|It's always runtime in Smalltalk -- Developer Workshop "Experience Cincom Smalltalk"|
Workshop for OO developers looking for fun while programming
"Experience Cincom Smalltalk"
Dynamic programming languages are a hot topic now; OOPSLA 2006 dedicated an exclusive forum to them. They are considered to be a serious alternative to Java, C# or C++ -- even within the IBM camp as you can tell from the following abstract:
"Smalltalk developers build onto a continuously running application called the image. Because the image is always running, any addition, deletion, or update of a method in any class occurs at run time." (Bruce Tate, "Delayed Binding", "Crossing Borders" site hosted by IBM)
But there are several dynamic languages. So why not using one of the "modern" ones, Ruby & Co? Or do you expect more from a software technology than just cost reductions through increased developer productivity and simplified maintenance? E.g.
- Power: one single technology for various applications and architectures!
- Openness: not an island solution!
- First-class tools: powerful, easy-to-use and seamlessly integrated!
- Performance and stability
- And happy developers: Having fun at work empowers extraordinary results!
In our developers' workshop "Experience Cincom Smalltalk", you can. From December 5-7, 2006. In Frankfurt/Main, Germany.
We're looking forward to your curiosity and willingness to experiment!
