UK Smalltalk User Group Meeting - Monday, May 23rd

The next meeting of the UK Smalltalk User Group will be on Monday, May 23rd.

Tim Mackinnon has recently started looking at JTalk - and how it translates Smalltalk to JavaScript as well as providing the familiar Smalltalk browsers in your web page. It's still a new project, but how does this approach compare to staying native? Come and join us for some interesting smalltalk on this topic.

In addition to this, Niall Ross will briefly update us on the upcoming ESUG conference 2011, in Edimburgh. Don't forget that the early registration is now open!

We'll meet in the Dinner Room of our usual venue - the Counting House, close to Bank Station, from 18:30 onwards.

A Tour of Architectural Abstraction with Objective-S - Wednesday, November 24th

This month, the UKSTUG will take a look at Objective-S , an architecture-oriented programming language based on Smalltalk and Objective-C, by hosting his creator Marcel Weiher. As per Alan Kay, “Code seems large and complicated for what it does” . Objective-S addresses one source of this accidental complexity: using software architectural abstraction to directly expresses the much wider variety of architectural styles typical of modern software systems, compared to traditional programming languages that still follow the call/return architectural style of scientific programs from the early days of computing. Marcel Weiher started his forays into dynamic object-oriented computing by implementing Objective-C on his Amiga 35 years ago and hasn’t stopped since. Stops on the way have been at Apple, the BBC, Microsoft and various startups, as well as contributing to Squeak. He is currently a principal software engineer at Citymapper and PhD student at HPI, where he is trying to distill some

Kyma - an object oriented sound and music system - Wednesday, May 27th

Deploying to the cloud from Pharo - Wednesday, July 29th

The next meeting of the UK Smalltalk User Group will be on Wednesday, July 29th. Peter Svensson will present his work on Cloudsdk-st. Cloudsdk-st is an experiment in ways to work with cloud deployment from a Smalltalk image. Traditionally cloud deployments run 'out of band' in separate build scripts or build/CI/CD systems. This project lets you define Docker images (using Dockerfiles) for Smalltalk, send them to the build system of a cloud provider directly and then choose what kind of service you want your image to be (cloud function or long-running VM). Currently it only supports Google Cloud and has a very rough UI. Future plans include support for AWS and Azure as well as better feedback and a Spec2 UI. Given the current COVID-19 restrictions, this will be an online meeting from home. If you'd like to join us, please sign up in advance on the meeting's Meetup page to receive the meeting details.
