Smartphone and Tablet usage is growing at an exponential rate. The integrated hardware capability on these mobile devices enable use cases that were previously unattainable. However, the current challenge to the industry is in adapting the legacy software to take advantage of these new devices both from a perspective of replicating the functionality on the new platform and enhancing the system to take advantage of the new platform. This is especially challenging for safety critical systems such as medical devices and automotive systems, where determinism is a necessary aspect of the platform.

This months talk describes the design methodology, verification framework and software architecture that was successfully utilized for a project where a Class III (highest level of safety) medical software that was previously housed on a Win CE netbook was ported to an Android 4.1 tablet platform.

Talk is given by Sri who was the former software engineering manager at Boston Scientific for 5 years and a senior research engineer at General Motors for 6 years. He has a Software Engineering MS from Carnegie Mellon and an Electrical Engineering MS from University of Michigan.



All you need is a positive mind, the desire to challenge the status quo and willpower. If you have an internet device or any other technology you wish to share with the group, feel free to bring it, although we can use the equipment at the store.

Apologies in advance as we will have to cap this group at 30 due to the space we have available. To be fair RSVP will be on first come first serve basis. Please keep your RSVP current so others that maybe on the waiting list can still make it. Thanks



NEW NOTE: Please join us for networking at the after event dinner and/or drinks at the highly rated El Gallo Giro nearby !

    Another great Meetup. Great presentation from Sri and we started a great entertaining and informative movie about the rise and fall of Napster. I can't wait to see more.
    Another reminder about JC's upcoming wireframing class. If you are ready to take your Startup, app or website idea to the next level this is the class for you. The class will be a great motivator and force you to spend the time to work on it. This is a hands on workshop. Hope to see you there.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
