[svlug-announce] SVLUG meeting Wed, 5 December, 7 pm.: Mozilla
Thu Nov 29 13:27:01 2001
We're pleased to announce the next meeting of SVLUG, this coming
Wednesday. Special this month: Come and meet the *new* Speaker
Here's information on the speaker.
Wednesday, 5 December 2001, 7pm-9pm or so.
Building Applications with Mozilla and XPCOM
The output of the Mozilla project is not just a browser;
it's also a complete, cross-platform application framework.
At the core of this framework is XUL, a user interface
description language that allows UI described in XML
with scriptable XPCOM components that provide access to such
tasks as network communications, file I/O and manipulating
cookies. This talk will provide an overview of how to write
a complete application inside Mozilla, with particular focus
on how to create reusable XPCOM components.
MORE ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Michael Ang is a former Netscape software developer who
first started working on the "Mozilla Classic" code base in
interpreter, the XPIDL compiler and XPConnect. His
activities since then include kernel/device driver hacking
for the PA-RISC Linux port and continued involvement with
Cisco Building 9.
The land of NUMBERS. The VINEYARDS conference center.
The side we are on is the Silver Oak/Jordan conference rooms,
where a large Cisco fountain is usually not turned on.
Directions on how to get there are listed at:
We've tried our very best for these directions to be accurate.
If you have any improvements to make, please let our Web Team
It's best if you arrive close to on time, as otherwise
there may not be someone posted at the door to let you in.
After the speakers end their presentation there is usually
a Q&A session, time for job seekers and employers to meet,
and often a few door prizes.
When the meeting is over people are encouraged to chat a bit,
but also to exit the building so Cisco can lock up. Don't
worry, a lot of us go to dinner afterward so there's plenty
of time to chat outdoors or offsite.
We look forward to seeing you there!
