Camp Smalltalk filling up!

Much to our delight, there seems to be a lot of interest in the Camp Smalltalk event in London. We originally estimated our capacity at 30, and those slots have already filled up in less than 4 days!

We are just now discussing what our actual maximum capacity is. We'll be able to handle a few more people, we're just now sure yet how many.

So if you're interested in coming and haven't signed up yet, please head over to cslondon2010.eventbrite.com and add yourself to the waiting list. That will really help us understand how many more people still want to attend. Note that joining the waiting list does not commit you to attending, so if you're still on the fence, you might want to sign yourself up anyway.

We'll open up some more spots next week and then see how it goes. Thanks for your enthusiastic participation!

Camp Smalltalk London 2010


The UK Smalltalk User Group would like to invite everyone to attend Camp Smalltalk London this July 16-18.

The Pharo team will be holding one of their regular coding sprints and, in true Camp Smalltalk spirit, other Smalltalkers will be gathering together to do some productive work on their projects.

In addition, we want to welcome those who just want to learn more about Smalltalk, so we'll be holding an introductory tutorial on the first morning. We'll have you writing Smalltalk by lunch! If there's interest, we'll follow up with a Seaside tutorial the next day.

So whatever your level of experience, this is a great chance to meet other developers, network, discuss ideas, write code, and have some fun.

Cincom is generously treating us to dinner on Saturday at a unique London restaurant and Pinesoft will be opening up their spectacular London offices for the daytime activities. We are still finalizing some of the details but we wanted to announce the dates as soon as possible so you could begin your planning.

Thanks to our sponsors, the event is completely free. All we ask is that you sign up at cslondon2010.eventbrite.com so that we can plan everything for the right number of people. The current schedule and other logistical details are available on that site and we'll send out updates as we finalize the remaining items.

If you have any questions, just send an email to jfitzell@cincom.com.

We hope to see you there on July 16 - 18!
