Speaker: Edward Nutting
7.30pm Main Talk
FlingOS is an unusual operating system - we use C#. In this talk I'll explain why we chose C#; how it can be more effective for teaching than traditional approaches and I'll walk you through some of our code, including bits our compiler, debugger and main kernel.
As part of this talk I'll also touch upon the serious issues with the new Computer Science National Curriculum (for ages 6 to 18) and short falls in teaching at UK universities. For those interested in hearing more on these particular issues, I'll be presenting to BrisTech the following day (December 3rd) at Engine Shed by Temple Meads station.
