The most popular community event here in South-East Europe is definetly KulenDayz. This year I am very exciting because I will be there. But this year has more, regional CEE MVP summit will be organizing there too.
The Microsoft Community Osijek in coordination with Microsoft Croatia and INETA are organizing the regional community conference KulenDayz 2012. Conference is bringing together leading IT Experts from the region with local IT Community and giving them a chance to spend a weekend filled with attractive sessions presented by top speakers and relaxing at Kopacki Rit Nature Park and enjoying unspoiled nature. Event will be held at Hotel Patria in Beli Manastir, 20 min. drive from Osijek, from 31. august to 2. spetember 2012.
On the other hand CEE sumit gathering MVPs from CEE and Italy to spend three days togehter, sharing knowledge and experience. This year is very important because all main Microsoft products: Windows 8, Visual Studio 2012, Office 2013 will be released, so they will have a lot of to talk each other.
Saturday, 1. september is main day, which will be organizing 5 diferent tracks with sessions about Development, Database, Private Cloud, Office 365, Project Managment, Chat / Talk and slot dedicated to MVP Summit.
I will be speaking about GPdotNET my artifical inteligence C# open source project. Here is a short introduction about the session, date and time.
Title: GPdotNET – Darwian’s teory of evolution in solving engineering problems by C#
GPdotNET is artificial intelligence tool for applying Genetic Programming and Genetic Algorithm in modeling and optimization of various engineering problems. It is .NET (Mono) application written in C# programming language which can run on both Windows and Linux based OS. This tool started in 2006 within postgraduate project for modeling and optimization with evolutionary algorithms. Project contains several C# libraries with Genetic programming implementation algorithms and Windows Forms application for graphical and visual results presentation. GPdotNET also support parallel processing for multicore processors based on ParallelFx library. Started from the version 2.0, GPdotNET is multiplatform application with 100% the same code for .NET and Mono 2.8. The Session will present various implementations behind this application i.e. parallel processing implementation, memory pooling for fast memory object access, compatibility between Mono 2.8 and .NET 4. Beside C# knowledge this application requires knowledge from Math, Evolutionary algorithms, and Engineering. Several master and PhD thesis are successfully applied GPdotNET in modeling, and some of these real examples will be presented during this session.
So if you like rock/roll C# programming you are welcome :).
See you there.
