BGLUG Meeting Tues. Apr. 4, Joe Tomato's

Our April meeting is this Tuesday, 7pm. NOTE: this month's meeting is at Joe Tomato's in Owen Sound, not our usual meeting place. Click for Google Map. We meet in the back room. Bring beer/pop/food/dessert money.

Andrew's presentation will focus on Alan Turing's definitions of the m-machine and universal machine. Turing's definitions led to Von Neumann promoting the IAS computer. IBM copied and improved the IAS computer and the result is what we have on our desks and in our pockets (ridiculously simplified timeline!). If you have a laptop bring it on Tuesday night. Below are some links that will be useful during the presentation.

Of course, the real highlight of our meetings are the tech talk, free software exchange and open source ideas. See you on Tuesday at Joe's.
