|After years of development, eCS 2.0 has been released. This session gives an overview of what's in the new version.
|What's new in OS/2 and eCS
|This presentation will focus on
the current SAMBA implementations available under OS/2 and eCS, namely,
Paul Smedley's port of the server, the NetDrive plugin, and the new
EVFS in eCS 2.0. We will discuss connections to SAMBA servers,
including eCS-eCS, eCS-Linux (including Open Enterprise Server),
Linux-eCS, eCS-Windows, Windows-eCS, eCS-Mac, and Mac-eCS connections.
|An overview of available
technologies & drivers, this session will discuss the current state
of GenMAC, the XWLAN widget, native ethernet drivers, and the
forthcoming driver for newer Intel wired adapters. There will be
emphasis on eCS 2.0, but the general scope of this class should be
pertinent to all versions of eCS and Warp 4.
On the agenda: installation, driver updating, stack updates, hardware upgrades, profile management, and general troubleshooting of the networking subsystem.
|Using OS/2 to host a web site
|Installing and configuring AMP.
Administration of the website. Editing and
content tools. Web Applications. Using OS/2 as a router and firewall.
|Selecting the right UPS
|Learn the difference between
output wattage and volt-amps when selecting the proper size UPS for
your computer and electronic equipment, and save costly repairs and/or
replacements when disaster strikes. This is an operating system-neutral
presentation, so please feel free to bring your questions and concerns
about all equipment and OSes.
|List of forums, newsgroups, and
sites that are "current" and active on various OS/2 topics. Meetings
and user groups.

|Available software and
abandonware for OS/2
|What software is available for
What is the status of OS/2 "abandonware" - both major and minor titles?
|Qt is a cross-platform
application and UI framework. Using Qt, you can write applications once
and deploy them across many desktop and embedded operating systems
without rewriting the source code. The Qt toolkit for OS/2
has just been released in beta (Dec, 2009).
|Workshop participants will each
bring a programming problem, and the presenters will attempt to show
how to solve each of the participants' problems. There will be a lot of
individual, one on one work, and the course will be hands-on.
Participants should leave with a working solution, or at least some
progress toward a working solution.
