AmiWest 2016 DevCon
It all starts with downloading and installing the AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition SDK. See AmiWest Setup for complete details on how to get ready.
We are aiming to cover the following topics:
- A detailed tour of AmigaOS 4 with tutorials. We will be going through the Amiga Future programming articles by Michael Christoph. If you'd like to get a jump on them see the Amiga Future Programming Articles.
- The anatomy of an Amiga disk device driver. We will be dissecting the p5020sata.device which is a SATA device driver used in the upcoming AmigaOne X5000. This isn't just any custom made driver. It is melding between Linux libata and the traditional AmigaOS trackdisk device drivers.
- Hans de Ruiter will be presenting his tutorials on Warp3D Nova. For anyone that wants to program for Warp3D Nova be sure to obtain/borrow/steal a card for the DevCon. See the Warp3D Nova press release for assistance on choosing a card.
- Personal Projects. You are encouraged to bring your own personal projects to the DevCon where we, as a group, may be able to help you out.
The DevCon will also be tailored to the group. If something is not interesting we can skip it and move on to something that is interesting. Class participation and feedback during the DevCon is strongly encouraged.
Here is the tentative schedule for the Dev Con.
