JMRI DecoderPro: A conceptual overview


Greg will present a conceptual overview of DecoderPro and the Java Model Railroad Interface (JMRI). Rather than dive into lots of technical details and how to use DecoderPro, Greg will explain what it does and why you would want to use it. While specific examples are based on the Digitrax system, the concepts are applicable to all DCC systems.

JMRI overview and current status

JMRI (Java Model Railroading Interface) is a "state of the art", open source program for model railroad hobbyists. JMRI is a suite of tools distributed via a single download. The presentation is targeted to show you the areas that JMRI may help you. Ken will briefly cover DecoderPro, PanelPro and Operations so you get a clear idea of the many features the software may provide.
