Fwd: [Smalltalks 2016] --- Invitation

Carlos E. Ferro

I have received the invitation for the 10th Smalltalks conference in Argentina.

Hope to see you there!

-------- Forwarded Message --------

The Fundación Argentina de Smalltalk (FAST, http://www.fast.org.ar) invites you to the 10th International Conference on Smalltalk Technologies (Smalltalks), to be held from November 9th through November 11th at the Universidad Tecnológica Nacional, Facultad Regional Tucumán, located in the city of Tucumán, Argentina. Everyone, including teachers, students, researchers, developers and entrepreneurs, are welcome as speakers or attendees.

This year, we are extremely happy to announce Ralph Johnson and Gilad Bracha in our conference.

Ralph Johnson is part of the Gang of Four that gave us the language to talk about Design Patterns in software.  He taught Smalltalk at the University of Illinois with widespread influence on the community.  His students include Don Roberts and John Brant, authors of the Refactoring Browser.

Gilad Bracha's work as a language designer and implementer spans Strongtalk and the Animorphic VM, the Java HotSpot VM, and more recently Dart at Google as well as NewSpeak.
