MAIN PRESENTATION

TOPICS:  1) Mulit-core ARM Embedded Linux Development and 2) How to Give Lightening Talks 


PRESENTED BY:
  James Briggs and Jesse Monroy

TOPIC SUMMARY:
  James will give us his perspective on embedded development on the ARM architecture. It seems that an increasing amount of development is done for this platform as its low cost and low energy consumption make it well suited for 
  mobile applications.

 Jesse  will tell us how to give a Lightning Talk in 5 to 15 minutes. A Lightning talk is a short presentation given at a conference or similar forum. 
 The length of a talk is usually between 1 and 10 minutes with a 5 minute limit being  common.   Being able to get one's point across in a presentation of about five minutes is a useful skill for anyone,
 especially if working in the technology sectors.

ABOUT THE PRESENTERS:
  James Briggs develops embedded software on the ARM platform. The ARM processor architecture is used on a variety of devices now including the iPad. 
  Early ARMs powered the Apple Newton PDA in the 1990s and now the Apple System on Chips (ARM-based) is used in iPhones. 

 Jesse Monroy will tell us how to give a Lightning Talk in 5 to 15 minutes.  Jesse uses open source software in the development of robots.
