3:15 p.m. (refreshments will be served before the seminar)

Chet Ramey has been working on large Free Software projects since 1989. In that time, he has encountered and overcome many novel software engineering issues and problems. This talk will cover twenty years of Bash and Readline development, concentrating on the engineering aspects of creating and distributing widely-used free software. It's a behind- the-scenes look at the somewhat unorthodox way Bash and Readline are produced.

Due to road construction on the "Mesa Mile" you are strongly encouraged to take the shuttle.

Will this event be webcast to the public by NCAR|UCAR?:
