This year Pharo Consortium has been accepted as a mentor organisation for
Google Summer of Code.
Once again we’ve taken part in the traditional Smalltalk conference ESUG (European Smalltalk User Group), this time in Maribor, Slovenia.
During the conference, two of our students presented their work related to modeling and Pharo on the IWST17 workshop.
Jan Blizničenko followed up on his Master thesis and presented Kendrick epidemiological modeling on top of our OpenPonk platform. (presentation, paper)
Peter Uhnák presented an approach generating instance models for running systems, and live visualization and debugging of object structures. (presentation, paper).
We wrote post about our OpenPonk tool on the popular portamodeling-languages.com concerned with modeling ideas and tools. You can read the post here: modeling-languages.com/openponk-metamodeling-platform/.
We recommend you fantastic presentation “The Death of Object-Oriented Programming” by Oscar Nierstrasz:
