Dear Readers and Friends of Free Software,

On 5/30/11 (Sunday) there was the fifth seminar, thus completing the circle of free seminars on the ARDUINO open source electronic platform. Specifically, at the fifth seminar I presented my thesis whose subject is the following:

Network implementation of wireless radio communication between two embedded nodes (identification node ​​and control node) for the remote control of devices via digital identification and recognition of physical objects using the Arduino platform.

I feel I must express a very big thank you to the Association of Greek Users and Friends of FS / OSS, especially the living people behind it who are perfectly respectable and cooperative personalities, open minded and with a progressive dynamic potential, giving me the opportunity through this cycle of free workshops to distribute freely my knowledge and my experience on the world of Embedded Systems.

Sincerely,

Efstathios Chatzikyriakidis

The Association of Greek Users and Friends of Free Software / Open Source Software invites you to the new presentation in the new round of free courses and presentations organized with a view to deepening the knowledge and alternative use and exploitation of FS / OSS:

Fifth Seminar on the Open Source Platform ARDUINO about:

Network implementation of wireless radio communication between two embedded nodes (identification and control node) for the remote control of devices via digital identification and recognition of physical objects using the Arduino platform.

Important Notice: It is necessary to attend this seminar for obtaining certifications by those who attended the Arduino seminars organized by the GreekLUG in the year 2010 – 2011.

The presentation will be made by the Informatics Scientist and Communications Engineer as well as Arduino hacker, Efstathios Chatzikyriakidis on what is the first thesis based on the Arduino in Hellas.

The event will take place at 17:00 on Sunday, May 29, 2011 in the Computer Laboratory of the Department of Economics, University of Macedonia.

The Free Software / Open Source Software Association (FS / OSSA) recently organized a conference entitled “Open Source: Opportunity Development” in various cities. Also, last Sunday (22/05/11), I had the opportunity to attend the one-day workshop held at the University of Macedonia in Thessaloniki.

Thoughts on Automatic Software Repairing and Genetic Programming

In the field of Software Engineering enough emphasis is given on the development of methodologies and mechanisms for the design of optimal software systems. Moreover, the quality of a software system can be assessed by carrying out appropriate metrics. Key features under study during the evaluation of a system are reliability, stability, security, portability and usability. The quality of a software system depends mainly on the time spent, expenses made, debugging and testing techniques used etc.
