A Well-Attended Virtual Smalltalk Event
The UK Smalltalk User Group had its monthly meeting on Wednesday, April 29th. However, due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, this gathering was an online meeting from home.
The hidden benefit of this format was that people from all over the world were able to attend this virtual meetup. Over 30 people signed up for this event with the majority of them attending at least some part of the meeting.
Our own Suzanne Fortman and Niall Ross were in attendance and even the one and only, Kent Beck, made an appearance! George Cox shared his experiences with StrongTalk and several others presented lightening talks.
Maybe you have something you’d like to share with the Smalltalk Community? This online format allows everyone to listen, learn and share the passion that is Smalltalk.
The next meeting for the UK Smalltalk User Group will be on Wednesday, May 27, 2020 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. GMT+1. Alan Jackson will be talking to the group about Kyma (https://kyma.symbolicsound.com/), an object-oriented sound design environment built with Smalltalk technology. Afterwards, a social hour will follow with chats and impromptu presentations and discussions. Please note, this will be an online meeting, so anyone can attend from all over the world.
