A Book on Seaside

Some students of ours have devoted much time to the development of a tutorial for the Smalltalk-based web application framework Seaside. Investing even more time, the tutorial has been turned into a book of 212 pages, which is available for purchase as of today.

Upcoming Workshop: S3

The Workshop on Self-Sustaining Systems (S3) will take place on May 15/16 at the Hasso-Plattner-Institut in Potsdam. The programme has recently been made public and is very exciting. Not only do we have interesting talks about Smalltalk, Lisp, reflection, and language implementation, but there are also three invited talks one can easily get excited about.

Dan Ingalls is going to present the Lively Kernel; Ian Piumarta, COLA; and Richard P. Gabriel will give a talk "On Sustaining Self" - whatever that means. I couldn't figure it out yet, but it is surely going to be interesting.

Registration is open, pricing is decent, social events are included - a boat trip on the lakes around and in Potsdam in May is bound to be nice. Join us!
