Software Developers Cartel

January 19, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


An on-going series of Mini-conferences and meetups about current trends, methods and frameworks in software development – from new advanced hardware devices to a simple app, using an awesome framework to build a web app in no time or hacking an AR Drone in javascript. Developers having fun practicing their craft, and learning new stuff.

Our purpose is to create a space where developers form can come and share their professional and personal experiences with any technology available. By sharing this experience, we hope to create, maintain and grow a community of curious and passionate developers while fostering and promoting best practices in software development and dev frameworks/tools.

This month we have two very special presentations. Texas Instruments, NASA JSC-Control and Data Handling Branch, T STAR, the Electronic Systems Engineering Technology Program (ESET), and DVDT, the capstone team from Texas A&M’s ESET Program, will present Modular Integrated Stackable Layers (MISL): A fast way to do rapid product development!

Based on a generous gift from Texas Instruments, the ESET Program will be procuring a number of the most popular MISL Architecture Layers in quantities that will significantly reduce the cost associated with a “starter kit” (Power, Intelligence, Communications, Breakout) of these space qualified, rack-and-stack printed circuit boards. By “stacking” the layers, software developers can be developing and testing code on day one. This talk will provide a background on the MISL Architecture, how it is being supported through the NASA/ESET development partnership, the TI support of the propagation of the technology to hi-reliability environments, the use of the architecture in project such as T-SAT and the plan to support the deployment of the kits by ESET.

We are also very fortunate to have doctoral student Ryan N. Bledsoe and her husband, Julian Peterson, traveling from Dallas to present “Making Music with E-Textiles.” Microcontrollers and conductive fiber make embedding sound and light into textile projects possible. Creating e-textile music instruments allows many new ways for people of all ages to interact with sound. Join us as we talk about our projects and the implications for music making, coding, and design.

Presentations start at 6:30pm (doors open at 4:30pm)
