NeXT Application Development Workshop. [Use and Design of Instructional Applications on the NeXT Computer.]
Kiel, Don; And Others
Instructional applications for NeXT computers were developed by nine faculty members from the biology, mathematics and computer science, fine arts, chemistry, physics and astronomy, and geology departments as part of a grant awarded to the California State University at Los Angeles. These notes provide a schedule of events and reports from a 2-day workshop at which various features of the NeXTStep environment and their applications were described and demonstrated: (1) "NeXTStep, Mail" (Bob Desharnais, biology); (2) "Slider and Text Field" (Don Kiel, math and computer sciences); (3) "Objective C" (Don Kiel); (4) "Custom View and Slider" (Don Kiel); (5) "PostScript" (Bob Desharnais); (6) "Customizing Your Application" (Tony Longson, fine arts); (7) "Grapher Object" (Don Kiel); (8)"Icon" (Roland Carpenter, physics and astronomy); (9) "MouseDown Events and Bezier Curve" (Don Kiel); (10) "An Animated Dial Object" (Tony Longson); and (11) "DragIt" (Roland Carpenter). Other faculty members involved in the project were Gary Novak, geology, and Trina Valencich, Vickie and Joe Bragin, and Richard Keys, chemistry. A series of 14 screen dumps from some of the applications is attached. (DB)
