Home Page

Llamawerx and the North Carolina State Council of Epsilon Sigma Alpha have refreshed for 2009-2010.  This website serves North Carolina ESA members and potential members. Epsilon Sigma Alpha International is a leadership and service organization bringing good people together to do good things through programs and projects that make a positive difference…locally, nationally, and internationally. Through a network of thousands of members and more than 1,200 chapters, ESA provides more than 650,000 service hours and over $18 million for charitable causes each year. In 2007, ESA raised close to $11 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the leading pediatric cancer research hospital in the country, with North Carolina chapters raising nearly $200,000.

Jumpstart for Open AT

Friday, April 3rd, 2009

Llamawerx is pleased to announce the release of Jumpstart for Open AT a framework for building applications using Wavecom’s Open AT environment. “Open AT is a great environment for building wireless applications on top of Wavecom’s products,” said Doug Griswold, CEO of Llamawerx. “There are a lot of APIs and you can do amazing things, but starting from scratch can be daunting.”

Llamawerx’s Jumpstart for Open AT provides a proprietary framework for commonly used features like SMS, GPRS, GPS, and GPIO. By layering higher level functionality on top of the Wavecom APIs, Jumpstart for Open AT codifies a design structure that easily expands.

“While writing M2M applications for Open AT, we found ourselves doing the same thing over-and-over – encoding and decoding messages, executing commands, handling local control, queuing output, etc,” explained Griswold. “Why not extract that design, code and the testing that went along with it and package it.”

The advantage is unmistakable. Analysis of a Llamawerx project uncovered 7744 lines of “C” code. Of those 7744 lines, 4505 were new and 3240 were from Jumpstart for Open AT. Applying Jumpstart saved this client at least 88 man-hours of effort. “The ability to quickly get something up and running is a great advantage,” according to Griswold. “It allows us to deliver functionality very quickly that the client can see and use.”

Jumpstart for Open AT goes beyond the Open AT APIs by incorporating higher level functionality and design:

  • Flash access
  • GPIO monitoring and activation
  • GPS positioning
  • Local control commands
  • Message encoding/decoding
  • Non-volatile data structures
  • Over-the-air download
  • Queuing and retrying output
  • Startup coordination and supervision
  • State machines
  • Tracing and debug output

Recently Launched: Lillies Yarns

Lillies Yarns

Llamawerx recently redesigned the website for Lillie’s Yarns, a brick-and-mortar and online yarn store in Perkasie, PA. The site design focuses on a simple, easy to use layout. According to Doug Griswold, CEO of Llamawerx, “When people visit one of our websites, we want to make sure the important information is accessible. Lillie’s Yarns is a traditional store and people visiting want to know where it is, how to get there, and what the hours are. Visitors don’t always come in through the home page; search engines can drop them off anywhere.”

During the next phase, we will add an e-commerce component for online shopping.
