Previous actions

Please note: this is a description of a past ESUG promotion action. All books have been given out, the "Free Books for Academy" has been discontinued.

Smalltalk is a pure object-oriented language that is mostly written in itself. It has good pedagogical properties. It is used at the open university for teaching OO. Have a look at the list of selected universities below.

For this purpose we propose two packages:

  • Teacher Excellence Package - a package containing a relevant selection of Smalltalk books at all levels of expertise + 30 CD's containing all the free or non-commercial Smalltalks (Squeak, VisualWorks, Gnu Smalltalk, Dolphin, Smalltalk/X, Smalltalk/MT) / plus all the freely available books / a ready-to-use lecture (400 slides / 100 pages of exercises)
  • Teacher Immersion Package - we offer you to have the possibility to get an intensive lecture for any number of students over 3 or 4 days. The Teacher Immersion Package includes the Teacher Starter Package.

Admissibility conditions.

There no limit of country location (within Europe) to obtain the packages. The only criteria will be your willingness to learn and/or teach Smalltalk. You should write to ESUG a small description (max a page) describing your situation (include any criteria you find relevant) and what your plans are to promote Smalltalk. The package will be given to the local library of the university of the person who contacted us, but with the legal obligation not to do any business such as reselling the books to other party. Please include the library address with your announcement.
