Thanks to the continued interest and generosity of Columbia
College Chicago, we are delighted to announce SqueakFest '07!
The dates for this year's gathering are:
August 1, 2 & 3
Hands-on Workshops Wednesday, August 1st
Keynotes, presentations & panels Thursday and Friday, August
2 & 3
SqueakFest is open to educators, parents (homeschoolers, other)
developers, community technology center leaders, etc., etc. --
anyone interested in working with Squeak Etoys.
This year we're planning a special track on the One Laptop Per
Child Initiative ($100 laptop) and welcome participation by Etoy
content developers for this particular platform in addition to those
using or planning to use Squeak Etoys on other computing
platforms. (For those who may be unaware, Squeak Etoys is
currently one offering provided on the $100 laptop which is being
distributed in great quantity this year.)
Please save these dates and help spread the word to colleagues
and friends you think would be interested in attending.
We'll be sending a "call for presentations" in early
April and also launching the official SqueakFest '07 website at that
Please mark your calendar and plan to join us in Chicago
for SqueakFest '07.
