LCFG Users Day 2009

This year the day was split into two separate parts. In the morning of 10th December we ran a tutorial on writing LCFG components and using the new build tools. This was aimed at anyone who has, at least, a bit of experience with using LCFG (i.e. basic stuff such as working with LCFG resources). The tutorial had something to offer for all developers whether starting from scratch, looking to refresh knowledge or wanting to find out how to use the new buildtools.

In the afternoon of 20th November there was a series of talks and discussions. This covered a broad range of aspects of LCFG usage on both Linux and MacOSX. There were reviews of work done in the last year and discussions of what might be happening in the near future.
