Camp Smalltalk PDX wrap up

We wrapped up Camp Smalltalk PDX tonight.  The Saturday barbeque with fresh Oregon food and the Flat Nines jazz band was really nice!  Thank you Instantiations, FAST, and others who contributed to make it such a great experience --- including the cooks Paul DeBruicker and Dave Caster.  The CTRL-H hackerspace was a welcoming venue.  Thank you CTRL-H!  We had room and amenities, they lent us their backyard for the barbeque, and we also heard about the hackerspace's member projects.  And we even got Camp Smalltalk shirts courtesy of Dave Caster.

Of course, there was a lot of Smalltalk.  I heard of people working on VA Smalltalk, Monticello, Squeak, Cuis, web frameworks, GemStone, and so on.  Personally, I had a lot of fun hacking some VM stuff until a while ago.  And it's not just the work itself --- it's also the people you meet, the connections you make, and the passion you can share.

Photos will become available I am sure --- such as here.  In the mean time, enjoy this preview :).
