Bruce writes C# programs that control industrial machines. His software controlled the creation of the Strati (the world’s first 3D printed car) and is shaping turbine blades at GE Aviation. He's currently working on systems that will turn precision watch parts in France, cut battery components in China, mill bearing races in Ohio, and cut boat parts in South Carolina.
He is one of the best software engineers in the world in this particular specialty – and will be sharing many of his most effective techniques with you!
• An efficient application architecture for machine control.
• Robust communication with motion controllers and other devices.
• WPF techniques for screens that operators (and clients) will love.
• Diagnostic tools and techniques. (The machine will not have an internet connection.)
• Protecting your data from operators who will cut power to the machine.
• Simple and effective internationalization using Microsoft Translation Services.
There is a serious shortage of talent in this important field. A developer who is capable of delivering a reliable and attractive machine control application in a short time frame will have a very successful career. Furthermore, even if you are currently working in a different field - if you are working with C# and WPF - then be assured that you will take away something of interest from this presentation.
