Software Versioning

Postby Diego Cerdán » Thu Jun 20, 2013 3:30 am

To develop my software, I'm using:

Ubuntu 12.10
g++ 4.7.2
OpenCV 2.4.5


Are the clients machines gonna be using at least Ubuntu 12.04 (latest extended support) version?

Thanks in advance,
Diego

Hi Diego,

wow, sounds like you are reimplementing the whole thing!

We will definitely provide a current g++ compiler and a current OpenCV version.

Do you specifically need Ubuntu? Some people might be using Debian, Red Hat, Suse, Mac, Windows XP, 7, 8 or whatever. We cannot offer all of them and cannot guarantee a specific operating system at this stage. We will be able to do that after the early registration deadline once we know what all the participants use and need, and it is not unlikely that we will be using ububtu (I would say it is 50:50 at the current stage). But to be on the safe side I would not recommend using any O/S specific functions or libraries.

I hope that helps.

Regards,
Jochen

Thanks for the quick answer.

I think my software is OS independent right now, I will keep it that way.


Cheers,
Diego

Is there any chance to get some guarantees on the compiler version or features soon?

Our code currently contains a lot of c++ 11 features that e.g. g++ 4.6 doesn't implement. I'd rather clean that up earlier than later.

Hi Christian,

we decide what computers we are going to use after the early registration deadline when we know the approximate number of participants and what software requirements everyone has. Just write on the registration page what software you need and we will do our best to provide it.

It is best to let us know as early as possible, as we might not be able to arrange software for teams that register late.
If you use software that is supported under ubuntu for both Mac and PCs, then you should be safe.

Regards,
Jochen
