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!

The next UK Smalltalk User Group meeting is on this coming Monday, 30th January at 6.30pm at it’s usual location  The Counting House . This is the first of the talks that we selected at the Christmas meeting. And for some reason I got chosen to go first: Anatomy of an IDE Using a few example IDEs we are going to look at what makes an IDE valuable. Building software is a complex business, software that works and stays in production for years. It is a craft that involves engineering, insight and skill. The tools that we use to build that software are vital enablers to our success. Between 1997-2004 the dominance of Java and the main vendors’ tools strategies led to something of a stagnation for IDEs. But since then with the return to language diversity and the broadening of platforms there has been a real opportunity to experiment with what an IDE is and means and to look at how it could evolve. We will look at a range of IDEs including WebVelocity, Cloud9 and Codea and cont

Amber with Silk - Wednesday, February 24th

 The next meeting of the UK Smalltalk User Group will be on Wednesday, February 24th.   Christian Haider will guide us in a tour of the Amber dialect of Smalltalk and its Silk web framework. In his own words... Amber , created by Nicolas Petton, is a Smalltalk implemented in JavaScript running in a web browser. Silk , written by the Amber maintainer Herby Vojčík, is a web framework in Amber.    I was looking for a good solution for the web for a long time. At the last ESUG, I was bugging everybody about a Smalltalk in the browser, because I decided to redo the frontend of my current project in Smalltalk instead of JavaScript. There were some developments, but only Amber was available. So I tried it for real on a little side project ( sources ) to see if this route is viable - spoiler: it is!   Silk, the web framework, caught my attention and I fell in love with it. Silk is very simple, straight forward and powerful, just the properties I love Smalltalk for. A Silk is basically a faca
