ESUG is proud to announce the second international call for its  
Program of Smalltalk books.

Briefly, this program offers free books and teaching material to  
Universities worldwide.

Who can apply for this program?
a- If you are already using Smalltalk as a teaching/research/development
language, this program supports you to follow with your approach.
b- If you are not using Smalltalk but you are teaching (or would like to
teach) OOP, this program will provide you with enough material to do  
starting step and support you in the future.

Why should you apply?
We are a big community (composed of people in universities, research  
and industries) using Smalltalk as a main development language. We are
actively in contact and we would like that this community grows, with  
the advantages that this action means for your universities  
contact, knowlegde sharing, access to open sources, etc.).

What do you get if you apply for it?

Depending on your needs, we offer two possibilities:
a- Teacher Excellence Package -  a package containing a relevant  
of Smalltalk books at all levels of expertise + 30 CD's containing all  
free or non-commercial Smalltalks (Squeak, VisualWorks, Gnu Smalltalk,
Dolphin, Smalltalk/X, Smalltalk/MT) + plus all the freely available  
+ a ready-to-use lecture (400 slides + 100 pages of exercises)

b- Teacher Immersion Package - we offer you to have the possibility to  
an intensive lecture for any number of students for a week. The
Teacher Immersion Package includes the Teacher Starter Package
