Presenting poster at WWDC Scientific Poster Session
I am about to head out to Apple's annual Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco. This is my first trip out there and I look forward to filling in the holes in my Cocoa understanding with the sessions, as well as working with Apple engineers to resolve some nagging issues with programs I'm maintaining.
On top of the developer training and interaction, I will have a chance to show off some of the hardware and software design behind SonoPlot's Microplotter robotic fluid handlers (what I do during the day). The control elements of these systems are designed around Apple computers, specifically the Mac Mini and iMac, they use Firewire for video capture from attached CCD cameras that track the dispensing head on the robot, and all control software is written in Cocoa (Leopard-only, due to some specific features used in the implementation). For those in attendance who read this before then, the session is from 6:30 PM - 10:30 PM on Wednesday, June 11. Please do stop on by to chat if you are interested.
After WWDC, Apple will post PDFs of the posters, as well as short podcasts from the presenters about their work. I'll update this post with the links to that when they become available.
