Entre los ponentes, tenemos a:

Gilad Bracha http://bracha.org/Site/Home.html 

Gilad Bracha is the creator of the Newspeak programming language. He is currently a VP at SAP Labs in Palo Alto focusing on programming models for the cloud. Previously, he was a Distinguished Engineer at Cadence, and a Computational Theologist and Distinguished Engineer at Sun. He is co-author of the Java Language Specification, and a researcher in the area of object-oriented programming languages. Prior to joining Sun, he worked on Strongtalk, the Animorphic Smalltalk System. He received his  B.Sc in Mathematics and Computer Science from Ben Gurion University in Israel and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Utah.

Su charla será justamente sobre el estado del lenguaje de programación Newspeak.

Andy Kellens http://prog.vub.ac.be/~akellens/

Welcome to the website of Andy Kellens. I am a researcher working at the Software Languages Lab of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel funded by a research grant (Onderzoeksmandaat type 3) provided by IWT Vlaanderen.

Su charla:

IntensiVE is a software engineering tool that enables developers to verify conformance of various kinds of design rules with respect to the source code. This talk gives an overview of the tool suite and how it can be used support agile architectural conformance checking.

Gabriela Arévalo http://www.lifia.info.unlp.edu.ar/en/gabriela.htm

I graduated in 1999 as a Licentiate in Computer Science at Universidad Nacional de La Plata (UNLP), in Argentina. In August 2000, I got the Master of Sciences in Computer Science within the context of EMOOSE program (European Master in Object-Oriented Software Engineering) at Ecole des Mines de Nantes (France) and Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Belgium). In January 2005, I got a Ph.D. in Computer Science in the University of Bern (Switzerland)…

Eliot Miranda http://www.mirandabanda.org/cogblog/

I’m a loooong-time Smalltalk VM implementor and systems programmer having written my first VM in 1983.  I was lucky enough to work on Peter Deutsch’s HPS VM for VisualWorks throughout the 90′s and early 2000′s and essentially double its speed (mostly by adding polymorphic inline caches and rearchitecting its mapping of contexts to stacks).  I was technical lead for VisualWorks from vw 3.0 through vw 7.4.1, leaving at the and of 2006. I spent an all too brief but stimulating time at Cadence in Gilad Bracha’s Newspeak team. I’m now at Teleplace (née Qwaq) where I’ve been free to implement another fast VM for Croquet, a 3d immersive collaboration architecture built above Squeak Smalltalk, but this time (unlike VisualWorks) the VM is open source.

Lukas Renggli http://www.lukas-renggli.ch/

I am involved in Seaside, a framework for developing sophisticated web applications in Smalltalk. I am a promoter of Pharo Smalltalk, an open-source Smalltalk dialect. I maintain the OmniBrowser framework, the Refactoring Engine and various other development tools for Pharo. Some projects I am the author of are:

  • Builder, build and test Pharo images from Hudson.
  • PetitParser, a dynamic parser framework.
  • Helvetia, language embedding without breaking tools.
  • Gofer, work with groups of package in Monticello.
  • Magritte, a generic self-described meta-model.
  • Pier, an extensible object-oriented content management system.
  • jQuery and jQueryUI for Seaside, change the way you program Javascript.
  • Scriptaculous, let Seaside applications fly Web 2.0 style.
  • Comet, HTTP server push extension for Seaside.
  • SqueakSource, a source code repository for Pharo.

Gerardo Richarte (que creo que me debe un libro … :-) http://community.corest.com/~gera/

In the last 15 years Gerardo ‘gera’ Richarte has been dedicated to computer security. He has spoken in different conferences including BlackHat, CanSecWest and PacSec among others, and taught assembly language and exploit writing classes for private, public and military students. For the last 12 years he’s been part of Core Security Technologies, where he was a Sr. Security Consulting, Sr. Security Software Engineer and Reverse-Engineer, and has been working, for the last 5 years, as an Expert Exploit Writer, technically leading the exploit writing team for the CORE IMPACT product. During all these years he’s published some papers, advisories and open source tools as a humble thank you to the community that has given so much to him.

Gerardo "richie" Richarte started Smalltalking and Squeaking in 1998 at Leandro Caniglia’s MathMorphs class, where he was one of the main creators and implementors of the MorphicWrappers, as well as some other MathMorphs components. In the early days of Squeak he was an active member of the list, where he contributed a few bits of code. Being a member of the original 2001 SqueakNOS team, he awakened the project almost 5 years later to bring it back its second incarnation. Today, he’s still unofficially Squeaking and Smalltalking, and spending a big portion of his time reading and writing assembly and other low level stuff.

Martin Kobetic http://www.esug.org/wiki/pier/Conferences/2010/Talks/Xtreams

Traditional Smalltalk-80 streams have served us well for decades. They are reasonably simple and reliable (for the most part), however, over time we have accumulated a lot of practical experience using streams in a wide range of circumstances. Michael Lucas-Smith and Martin Kobetic started Xtreams as an attempt to distill some of that experience into a new implementation of streams. Xtreams allow to stream over a wide range of sources and destinations, and perform "just-in-time" transformations by stacking streams on top of other streams, for example it is possible to stream directly over content of an encrypted, compressed, base-64 encoded message as it’s being received from a socket. This talk will discuss current state of Xtreams, demonstrating some of the design choices and capabilities. Xtreams is MIT license. http://code.google.com/p/xtreams/ It is also on all the packages in the public cincom repository.

Markus Denker http://marcusdenker.de/

I’m a permanent researcher at INRIA Lille – Nord Europe, team Rmod.

Squeak by Example is a open-source book about the Squeak development environment for the classic Smalltalk-80 programming language. Pharo by Example updates the book to use the Pharo fork and adds some new chapters.
