A first-ever tutorial on the Ptolemy software environment was given on
July 24th, 1995, in Arlington, Virginia, at the
2nd Annual ARPA Rapid Prototyping of Application Specific Signal
Processors (RASSP) Conference.
The conference brings together companies, universities, and research
laboratories funded by the
ARPA RASSP Program, from which the
Ptolemy Project receives
about half of its funding.
The tutorial was given by
Brian L. Evans,
Edward A. Lee, and
Mike C. Williamson,
of U.C. Berkeley, and Dave Wilson of Berkeley Design Technology, Inc.
The full-day tutorial was intended for current or prospective users of
the Ptolemy design environment.
Although we included a brief introduction to the user-level interface
to the system, the tutorial emphasized extending the system.
The tutorial followed the schedule given below.
A glossary of terms (from the User's Manual)
was distributed to the participants.
The tutorial was originally written in FrameMaker, and has been converted
to compressed Postscript for previewing.
Last updated 8/7/95.
