The next meeting of the UK Smalltalk User Group will be on Wednesday, May
26th.

Caffeine ( https://caffeine.js.org ) is a livecoded integration of the
SqueakJS Smalltalkvirtual machine with the Web platform and its many
frameworks. Craig Latta will show the current state of Caffeine development
through live manipulation and combination of those frameworks. The primary
vehicle is a Caffeine app called Worldly, combining the A-Frame VR
framework, screen-sharing, and the Chrome Debugging Protocol into an
immersive virtual-reality workspace.

Craig Latta ( https://blackpagedigital.com ) is a livecoding composer from
California. He studied music at Berkeley, where he learned Smalltalk as an
improvisation practice. He has worked as a research computer scientist at
Atari Games, IBM's Watson lab, and Lam Research. In 2016 he began combining
Smalltalk technologies with the Web platform, with an emphasis on spatial
computing. He is currently exploring spatial audio for immersive workspaces.

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/cbklbrycchbjc/ ) to receive the
meeting details. Don’t forget to bring your laptop and drinks!
