Where Is Cincom Smalltalk Being Used Academically?
Periodically, we highlight details about the Cincom Smalltalk Academic Program. The goal of this program is to:
- Increase the quality of the available system design and engineering training,
- Provide higher-quality engineers and developers to the industry and users, and
- Expand the Smalltalk community.
The education community recognizes Smalltalk as a superior language for teaching students about high-quality systems and object development.
How the Academic PUL Program Works
Students and faculty who wish to participate in this program must first start by downloading the Academic Personal Use License (APUL) version of Cincom Smalltalk. The APUL is the current Cincom Smalltalk PUL release made available for students to use for educational purposes only (i.e., for a course). To obtain it, an academic user must request the APUL from our website here. Of note, maintenance releases of Cincom Smalltalk are not available in the APUL Program, nor is Cincom Smalltalk Version 9 currently.
There are over 120 academic institutions in 37 different countries across six continents that are using Cincom Smalltalk to teach programming. Is your school on the list? Do you know of others that should be? Reach out to the Cincom Smalltalk Product Team with other institutions not listed, but should be represented.
