Developer Program

The object of the Cincom Smalltalk Developer Program is to create an environment that allows Cincom Smalltalk customers and partners to participate in the ongoing development of the Cincom Smalltalk system. Currently, the program offers the following benefits to participating developers:
  • Access to all internal builds (via FTP)
  • Access to ftp-based update mechanism for contributions
  • A subscription to the vw-dev and/or ost-dev engineering mailing list
  • Access to “works in progress”
  • Access to various product updates
  • A voice in the direction of ongoing product development
To enroll in the program, you must be an active Cincom Smalltalk customer or partner, you need to complete the Cincom Smalltalk Developer Program Non-Disclosure Agreement. The primary purpose of the NDA is to allow all communication between members of the CSDP and the Cincom Smalltalk engineering team to be completely open and independent of licensing issues or other legal matters. If you are an individual, just use your personal name for the “Company Name” entries on the form.
