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.

    Michael Ang
    Itinerant Hacker
    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
   to be combined with application logic coded in JavaScript.
   Complex applications can be built using JavaScript together
   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.

   Michael Ang is a former Netscape software developer who
   first started working on the "Mozilla Classic" code base in
   1998. While at Netscape he worked on the JavaScript
   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
   know! web-team at svlug.org

   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!
