On Monday, August 15th at 18:30, Haifux will gather to hear a talk by 
Aviv Sharon:

   0 A.D. Revisited

       (And Perhaps a Few Words About Wikimania 2011)


0 A.D. is a FOSS game of ancient warfare, belonging to a genre of games 
called Real-Time Strategy (RTS). It is mostly implemented in C++, along 
with scripts in JavaScript, and runs on Windows, Linux and Mac OS. The 
game was last presented at Haifux in December 2009 and has developed 
tremendously since then, with advances in graphics, A* pathfinding, 
opponent AI and more. Aviv will demonstrate some of the new features of 
the game of particular interest to Comp Sci people and explain how he 
manages the PR and social media aspect of a volunteer FOSS project. 
Probable bonus: Pictures and experiences from Wikimania 2011, where Aviv 
is set to assist the organizers with media and PR aspects.
