…a new web application built with Seaside in Pharo and deployed with GLASS in Gemstone/S was launched to the world: http://www.norizzk.com.
Norizzk.com is an innovative platform for risk-based test management.

Once again, the use of Smalltalk, Pharo, Seaside and Gemstone has proven to be a competitive advantage in the development of a stunning innovative product…
WorldPulse is application for the iPhone and iPad, that shows live accurate cloud cover data, the day/night terminus, night lights, and in 2.0 weather data from all the weather stations in the world.
In John’s presentation:
Bob Nemec, a long-time Smalltalker and GemStoner just posted a description of how he is using Seaside to extend the life of a couple of legacy Smalltalk applications:
NeXTPlan is written in Seaside and runs in Pharo and GLASS. In order to accomodate multiple persistence mechanisms, Johan and company developed a persistence API that works with Magma, GOODS, and GLASS.
The persistence API is especially interesting for folks who are developing Seaside/GLASS applications with transactions that need to span multiple HTTP requests and need to manage concurrent updates to shared data structures. Johan plans to extract the persistence API and make it available for other folks to use!
If you’re in the Cincinnati area and are interested in hearing about a production GLASS (GemStone/S, Linux, Apache, Smalltalk, Seaside) installation, then the Agile Round Table is the place to be!
James Foster posted several videos covering the development of iBizLog presented by José F. Bretti M. and Esteban Lorenzano at Smalltalks 2009. James has added subtitles to overcome the poor sound quality and embedded the slides from the presentation in the video …. nice job, James:

This particular application started life as a LAMP app, then became a Rails app, then a Seaside+GLORP app… and now it’s in GLASS. It’s much, much faster than any of its predecessors (some pages that used to take 10+ seconds to generate come up in about 100 ms), and users have already commented on how much more responsive it is.
