Norm Green made the following announcement on the GemStone/S customer forum – the invitation for attending the CAB meeting is extended to users of the free Web Edition:

Hello GemStone Customers,

Back in the 1990s, GemStone hosted an annual meeting of customers here
in Beaverton to talk about “all things GemStone”. This was a chance
to meet other customers, give feedback to us on things you like and
don’t like about the product, and talk directly with the Engineering
team. Since Smalltalk Solutions is not happening this year, we are
thinking of holding Customer Advisory Board meetings in May or June.
These would last for 2 or 3 days (something like Tuesday through
Thursday) and would occur here at GemStone headquarters or at a nearby
venue. We have several ideas regarding the format including tutorials
on GLASS and Seaside. We could do something like host a CampSmalltalk
around the same time as the CAB. The only cost to attend would be
travel and living expenses.

In order to move forward, we’d like to get an idea how many people
would be wiling to attend. If you think you could come, please send
me an email. While we’re not asking for a commitment to attend, we’d
like to know that there’s a pretty decent chance you’d be able to
come. Both 32 bit and 64 bit customers are invited and customers are
free to send more than 1 representative.

Looking forward to hearing from you!!

Best regards,

Norman R. Green

If you are interested in attending send send mail here or to Norm directly.
