"Join us at Camp Smalltalk Ottawa 2015
If you enjoy programming Smalltalk or you're interested in promoting Smalltalk, come join us in Ottawa from June 12th to 14th for Camp Smalltalk Ottawa. Present your latest projects in lightning talks and chat with other Smaltalk developers.
The theme of this Smalltalk is "Send a Message". We'll be doing things to tell the world about Smalltalk and why we use it. All talks will be recorded and posted on YouTube. We'll interview Smalltalk developers for the Smalltalk Reflections podcast. We'll be developing frameworks for Smalltalk contests. More information will be available soon as we finalize the details.
On Friday June 12, we'll meet at the Ottawa Public Library to mingle and chat. Saturday and Sunday will be at the Shopify headquarters on Elgin Street."

Didier Besset offered his great book "Object-Oriented Implementation of Numerical Methods An Introduction with Smalltalk and Java" to the community.
We would like to thank Didier Besset for his great book and for his gift of the source and implementation to the community.
You can find
- Archive of the original book, with code in both Java and Smalltalk github.
- An abridged version of Didier’s book, without the Java implementation and reference; our goal is to make the book slimmer and easier to read. The implementation presented in this book is part of the SciSmalltalk library. github

The CORMAS modelling platform is now open-source and available under the MIT licence.
CORMAS (Common-pool Resources and Multiagent Systems; Bousquet et al., 1998) has originally been developed by CIRAD green team to provide a multi-agent framework that can be used to simulate the interactions between a group of agents and a shared environment holding natural resources. It is written in Smalltalk (originally in VW).
