[Glass] UK Smalltalk User Group meeting - Wednesday March 31st

The next meeting of the UK Smalltalk User Group will be on Wednesday, March

In this meeting, Juan Vuletich will present a Vector Graphic implementation
in Cuis Smalltalk.

Graphics for interactive software have traditionally been constrained for
performance reasons. The consequence is that most software has serious
trouble adapting to higher resolution screens, requires platform specific
widget kits, provides limited functionality, and has sub optimal visual
quality. But improvements in computing power over the last couple of
decades enable a brighter future: Cuis Smalltalk provides a VectorGraphics
based implementation of the Morphic UI framework that addresses all these

Juan is a long standing member of the Open Source Smalltalk community. He
started Cuis Smalltalk ( https://www.cuis-smalltalk.org/ ) 12 years ago and
has led it ever since. He has been contributing kernel code to Squeak and
the Squeak VM for over 20 years. He holds an Ms.Sc. in Computer Science
from the University of Buenos Aires.

Given the current COVID-19 restrictions, this will be an online meeting
from home.

If you'd like to join us, please sign up in advance on the meeting's Meetup
page ( https://www.meetup.com/UKSTUG/events/cbklbryccfbgc/ ) to receive the
meeting details. Don’t forget to bring your laptop and drinks!
