Smalltalk Users Group meeting (yes, really)
GemStone Systems

Join fellow programmers interested in Smalltalk for discussions and demos. This is our first meeting of the fall season. Michael Lucas-Smith, Cincom engineer and new Portland resident, will be demonstrating WebVelocity. Other topics may include CouchDB, OpenGL, and building a new website for the group.

The building is in an "L" shape. The main entrance is at the inside corner. The door will be locked, but a phone number to call to be let in will be posted there. If you don't have a cell phone, get there more or less on time and we'll check the door to see if you're waiting.

We often go to a pub after the meeting for food, a beer, and more discussion.

Small talk about all things Smalltalk, the language that started it all and is still incredibly fun to work with.

This month's topics:

  • Martin McClure (with help from Andres Valloud) will talk about hashed collection performance in Pharo. This has been found to be rather bad for many collections, and Martin and Andres have written simple changes that deliver 2-3 orders of magnitude improvement.

  • Brian T. Rice will give an update on Slate.

The building doors are locked; a number to call to be let in will be posted on the front door.

pdx.st meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month. If you have a presentation you'd like to give, or one you'd like to see, post to the list (see website URL).

pdx.st -- Portland Smalltalk Users Group
Portland State University Fourth Avenue Building (FAB)

Small talk about all things Smalltalk, the object-oriented programming language and environment.

This month's program includes a presentation by Brian Rice about Slate's Haskell-based descendent Atomo, and what features he'll be drawing back into Slate, including Smalltalk-oriented pattern-matching. Also, Slate is gaining general assignment syntax in a non-abstraction-breaking way using Slate's macro facility.

Finally, and intriguingly, a student, Max OrHai, who has been working on Dave Ungar's parallel Squeak VM, has a nice demo.

The meeting is in room 086-01 of FAB, known to some directional signs as room 86-01. This room is under the plaza between the Engineering Building and the Fourth Avenue Building, you may enter through either lobby and go down the stairs.
