well, it is, but you still need to tell DCE that you want to be a sink for those events.. (not just your own)
Once you've registered the interceptor, dealing with those events is trivial.

I'll touch base on this in DCE 101. (and maybe possibly some examples)

Bulek,

well, we're getting closer to that as we speak.  I'm sure we can add another wrapper to implement those functions into Ruby.  I've looked at the code, it's in generic_Serial_Device, and the wrappers look straight forward.

HTH,

Dan

Ok, We're ready to do this.

Date: Saturday, April 19, 2008
Time: 12:00 PM MDT (GMT -7)
Webconference: GSD/Ruby 101

We've found a serious bug in the Flash plugin for linux, the sample rate gets screwed up, so we can't use ANYTHING flash for audio.

For audio, you need to install Skype.  (has very good linux and windows support.  This is not negotiable.)

To be invited to the conference, add me as a contact in Skype.  My email is dan.damron@techengine.ca

For Desktop/Presentation, we will be using dimdim. (www.dimdim.com)

DimDim is a browser based webconferencing system which allows (currently windows only) full desktop sharing, along with powerpoint presentations.

Now, I will be hosting the conference in a virtual box, and I've tested this combination successfully.

Thom Cherryhomes (TSCHAK) is going to record the webconference, both audio and video. 

See you all Next Saturday!

Regards,

Dan Damron

Hi Dan

just a question: can you already estimate how long will last the webconference?

This is just to properly arrange things .... 12.00 PM in Calgary will be 08:00 PM here where I live, and I have to start early to convince my wife not to make special plans for saturday night ...

Thanks and regards

I'm blocking 2 hours, but 1/2 of that is Q&A.
so, the demo will be about 1 hour, once everything is said and done.

HTH,

Dan

Hi Dan and thanks for your reply

I just happened to read the official announcement of the webconference here -> http://www.linuxmce.org/news.php?id=23#comments

It is stated that webconference will start at 2.00 PM, while in the forum you said it will be at 12.00 PM.

Can you confirm which is the correct one?

TIA and regards

Marco

The conference will start at 12:00PM MDT, or 2:00 PM EDT (Same time, different zone)

Also:  for everyone:  I will need your email addresses to add you to the dimdim webconference!

Sorry about that, I forgot to mention that.

If you have already added me via skype, I have accepted your responses (5 so far), just make your email address visible via skype.

I believe Skype also has a 10 or 25 user limit on conference calls, I'll dig into that further.

All the best,

Dan Damron

I'm sorry i couldn't make the first one.  I had some family stuff pop up right after i had spoke with you in IRC Dan.  Hopefully Thoms recording software didn't blowup this time cuz i'd really like to see what ruby has to offer.  Sounds pretty cool.

Well, the Webcast was a success,

I had set another machine up to record here.  However, we DID have a software crash (webconferencing software DimDIm) and I didn't get a chance to reconnect the recording PC.
This is almost a 2 person job, 1 to record, and 1 to host.

Sorry if I do it only now, but I would like to say a big "Thank You guys" to Dan and Thom for last saturday webconference.

From my point of view it was really a success, and even if we had a minor problem with desktop sharing sw I think that this is the proper approach this matter.

Looking forward to partecipate to next GSD webconferences

Thanks again
Marco

MarcoZan,

I'm glad you found it helpful!  Thom really stepped up to the plate with his help in the webconference.  Coding is hard enough to do without commenting on what your coding.
With Thom's help, this allowed me to concentrate on the actual code, and not worry about explaining it, as I knew Thom would do that for me.

It's too bad we couldn't get the recording working..  I'll try to put together a recording locally here and put it up.

I'd like to put it to you guys on what the next conference should be:

DCE 101 - A Closer look at Data, Commands, and Events
Ruby 101 - A Closer look at Ruby (structures, classes, methods)

Both of these have REALLY good info, and lots of hint's and hidden gotcha's.

maybe someone could make a youtube channel for linuxmce? then save conferences and instructional videos/demonstrations, like thom has done, to that channel. then it could all be in once place for people to look through. if not youtube maybe another video blog kinda place?

Just to say, thanks to watching this i was able to get my Rako kit working :) At the moment its really basic code to "just get it to work" but will be going back over it to add checking and anything else i can think of (the blasted off commands issue for one  >:( )

I'll pop a wiki page up sometime this week with my code.

Looking forward to the next conference, i'll try and add something to it this time (got a list of why dont this works :) )
