Article link

As usual, I am late with my duties.

The Dojo São Paulo now has a blog where we post the summary of each meeting. We also have a list where Mariana posted the link to our article about our experience that will be published at Agile 2008. And finally, we created a Dojo São Paulo git repository at Github. It is supposed to host the projects started at the Dojo. It currently hosts only the Dojo Unit which is the C Unit testing library we started working on. I have been working on it quite a few to make it a bit more effective. It is, so far, strongly based on conventions and limited to very small projects. If it grows a bit stronger I will post again about it.

I am not at home now but as soon as I get back, I will update my whole archimedes tree and release version 0.54. It marks the return of intersection features such as intersection grip and selection by intersection. Tomorrow the team will define what will be the next goal and I will post it as it gets defined.

I have defined the next screencast's script and I hope to record it tomorrow and post it then. I would like to say I am very disapointed with Google Videos since they are failing to process the screencasts I try to upload. I will try something else later but I lack enthusiam.

That's it for now. See you later folks.

After a while, another screencast

I've been busy since FISL as always. A couple projects starting over which I will only comment once they go a bit further than now.

Now for the good news, I had a paper about the Coding Dojo São Paulo accepted at Agile 2008 with Danilo Sato and Mariana Bravo. As soon as we finish the last revisions, I will post it here. For those of you who do not know what a Coding Dojo is, check the paper by the end of the week, for the rest, know that we host a coding dojo weekly (soon to be twice a week) in São Paulo and we would be glad if you could join us every wednesday from 8pm to 10:30pm.

Archimedes is walking slowly. I believe we will have most intersection features working for this release but not the save/open feature yet. Selection by intersection an trim will not be ready either. I should release it by the end of the week and I will post about it.

I have finally recorded the 6th screencast about Smalltalk, Squeak and Seaside. It shows the System Browser tool along with the Message names and the Method finder. It is not really very important but I had to talk about it before I can start classes (which is next screencast's goal).
That's it for now. Enjoy the recording:
