Morphic 3 at Smalltalks 2007

On Dec 10th to Dec 12th we had Smalltalks 2007, the first Smalltalk conference in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It was organized by a bunch of folks from several local universities and companies using Smalltalk. I witnessed the organization from the start, and everybody was surprised of the outcome. We had 3 full days of activities with 28 talks, many really good, and a full day GLASS workshop. It was also a great oportunity to meet many old and new Smalltalk friends. We had a great time!

I want to thank the committee and the sponsors. You all did a wonderful job!

The conference web is http://www.dc.uba.ar/events/smalltalks/2007.

At Smalltalks 2007 I gave a talk and demo of Morphic 3. Besides talking on the ideas, I wanted something nice to show. So, I completed the implementation of ImageMorphs. As everything in Morphic 3, these new ImageMorph handle arbitrary coordinate systems. I also wrote a first version of the Morphic 3 plugin, for good performance rendering.

You can get the talk abstract (in English). These are comments on my talk by the conference organizers. You can also get the PPT presentation I used including my notes with the talk contents (in Spanish). You can also download the Squeak image I showed. To play with it you can evaluate the expressions in the inspector on any of the 3 image morphs there. The Morphic 3 plugin is only for Windows.

You can even see the video of my talk at YouTube! Part 1 - Part 2 - Part 3 - Part 4.

Well, I hope you like it. As always, comments are welcome. Come back soon!
