How to Develop a Distributed Game of Life with DDS Live Event: May 15, 2013 (11:00 a.m. EDT/8:00 a.m. PT) RTI participates in OpenSystems Media's E-cast

OpenSystems Media (OSM), LLC today announced its upcoming E-cast on How to Develop a Distributed Game of Life with Data Distribution Service (DDS) moderated by John McHale, Editorial Director, Military Embedded Systems, OpenSystems Media. The Game of Life is a famous zero-player game that has been devised by John Conway more than forty years ago. It is a cellular automaton that runs on a rectangular grid of cells, each of which is either alive or dead. A set of four simple transition rules prescribe how the cells in the grid evolve from one generation to the other.

Life, as it is called for short, has been able to capture the fascination of many programmers ever since it was published, mostly because of the surprising behavior it can result in. Many programmers have written implementations of Life at some point, probably in an educational context or maybe just for fun.

In the webinar, attendees will learn how a distributed version of Life can be implemented using the Data Distribution Service standard from the Object Management Group (OMG). The presented Distributed Life system will be able to deal with real-life system requirements such as fault tolerance, scalability and deployment flexibility. It will be shown that by leveraging advanced DDS data-management features, system developers can off-load most of the complexity associated with the distribution and fault-tolerance aspects onto the infrastructure and focus on the application logics.

RTI will be available for a Q&A session immediately following the E-cast.
