Announcement from theComplex:

Building sophisticated multi-media, intensely interactive, Web applications is a significant challenge requiring mastery of multiple technologies. The Complex’s own Prof. West hosts a hands-on seminar for anyone with basic programming and web skill who wants to develop that mastery. From March 30 – April 3.

GLASS referes to Gemstone, Linux, Apache, Seaside and Smalltalk, a suite of software applications that provides a single environment, and language, for developing desktop-like Web applications. This workshop will provide a GLASS overview and tutorial followed by a combination of hands-on projects and in-depth coverage of special topics (e.g. the incorporation of Sun’s Lively Kernel technology into GLASS). Informal discussions, explorations, and hacking are likely to take place each evening

James Foster of Gemstone will lead the workshop. You will also have the opportunity to work with prominent members of the Santa Fe Complex on projects. Sessions run from 8:30 – 4:00 from Monday, March 30 – Thursday, April 2 and from 8:30 – noon on Friday, April 3. Lunch and breaks are included in the $375 fee. For more information, e-mail Dr. Dave West at profwest@fastmail.fm or phone him at 505-231-7233.
