Cincom Smalltalk Helps Start-up Deliver Web Application for Event Management

Dirk Newbold is a mechanical engineer who also designs and develops non-commercial projects for collaborative web start-ups. Not long ago, he realized that it had been 20 years since he’d been in contact with many of his university peers. However, since his New Year’s resolution that year had been to delete all of his social media accounts, he had no way to contact them. What to do? Dirk decided to create a quick reunion site. He says,
“I started using Cincom® VisualWorks® as a complete novice, but found the environment so easy to navigate that I’d been using it exclusively as both an entrepreneur and a hobbyist. For the reunion site, I’d originally planned on just a simple display of the event and relevant information in readonly format. But as Cincom VisualWorks prototyping is so fast, I decided to add a page where users could trade comments.”
The package just grew from there.  RSVP is a standalone Cincom VisualWorks package that delivers a bespoke web application for the management of exclusive events with a dedicated domain. According to Dirk,
“Facebook delivers event management to the masses within their environment with their domain/URL, whereas RSVP delivers event management open to all web users with access to modifying the underlying application code directed to any domain/URL.”
