THERE IS A FEE!    $$$
  Topic:     50 Years in Technology:    Nothing as Constant as  
Change!   Statistics show that for most entrepreneurs, success is  
fleeting.
  That is particularly true in technology-focused businesses where  
risk is inherently high, the pace of evolution rapid and
  the need for innovation constant.    ...

CONFIRMED  -They ARE meeting DESPITE the World Series!

This month= Core Animation Fun House

         Animation is “core” to every iOS app.   This talk dives into  
the Core Animation framework.
We will discuss the different types of CALayer objects, implicit and  
explicit animations, and a technique for
animating sine waves and arcs.
* Layers, Geometery and Layer Trees
  * Implicit Animations (size, position, color, etc.)
  * Explicit Animations (continuous animations, path animations, etc.)
  * Animating with the UIKit API * Multi-touch Bézier curve editor  
(with path animation)
  * Technique for animating sine waves and arcs (think pie charts).
  * Technique for creating reflections using CAReplicatorLayer

   * 6:00pm - Meet/Greet
  * 6:15pm - Core Animation Fun House by Brian Coyner
  * 8:30pm - Next Meeting Details, Questions / Discussions

VENUE: St. Louis County Library Headquarters (40 & Lindbergh).
We are a group of software developers dedicated to diving deep into  
Apple’s iOS platform.
Our goal is take our current software engineering skills (Java, ObjC, C 
++) and learn how to apply those skills to the iOS platform.

Modeling using freely available COMPUTER SOFTWARE.

Fri, October 28, 7:30pm – 9:00pm
3015 N Ballas Rd, St. Louis, MO
DescriptionVenue: Nursing Institute building, Missouri Baptist  
Hospital Complex
http://www.slsrc.org/
  Introductory demonstration of Radio Antenna Modeling using freely  
available computer software.
  Jobst Vandrey (AC0LP) will show how to use antenna modeling software  
to plan or modify an antenna
  design so that it meets specific communication needs.  Topics will  
include horizontal antennas,
vertical antennas, and directional antennas.   Demonstrations will  
include how antenna properties
  change with wire size, height above ground and physical  
orientation.   The demonstration will display
some of the basic capabilities of antenna modeling software so that  
members who wish can download
the software and begin to experiment with models of their own  
antennas.  While the demonstration will
focus on wire antennas for the 20 and 40 meter bands, the software  
used in the demonstration
will work for antenna designs on all amateur bands.

                    CODERS - Code Until Dawn in STL

Fri, October 28, 11pm – Sat, October 29, 12am
DescriptionVENUE: Location may change each month.
  http://www.meetup.com/allnightlong/

Once a month, get together for an all-night hacking session.   Stay as  
long or as short as you'd like.
  We started this group to spend time with other St Louis developers.   
This group is for anyone who wants
to catch up on that nagging side project at a late night, caffeinated  
coding session with like-minded individuals.
  All skill levels and languages are welcome.

                   Wash U. Physics        -'c' - the speed of light :  
more than just a speed limit...

10am – 12pm

'c' - the speed of light : more than just a speed limit, it is the  
glue between space and time

  Professor Francesc Ferrer, Department of Physics, Washington U
201 Crow

       In 1905, Albert Einstein postulated in his theory of special  
relativity that the speed of light
in vacuum, 'c', is a fundamental constant of nature.  The equivalence  
of mass and energy (E = mc2),
  the relation between space and time - these are among the many  
implications of Einsteins postulate
(counterintuitive yet experimentally verified).   In this talk, we  
will review the measurement attempts
leading to the conclusion, in the 17th century, that light travels at  
a finite speed.  We will then go on
to explore the consequences of its constancy: from the profound link  
between space and time,
to more practical applications such as the Global Positioning System  
(GPS), and the study of the evolution of the universe.
