This year 170+ people attended ESUG in Amsterdam. The lecture hall at CWI was packed every day. Visit the media page for links to the presentations from this years conference. Once again, Adriaan van Os, Lukas Renggli, James Robertson and Serge Stinckwich recorded memorable images of the event.

Here are links to the slides for James Foster and my talks. I’ll get a link for Martin McClure’s slides later.

I have to say that it is quite exciting to see this surge in interest in Smalltalk. Kudos to the ESUG board and conference organizers for investing their time and effort into a successful conference. To ensure the continuing success of the ESUG efforts become a member and show your support for a great organization.

The post conference Seaside Sprint (and here) was also a great success. Thanks to Café Kobalt and the public Library of Amsterdam for (unknowingly) providing the venue for the sprint. It was a pleasure to work on Seaside with such a fine group of programmers.
