Bay Area NeXT Group Meeting

When: Thursday, January 23, 7:00 PM

Where: Stanford Linear Accelerator Center Auditorium 2575 Sand Hill Road, Menlo Park, CA

SPECIAL MEETING: Welcome Mac Users!

Developers and users from the Apple community are invited to join the renewed NeXT family in attending the regularly scheduled monthly meeting of the Bay Area NeXT Group, to be held Thursday, January 23, 1997, at 7:00 PM, at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center Auditorium, at 2575 Sand Hill Road, Menlo Park, California.

Topic: [Almost] Everything You Always Wanted to Know about NEXTSTEP!

With a strong sense of merger optimism from both the Apple and NeXT communities, BANG has decidedly dedicated the January 1997 monthly meeting to providing a overview of NEXTSTEP/OpenStep, the advanced operating system and core technology that motivated Apple's acquisition of NeXT Software, Inc. as the basis of its future Macintosh Operating System solution.

Representatives of NeXT have been asked to provide an informational presentation and demonstration of NEXTSTEP. Space is expected to be limited, so we are requesting that you RSVP by sending email to: with your name (and -optional- email address) to assist us in anticipating the number of attendees for this very special meeting.

An overview of the merger will be detailed, with a comprehensive introduction to NeXT's technology, and the historic decisions which created the superior operating system, development tool set, user environment, platform-independent portability, major Web and enterprise solutions. Details of future OS decisions may be provided.

Since the merger, the devoted Macintosh community has been suprised to discover how significant the NeXT productivity environment is. Here is an opportunity to learn about future Apple technology from those who know it best. Empower yourself by getting an informed start toward your computing future. Learn why MACH and Display PostScript are your friends!

Speakers will be announced on the BANG Web page and Usenet newsgroups. Stay Tuned!

Meeting Format:

Announcements, technical questions and answers, demo / presentation, and a review of developments at MacWorld Expo SF 1997. After the meeting, join us at a nearby restaurant (Palo Alto or Menlo Park).

Stanford Linear Accelerator Center is much easier to reach from 280.

FROM 280:

Take 280 toward Palo Alto. Take the Sand Hill Road exit (east). Follow Sand Hill over a small hill, about one mile. The SLAC entrance will be on your right at 2575 Sand Hill Road. Look for directions to the Auditorium at the guard office at the entrance.

FROM 101:

Take 101 toward Palo Alto. Take the Embarcadero Road exit (west). Continue on Embarcadero a few miles, cross El Camino Real onto the Stanford campus. The road forks about a block later, take the right fork; you are now on Arboretum Rd. Follow Arboretum across Palm Drive and through the Stanford Shopping Center. Turn left onto Sand Hill Road. Follow Sand Hill Road for a few miles, crossing Foothill Expressway/Alameda de las Puelguas (street has two names) and passing a Shell station on your right. The SLAC entrance is at a light on your left. Look for directions to the Auditorium at the guard office at the entrance.
