John O’Keefe and Don MacQueen from Instantiations have put up a Camp Smalltalk Wiki on Google Code. The purpose of the Wiki is to discuss possible projects and exchange ideas in preparation of Camp Smalltalk’s, one of which is usually held on the weekend before or after ESUG. This year there will be a Camp Smalltalk the weekend before Smalltalk Solutions in Vegas.
The term “Camp Smalltalk” refers to loosely organized gatherings of Smalltalkers where they work on extending and improving the capabilities of Smalltalk. Camp Smalltalk will take place before Smalltalk Solutions on Saturday, March 12 and Sunday, March 13 from 10 AM until 8 PM both days.
So if you’d like to join in on a Camp Smalltalk or want to find people who join you in a hacking session on some open source project in any Smalltalk dialect, visit the wiki and leave comments or submit project proposals. Here’s how to jump on the boat:
How do I join the camp-smalltalk project?
Anyone can read the camp-smalltalk project pages. However, if you want to comment on any of the content, you will need a Google Account (perhaps you already have one for posting to Google Groups or for access to other Google applications). One of the project owners (right now, firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) must use the project administration page to add your Google Account email address to the project. Just email one of the project administrators from your Google Account email address and we will be happy to add you to the project.
I’m happy to see that John has added my Idea for extending SUnit for logging purposes (like for a build server) to the list of project candidates.
