A first-ever tutorial on the Ptolemy software environment was given on
July 24th, 1995, in Arlington, Virginia, at the 2nd Annual ARPA
Rapid Prototyping of Application Specific Signal Processors (RASSP)
Conference. The conference brings together companies,
universities, and research laboratories funded by the ARPA
from which the
receives about half of its funding. The tutorial was given by Brian
L. Evans, Edward A. Lee, and Mike C. Williamson, of U.C. Berkeley, and
Dave Wilson of Berkeley Design Technology, Inc.
The full-day tutorial was intended for current or prospective users of
the Ptolemy design environment.
Although we included a brief introduction to the user-level interface
to the system, the tutorial emphasized extending the system.
The tutorial followed the schedule given below.
A glossary of terms
(from the User's Manual) was distributed to the participants.
