1. Introduction

EMC's major get together this year is during the cnc-workshop (www.cnc-workshop.com) put on by Roland Friestad and the Cardinal Engineering crew. Both developer and integrator sessions will run throughout the weeklong event. CNC Workshop runs from May 15 (Monday) through May 21 (Sunday).

2. The cnc-workshop page

The building in the manufacturing area where the EMC MAZAK project is located will be dedicated to the EMC group classes and projects.  EMC specific classes and projects will be done in this area. 

The EMC developers plan more or less regular "late morning" discussion of code, bugs, and features.  They will also be testing features during the afternoon and coding during the evenings.  (Note from Roland - I presume "late morning" means that they will have been up all night working on projects)

Ray Henry will present a class and discussion each morning
   Monday, May 15 --     Introduction to EMC2
   Tuesday, May 16 --    Using the Hardware Abstraction Layer part 1
   Wednesday, May 17 --  Using the Hardware Abstraction Layer part 2
   Thursday, May 18 --   Ladder logic programming part 1
   Friday, May 19 --     Ladder logic programming part 2

These sessions will allow for breaks to attend presentations of interest in the regular classroom located in the other building.

Each afternoon will be a hands on laboratory where individuals can work on several test machines, install and setup EMC2 on their own computers and hardware, or work with a small group fitting a CNC Control using PICO Systems components and EMC to a Diacro turret punch press.  This lab time will also permit some interaction between new users and developers on specific features of the EMC code.
