At the upcoming WinnForum's SDR Conference, we will be holding a GNU Radio meetup as well as a few other GNU Radio related activities. Here's the rundown of the events. The conference goes from Nov. 30 to Dec. 3.
First and foremost is the meetup. It's sponsored by Ettus Research, LLC and will be hosted by Matt Ettus and myself. We will be starting with some light hors d'oevres, which will start at 7:30 PM, but the real gathering won't kick off until about 8 PM. The conference is being held in the Hyatt Regency Crystal City, but the exact location is TBD. As part of the conference, information on the location will be available there, and I'll update when I know more. I expect we'll take about an hour to talk and then move on to more exciting talk over beer at one of the local pubs, The Fox and Hound (labeled as Bailey's Pub on Google Maps).
We want to take this opportunity to get to know more about the people working with GNU Radio and about the project they are working on. So while Matt and I will be going over some of our own stuff and perspective on the project, this should be an open forum for anyone to discuss their work and ideas.
There are two sessions that I will be speaking at. The first is on Tuesday afternoon at 3:15 PM on "Open Source in Military and Commercial Wireless Workshop." I'll be speaking on the panel and giving a brief presentation about some of the future projects I'm working on with GNU Radio.
The second session is a tutorial I will be giving on GNU Radio that takes place at 9:50 AM on Thursday. It's not a purely introductory tutorial as we've done in the past. Instead, I will be giving more insight into the programming and design nature of working with GNU Radio. It's designed to help people think more about GNU Radio as an SDR system and the difficulties and challenges associated with it.
I hope to see many of you there!
