Last week, I gave a presentation about, guess what :-), F-Script, at our yearly french speaking Smalltalk Party in Paris. This event is organized by Serge Stinckwich for the French Smalltalk User Group and was hosted this year at OCTO Technology, thanks to my colleague Bernard Notarianni. This time, the organizers had to close the registration process early given our room capacity. With 40 attendees, this was by far our biggest gathering for this event, and I think it was filled with innovations and energy. Our little community is happily growing. The graphic below shows the number of attendees over the years (2002 & 2003 numbers are estimations from my memory).
Now, I learn that the registration count for the next Smalltalk gathering, which will take place next week at the university of Buenos Aires, is quickly approaching 300. Wow!
Is this representative of a general trend in the Smalltalk world?
