OpenSim Developer Jamboree, August 27-29, 2008

A workshop covering advanced topics in OpenSim was held at Stanford University Wednesday-Friday, August 27-29, 2008.  It was an opportunity to learn more about how OpenSim works "under the hood" and get supervised, hands-on assistance with problems you bring to the workshop.  On the first day, a conceptual overview of the OpenSim API (Application Programming Interface) was provided.  The second and third days were devoted to working on problems that participants brought to the workshop.  For example, participants generated simulations from motion capture data collected in their lab, add arms to their gait model, or wrote a new muscle model or controller.  Participants had the opportunity to work in small breakout groups with OpenSim experts on these problems.
