UK Smalltalk User Group Meeting - Wednesday, July 29th
The next meeting of the UK Smalltalk User Group will be on Wednesday, July 29th.
Peter Svensson will present his work on Cloudsdk-st.
Cloudsdk-st (https://github.com/psvensson/cloudsdk-st) is an experiment in ways to work with cloud deployment from a Smalltalk image. Traditionally cloud deployments run 'out of band' in separate build scripts or build/CI/CD systems. This project lets you define Docker images (using Dockerfiles) for Smalltalk, send them to the build system of a cloud provider directly and then choose what kind of service you want your image to be (cloud function or long-running VM). Currently it only supports Google Cloud and has a very rough UI. Future plans include support for AWS and Azure as well as better feedback and a Spec2 UI.
Given the current COVID-19 restrictions, this will be an online meeting from home.
