TerraSwarm Programming the Swarm Workshop
May 27 - 29, 2015
8:30am - 5:00pm. Swarm Lab, 490 Cory Hall, UC Berkeley


This workshop is designed to be a hands-only, intensive workshop for a limited number of coders. Attendees will develop Accessors using Vert.x and Node.js. At the conclusion of the workshop, attendees will be able to create their own accessors.

This workshop is by invitation only. Members of the accessors workgroup may request permission to attend. Requests will be evaluated based on space availability and coding experience.

This is *not* a testbeds meeting. The focus will be on coding, not hardware.

May 27: One day intensive hands-on introduction to designing and using accessors for building swarmlets. Prior experience with JavaScript and XML is helpful. The Homework is essential.

May 28-29: Two day intensive teamwork on extending the accessors framework to provide access to new devices and services. Prior experience with Java/Eclipse and/or Node.js is helpful.


The agenda is posted here. Note that day 2 still has some open slots. Please make suggestions.
