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.
