Biography for Santiago Bragagnolo

Briefly about me

 I'm an argentinian currently studying System Engineer in UTN.  I've been using Smalltalk for the last 5 years, for teaching purposes and developing some things.

About my study

  Currently studying System Engeneer in UTN, I did several courses in parallel of java, sql and oracle architecture in my early days :P, and i did my high school at Otto Krause, a tecnic high school in the system specialization

My interests

I'm interested in software evolution, tool building, a little in software usability.

My non-Smalltalk experiences so far

I've worked in the software industry for 7 years in Argentina, developing custom applications in several technologies like Java - including scala and groovy -, vb6, C, .net, php, python doing desktop, web and backend applications.

My Smalltalk experiences so far

I've used Smalltalk for 5 years to teach OOP in UTN-FRBA as a teacher assistant.  In there, we are using a TOOL called LOOP we do in pharo to support teaching, and which won the 3rd price in the Innovation Technology Awards in the ESUG conference last year.
Last year i participate in DBXTalk project with Guillermo Polito and Gisela Decuzzi using magritte, glorp and opendbx driver adaptor.

Why am I interested in Smalltalk?

Smalltalk is a beautiful language, that let's you do things you can't in other environments, such as exploratory programming. But it lacks of work and tools so corporate people takes it into account.  I want to help a little bit on enhancing the smalltalk environment and tools.

Will I stay with Smalltalk after the project is finished?
