Capital District Flex Developer Network May Meeting - New Location
Date and Time
May 4, 2011 06:00 PM - 08:30 PM (GMT-5 Eastern Time US & Canada)
Albany Medical Center 43 New Scotland Ave. Albany, NY 12208
The meeting location is in Hyuck Auditorium which is on the first floor of the A Building. This area is best accessed via the front entrance "The Pillars" or via the Physician's Pavilion entrance on the south side of the hospital. The 60 New Scotland Ave garage (next to Hilton Garden Inn) is designated for patient and visitor parking. Additional ground-level patient/visitor parking is available in the A-bldg Physician's Pavilion (aka 'Blue') lot, located near the front entry to Albany Medical College and accessed from New Scotland as well. Street parking is also available, and there will be no meter fees at that hour.
Glen Culbertson wrote his first program for money in 1968. Since then, both as an academic social scientist and a programer, he has written in many languages, on many operating systems, with many databases and toolkits, for projects in such domains as research control systems, data analysis and statistics, simulations, expert systems, financial analytics and modeling, and business process modeling and implementations. After two decades of working on Wall Steet, he spent most of the last decade working on projects to implement a middle-tier business rules and processing application that implements the Manchester model of concurrent processing with a visual programing language. He recently picked up Flex, largely in order to work on projects in which the design elements would dominate, because Flex promised an effective work-flow cycle from designers working in Flash to developer and back. He has since been striving mightily to get modest mastery of Flash Builder's affordances.
Note the new location. We will be alternating between New Horizons and Albany Med through June, trying them both out. We will choose one as our permanent location starting in the fall.
Food and drink will be served.
This meeting is free and open to the public.
