The next meeting of the UK Smalltalk User Group will be on Wednesday,
Alexandre Bergel will talk about Agile Visualization with Roassal3.
Visualizing data is probably the easiest part in the field of data
visualization. Numerous books and sophisticated libraries exist for that
very purpose. One of challenges of data visualization is to identify the
right abstractions that make a visualization reusable, composable,
extensible, navigable, and produced at a very low cost. Roassal (
https://github.com/ObjectProfile/Roassal3 ) is a visualization engine for
Smalltalk that leverage the experience of crafting and using data
visualization. This talk will demo Roassal and presents non-trivial
visualizations within the field of software visualization.
Alexandre Bergel ( http://bergel.eu/ ) is Associate Professor and
researcher at the University of Chile. Alexandre Bergel and his
collaborators carry out research in software engineering. His focus is on
designing tools and methodologies to improve the overall performance and
internal quality of software systems, by employing profiling,
visualization, and artificial intelligence techniques.
Alexandre Bergel has authored over 140 articles, published in international
and peer reviewed scientific forums, including the most competitive
conferences and journals in the field of software engineering. Alexandre
has participated to over 140 program committees of international events.
Alexandre has also a strong interest in applying his research results to
industry. Several of his research prototypes have been turned into products
and adopted by major companies in the semi-conductor industry and
certification of critical software systems.
Alexandre is member of the editorial board of Empirical Software
Engineering. Alexandre authored the book Agile Artificial Intelligence in
Pharo, Agile Visualization ( http://agilevisualization.com/ ), and
co-authored the book Deep Into Pharo.
