ESUG 2014 REMINDER: Technology Awards

http://esug.org/Conferences/2014/Innovation-Technology-Awards

Have you written innovative Smalltalk? The developers of any Smalltalk-based software can enter by submitting a 3-5min video of their software. Entrants demo their systems in a session at the end of Monday August 18th 2014, after which the conference attendees vote. (A vote consists in providing a sorted list of 3 preferred pieces of software.)

The top 3 teams with the most innovative software will receive, respectively, 500 Euros, 300 Euros and 200 Euros. The results are announced in the Awards ceremony that is held during the social event.

Applicants should provide the following information on the conference registration server. Once you have registered your personal info, an 'Awards' menu allows submitting your software. You can provide this information when you first register, or login again later and update your details. The registration server will open soon. You can start preparing your software right now though.

Info to provide:

  • Name of the software
  • Licence information (free, shareware, or commercial)
  • Name of the Smalltalk dialect used
  • Name, Affiliation and Country of developers

Besides, it would be great if the submission could include:

  • URL for a video (3-5 min) showing a screencast / demo of the software
  • URL for downloading the software or at least a runnable demo

Deadline: August 15th

Any Smalltalker can apply (students, companies, ...). The presented piece of code/software should be written in Smalltalk or directly support Smalltalk (e.g. Smalltalk VM). All Smalltalk dialects are accepted. The applicant should be "strongly related" to the presented code, be it as an author, as owner of the copyright/copyleft, or as an official representative of the copyright/copyleft owner.
