Have you written innovative Smalltalk? The developers of any Smalltalk-based software can enter by submitting a 3-5min video of their software. Entrants demo their systems in a session at the end of Monday July 13th 2015, after which the conference attendees vote. (A vote consists in providing a sorted list of 3 preferred pieces of software.)
The top 3 teams with the most innovative software will receive, respectively, 500 Euros, 300 Euros and 200 Euros. The results are announced in the Awards ceremony that is held during the social event.
Applicants should provide the following information on the conference registration server. Once you have registered your personal info, an 'Awards' menu allows submitting your software. You can provide this information when you first register, or login again later and update your details.
Info to provide:
- Name of the software
- Licence information (free, shareware, or commercial)
- Name of the Smalltalk dialect used
- Name, Affiliation and Country of developers
Besides, it would be great if the submission could include:
- URL for a video (3-5 min) showing a screencast / demo of the software
- URL for downloading the software or at least a runnable demo
- Deadline: July 12
Any Smalltalker can apply (students, companies, ...). The presented piece of code/software should be written in Smalltalk or directly support Smalltalk (e.g. Smalltalk VM). All Smalltalk dialects are accepted. The applicant should be "strongly related" to the presented code, be it as an author, as owner of the copyright/copyleft, or as an official representative of the copyright/copyleft owner.

The Pacific Northwest Smalltalk crew would like to invite you to Camp Smalltalk PDX this summer. Come join us August 21-23 in beautiful Portland, Oregon!
We all know coding is a lot of fun, and that the best coding is done with the delete key. Accordingly, Camp Smalltalk PDX will be at Portland’s CTRL-H hackerspace, www.ctrlh.org.
There is no set schedule, but of course we all have strong interests. Some of the areas that will surely be covered include:
- Smalltalk on small devices, such as Scratch on Raspberry PI
- Web frameworks such as Seaside
- Virtual machine implementations
- Data processing applications
- Language design, Smalltalk and beyond
If you are curious about Smalltalk, feel free to drop by and give Smalltalk a try.
And yes, there are also the well known regulars --- we all know who you are :). It’s time to catch up and plot inventing our future.
Feel free to contact us directly if you have questions regarding travel or accommodations. Also, if you know you will be coming and you haven’t completed our survey yet, doing so will help us coordinate the infrastructure around the event: *http://goo.gl/forms/XVLOLRe8OF*.

See you in Portland!
