I’ll be giving a technical presentation at Smalltalk Solutions entitled “GLASS: Share Everything”:

Seaside has been characterized as a “heretical” framework because it breaks many of the widely-accepted “best practices” for web applications, including “share as little state as possible.” With GLASS (GemStone/S, Linux, Apache, Seaside, Smalltalk) GemStone takes this heresy to the next level where “everything is shared” – transparently and persistently….

According to the preliminary schedule, I will be talking on June 20th from 9:15am to 10:00am.

James Foster will be giving a tutorial entitled “Building a Seaside Application (with GLASS)”:

This hands-on tutorial will present Seaside and walk through the process of building an application using GLASS (GemStone, Linux, Apache, Seaside, and Smalltalk). Topics covered include handling user logins, where to put session data vs. application data, building reusable components, styling a web site with CSS, and an introduction to Javascript.

James’ tutorial is scheduled for June 19th from 1:30pm to 5:00pm.

The conference will be held June 18-21, 2008 in Reno, Nevada, so if you haven’t already signed up, get busy and register!
