The Apple Developer Connection is sponsoring an event for Macintosh hardware developers later this month that may yield important benefits for Mac users down the road. Apple is having an “I/O Kit PCI Kitchen” at its Cupertino, Calif. headquarters from August 28 – 30, 2001.
Apple periodically holds these “kitchens” to provide developers with intensive, one-on-one assistance with engineers inside of Apple. The events enable software and hardware developers alike to have face-to-face access with people at Apple to help solve their technical issues.
Building on material first presented to attendees of Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference this past May, this particular kitchen will focus specifically on the development of Mac OS X drivers for PCI-based expansion cards, as well as CardBus-based devices. Attendees will learn how to create, optimize and deliver Mac OS X drivers for their PCI devices.
Prerequisites to attend the kitchen include registration of
a Darwin account, familiarity with the I/O Kit documentation available on that site, and familiarity with the
IO Kit Fundamentals documentation on Apple’s developer site. You’ll also be required to sign a non-disclosure agreement to participate.
There’s no charge to developers for the kitchen, although they will have to cover their own travel expenses and accommodations. Registration happens on a first-come, first-serve basis and is extremely limited, according to Apple. If you plan to go, RSVP
by e-mail no later than August 15. Copy the form below and fill it out when sending your e-mail.
