For the UKSTUG June meeting, Simberon's David Buck will present Beagle

Over the past 8 years, David has been developing a Smalltalk virtual
machine and image. He used it to release two Smalltalk games which ran on
Android and iPhone devices. More recently, he's re-written the VM to use a
new bytecode set and re-written the Smalltalk compiler with a new framework
to make a new Smalltalk environment called Beagle Smalltalk named after the
ship that took Darwin on his voyage of discovery. David plans to release
this as an open-source Smalltalk to help and encourage kids to explore the
world of programming.

In this talk, David presents the current status of the project and where he
hopes to go with it.

David Buck is the president of Simberon ( ) - a
company that has been providing Smalltalk training and consulting for over
25 years. Along with James Robertson, David produced the Industry
Misinterpretations podcast and later the Smalltalk Reflections podcast with
Craig Latta. David remains a Smalltalk enthusiast and works to spread the
word about Smalltalk.

This will be an online meeting from home. If you'd like to join us, please
