What's New at GreenArrays
This is the fourth release of the integrated development system for our chips, with accumulaterd improvements and documentation updates that reflect 3d and incorporate users' suggestions.
THE AGENDA FOR TODAY - STARTING IN ABOUT 90 MINUTES
Post by Jurgen Pitaske
The new development platform for the GA144 is arrayForth 3, which is released today for general use. This package supports cross-development from saneFORTH/x86 running on a PC or win32 equivalent using high speed serial communication, and/or within-platform development using polyFORTH/GA144 running on the Host chip of an evaluation board (or equivalent) with much higher speed capability for communicating with microcode running in F18A nodes on Host and/or Target chips.
09:00 WELCOME --- Kevin Appert, Program Chairman and Master of Ceremonies
09:10 Exploring Win32Forth With Gun and Camera --- Bill Ragsdale
Bill will cover the innovative features of Win32Forth (now as well as 20 years ago!!!) and its integration into his "Win32Forth User Guide".
09:30 Fireside Chat --- Chuck Moore
It's a Forth Day tradition!
10:10 GreenArrays Update --- Greg Bailey, GreenArrays, Inc.
10:30 Photo Op and Bathroom Break
Traditional group photo and maybe screen shots of the zoomers.
10:40 μEforth Graphics and Sound on the Web --- Brad Nelson
Imagery and music come to μEforth on the Web! Learn how complex interactive pictures can be built from a simple but powerful vocabulary.
11:10 Expanded Matrices In Forth, with Format Schemas --- Bill Ragsdale
“I am planning to present the expansion of my matrix package for mixed data by column using a matrix defining schema (data dictionary). Leading to math/access operators selected by their operand format. Overloaded operators.”
11:35 The Forth2020 Group --- Peter Forth
“I can explain a little bit of the work the Forth2020 community is doing on the different platforms, and how our members help that Forth programming stays alive and is mentioned as a valid solution in 2020.”
Lunch will last one hour, the Zoom Room will remain open for socializing and discussion.
12:45 Less is Mo(o)re: Beyond FORTH --- Liang Ng and Demitri Peynado
13:15 The Latest from FORTH, Inc. --- Leon Wagner
“1) SwiftForth x64 for Windows, Linux, and macOS. I’ll discuss the organization and some of the porting issues I encountered. There are some not so obvious lessons to be learned about portability.”
“2) SwiftX for the Raspberry Pi RP2040 dual-core M0+ microcontroller.”
13:40 The CORE I Project--- Don Golding and Demitri Peynado
Don writes: “Demitri and I will be giving an update to the CORE I project. Demitri will speak about the most important aspect of CORE I, the code. I will follow up with the first CORE I dev board. It incorporates an esp32 processor which we can run Brad's Forth on as a co-processor with full WIFI and Bluetooth.
14:30 4th.CoSy Update --- Bob Armstrong
CoSy is Bob's APL/K-level computational daytimer/notekeeping environment. Bob will give us a quick update on CoSy's progress.
Local in-person participants will be dining at a local eatery.
