Recently James Foster and I gave a talk at Smalltalk Solutions where we described the port of Seaside and Monticello to GemStone/S 64. In addition to the talk, GemStone Systems announced a free (as in beer) version of GemStone/S mainly aimed at folks who are developing Seaside applications in Squeak and need to add persistence to their application.

Needless to say the announcement generated a fair amount of buzz.

For those of you unfamiliar with Gemstone/S especially in relation to Seaside, then you’ve come to the right place! As time goes by I hope to provide a series of articles that will help you to successfully move your Seaside application into GemStone.

Update (5/11/2007): Here’s a link to the slides for the talk.
