We visited Formetis Consultants

FormetisFormetis Consultants, our Dutch industrial partner and sponsor invited our students working on enterprise engineering topics into their headquarters in Boxtel, The Netherlands. We presented our work, got valuable feedback and support from the CEO Steven van Kervel. Prof. Jan Dietz also came to see our progress. The involved topics were:

  • The CIAO! App – a diploma thesis of Bc. Roman Lánský focused on designing a simple messaging and task management application based on the PSI theory and implementing a prototype.
  • Transformation of DEMO models into BPMN – a diploma thesis of Bc. Ondřej Mráz, which continues the work of Štěpán Heller, MSc.: an effort to bring the DEMO rigour into the BPMN world and vice versa: providing an intuitive visualisation of DEMO transactions.
  • Ongoing work on the Action Model in Formetis DEMO Engine done by Bc. Marek Skotnica as his diploma thesis.
  • Bc. Peter Uhnák presented our DynaCASE project and we discussed the synergies with the DEMO Engine.

ESUG 2015

We were present at this year’s European Smalltalk Users’ Group flagship event, which was held in Brescia, Italy. Although the weather was very hot, the conference was COOL! So many big things running in Smalltalk! Iceland’s mobile network, processors manufacturing and, of course, many business systems. Pharo really rocks, Pharo 5 is under massive development, cool stuff planned. Amazing things — you definitely need to check the GT Tools! More things retweeted on @RobertPergl.

Our DynaCASE project was present by its main programmers — Peter Uhnák and Honza Blizničenko — and got a lot of attention from the community. Michal Balda presented his Querier — a new database query system for Pharo inspired by NotORM.

Sad that you missed it? Do not dispair! ESUG 2016 will be in Prague, organised by FIT & CCMi ;-).

FIT is now official academic partner of Pharo Consortium

FIT became an official academic partner of Pharo Consortium. This news has been advised on the Consortium pages.

pharoOur membership will help our students, teachers and researchers via better access to events, knowledge and experience of academic-industrial communities developing pure object technology.

For us it is then the possibility of honorary membership commitment to be part of a contribution to this action.

Week of Smalltalk at FIT

Next week will be “a week Smalltalk FIT”. Indeed there will be a visit of Dr. Stéphane Ducasse.

Will be held the following public events:

  • Monday, 12/09 16: 15-17: 45 BS NTK: “Kicking and Alive” – invited lecture
  • Tuesday, 10/12 18: 00-21: 00: Workshop (T9 room 350, building new FIT)
  • Wednesday, 11.12 18: 00-21: 00: Worskhop (T9 room 350, building new FIT)

Contents workshops leave the selection of participants. Number of places in the workshops is limited, make sure you place the application below. If you decide at the last moment, just try to figure out, maybe you’ll get lucky and will instead ;-).

Dr. Ducasse will be fit until Friday. If there is interest, we can do even more workshops and meetings during Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. If you have any special wishes, write.

These actions but not nearly all: We will deal with Dr. Ducass on cooperation within the FIT ESUG and Pharo Consortium. This will give us more interesting and promising topics for student projects, scientific research projects and our industrial partners we are able to offer more advanced technologies and solutions.
