The tutorial I gave this afternoon went fairly well - I had fifteen people and a lot of questions. It was fun to get in front of a group of non-Smalltalkers and show off the system again - and it also reminded me of how long it's been since I was a beginner (the beginner questions they had weren't anything like the beginner questions were back in the 90's, when I taught for ParcPlace. Oh, for anyone interested in what I covered: it was a shorter version of Smalltalk Daily - which you can watch in order here.
I got some more requests from CD's after the session as well, so word of mouth must have been ok :)
After things wrapped up at 7 PM, we headed down to the great room for a Google sponsored dinner:
Joseph Pelrine is here, so I took a picture of him chatting at a table - I also want to thank Joseph for his help during the tutorial today - he sat in and had some helpful and timely suggestions. Thanks!
So now I just have to sit back and enjoy the conference - and there are a number of good sessions that conflict tomorrow. Decisions, decisions...
