	CLUG Programmers' Special Interest Group Meeting - 11th September 2008

Date:		11th September 2008 (Second Thursday of the month)

Time:		19:00 - 21:00 (or when it finishes)

Speaker:	Rusty Russell

		Rusty will be giving two talks about C programming. 
		The first will be an introduction to the new CCAN
		project (http://ccan.ozlabs.org/). No, it's not the
		Canadian Cancer Action Network, it's the Comprehensive
		C Archive Network - a repository for useful C libraries.
		CCAN is a new project trying to organise code out of
		people's junk directories and into useful service. 
		The second will be his proposed "libantithread"
		library, first mentioned at the LCA 2008 lightning
		talks. This aims to be a library to allow people to do
		multiprocessing without using threads, because we all
		know from Tridge's keynote talk at LCA 2005 that
		threads are evil. We haven't heard much more about it
		since then, so this may the first time we get to see
		libantithread working. 

Venue:		Looking Glass Studios
		Meet at Cafe Essen at 18:00 (see map) for socialising before
		going on to the Looking Glass Studios training room at 
		19:00 for the talk, and finding somewhere to go for dinner by 
		consensus afterwards.


If you would like to give a talk at a future meeting, please email me.
