Eighth ESUG Smalltalk Summer School
August 28th - September 1st
Southampton, UK


For the 8th consecutive year, the European Smalltalk User Group organizes a Smalltalk Conference to bring together Smalltalk users from both academia and industry in a friendly atmosphere. As always the attendents will enjoy tutorials, workshops and demonstrations on various Smalltalk related subjects. Due to the recent upliving of Smalltalk, this year promises to be really exciting. The location of Southampton, on England's south coast, while it has been dubbed as the 'Entertainment Capital of the South', is also the ideal touring base to explore the Hampshire region, one of the most interesting regions in England.

Report and online presentations

The report about this Summer School, written by Niall Ross, is available in pdf format.

We even have four pictures that were taken. The first one shows the presentation area (picture) where some people are debating while others were having coffee nextdoors. Then we took some group pictures. The first picture (picture) shows the regular commotion when too much people need to find a place in front of a camera. The next one (picture) is all but complete (only Michel Tilman is missing, as he took the picture). The final group picture (indeed, with Michel) was able to capture everybody.

We have also got a lot of the presentation that were given, and we have made them available in several formats. The presentations can be accessed from the programme page, or directly from the following list if you know the name or presenter:


The Programme of this Summer School is still available. The Call for papers is also still up.
