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.



We also had a very nice social event with great Belgium beer! :-). Thank you, Formetis, for your kind support and hospitality!

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 ;-).

New courses at FIT

In cooperation with the CCM we were prepared two new unique items at FIT, which we recently from the summer semester 2015:

Subject MI-NSS is the result of collaboration with the University of Antwerp and will be taught by professors directly from Antwerp.

Subject BI-OOP is part of our activities within the Pharo Consortium.

Courses are now in the form of elective courses from the new bachelor accreditation will be BI-OOP compulsory subject of Software Engineering study program.

Ing. Zuzana Vejrážková diploma thesis was awarded in two competitions

Czech ACM Chapter & Slovakia ACM Chapter Student Project of the Year (ACM SPY) is a comptition for the best thesis in computer science and information technology. Susan received this prestigious award for his excellent work “Business Process Modeling and Simulation: DEMO, BORM and BPMN“, which contributed significantly to the topics which the CCM deals.

In addition to this award Zuzana succeeded well in the competition “ICT dissertation in 2013”, where her work placed on amazing 3rd place in tough competition.

Congratulations, thank you and wish you continued success!
