Even though the Smalltalk world now has three major events worldwide (Smalltalk Solutions in the States, Smalltalks in Argentina and ESUG), I’d say the major and most traditional event is the annual Conference of the European Smalltalk User Group (ESUG), which will be held for the 19th consecutive year in 2011. This year it will take place in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Niall Ross just announced that Registration for the event is now open. There is an early bird rate of 360 EUR for the whole week from August 22nd to August 26th, 2011, which includes the social event and lunch, as always. ESUG also made an arrangement for affordable rooms close to the Campus, which you can register for at the ESUG page.
So if you want to learn all about what’s going on in and around the Smalltalk Programming Language, wish to meet old friends or participate in the Camp Smalltalk which takes place the weekend before the conference, visit the ESUG site and register for the conference. I can tell you, it’s worth it!
