For our May meeting, Object Guild's Jonathan van Alteren and Erik Stel will
give us a preview of Expressive Systems.

Expressive Systems is a framework inspired by Richard Pawson's work on
Naked Objects ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naked_objects ). It allows
Object Guild to rapidly develop flexible applications by focusing on the
design of behaviorally complete objects in the business domain. By using a
novel web application architecture based on CodeParadise (
https://github.com/ErikOnBike/CodeParadise ), it allows direct manipulation
of business objects by the user. The goal of the framework is to better
support problem solving activities and to empower users by giving them a
first-person experience. The framework is currently in a (private) alpha

Jonathan has been developing business applications for various Dutch
companies since 2001, in roles varying from programmer to solution
architect. In 2018, he got hooked on Pharo/Smalltalk and never looked back.

Erik has developed both technical as well as business applications in a
variety of areas using a broad range of technologies. He’s been a Smalltalk
addict since using VisualAge in the late 1990’s.
