OpenSim 2.0 Developers Workshop, October 28-30, 2009
This developer's workshop covered the upcoming release of the OpenSim 2.0
API. It was held at Stanford University October 28-30,
2009 and was an opportunity to learn about how OpenSim is constructed and
how to build on this foundation to meet research and laboratory goals.
On the first day, a brief architectural overview of OpenSim and several examples of building and interacting with models programmatically (including the development of custom components) were provided. In particular, we
described OpenSim model components such as bodies, joints,
constraints, forces, and controllers and demonstrated how to assemble
these components into working models in coding exercises in the form of
small main programs. The second and third days were spent mostly working on individuals' specific research goals with OpenSim developers.
