International Pascal Congress 2023
« on: October 23, 2022, 06:04:46 pm »
Dear Pascal-world colleagues,

My name is Sergio, and I am a researcher and teacher of the department of computer science in the University of Salamanca (Spain). I’m bringing you news I think you’ll like. From the University of Salamanca, we’ve been organizing a big event for the past year for the Pascal language community. The event will be held from July 3 to 7, 2023, in Salamanca, one of the most beautiful cities in Spain and a UNESCO heritage site. The International Pascal Congress (IPC) will be held from July 3 to 7, 2023, in Salamanca, one of the most beautiful cities in Spain and a UNESCO heritage site. The event will serve as a meeting point for all players in the software industry working with Pascal, and we’re aiming to boost the Pascal community into becoming an innovative and cutting-edge community again.

To achieve these goals, we’ll offer a variety of activities at the event so that people can get the most out of their attendance. You’ll be able to attend courses, technology presentations, and talks by keynote speakers, as well as participate in a challenge for the community. We’ll also be presenting two awards. We’ve already confirmed the attendance of several important speakers and professors who will teach courses on technologies used in the Pascal world, both Delphi and Lazarus.

For all professionals who appreciate and value the Pascal language and the tools based on it, this is a great opportunity to network, improve your skills, and learn different Pascal technologies from their creators. Your attendance will benefit not only you but also the Pascal community. The more we join, the more visibility and strength our community will have.
Regarding the price, we can tell you it’ll be quite cheap, only 295 euros (without accommodation and travel). We’re keeping the price low because we’re trying to bring together and strengthen the Pascal community and address the challenges we face together. To facilitate accommodation, we’re negotiating with hotels in the city to offer great accommodation at a good price. So if you don’t know where to go on vacation next summer, the IPC 2023 is a great option. Salamanca is a beautiful city with lots of sunshine, and you’ll be able to spend time with colleagues from the Pascal world and have a fantastic week learning and perfecting your knowledge about Pascal technologies. You can come alone or with your family, as Salamanca is a touristic city that will keep your family entertained while you enjoy the congress (we will propose some activities for your family).

More news will be coming soon 😊

Salamanca and Pascal instead of Mallorca and Bierkönig, that's worth considering!  ;)

National Ratcatcher's day is July 22nd.
I might nip over to Hamelin for that week. I'll need to look after any euros I have (pensioner), so I'll have to pass on the pascal invite.

You can drink beer in Salamanca too and it will be cheaper than in Mallorca, Salamanca, Pascal and Bierkönig :)

The University of Salamanca is more than 800 years old, it cannot be his university but he could study here, who knows. If you come, I will tell you some stories that happened here, and you will enjoy them :D

I find it hard to believe that pascal programmers would make a trip to  another country to meet if they can’t even come to IRC channel and socialize which is much easier. Is this some sort of a joke?

Taking out a few days in the year to go to some conference to socialize and listen to talks is - aside from possibly the money - definitely the nicer option. So, no, no joke.

I would love to be able to participate in this!  I unfortunately have never left my country though...  and not sure how I feel about going overseas.  Come to NY USA! :)

With the way the USA are heading in regarding women and queer rights (or already are)? No, thank you...

I kinda feel Pascal is more popular in Europe than it is in the US. Especially in Central and Eastern Europe.

Hola Sergio,

Your website does not seem to be accessible, at least at this moment, neither does your website have a security certificate, something very recommendable (and easy to implement with any free certificate), so that any search engine treats it as a suitable address.

The conference had been announced in a telegram group.
I referred him to the forum for more exposure.
The meeting is next July, time enough to announce the entire program and details.
Someone who starts so early has, in my mind, the intention to make something of it.
In any case, he deserves the benefit of the doubt.
Caution and extra controls are fine.
So is a dose of skepticism.
Just wait to see what is to come. 

Also the fact that there is no certificate for his site has been discussed in the telegram group.
He received tips for that. We will see if he will do something with it.

In telegram the user is called: Sergio Miguel Tomé

Why would I use IRC? It's not the 80s. Today people use FB/Telegram/Signal groups, Discord and forums.

The same joke as people who travel to see/listen to a concert of their favorite band when they could quietly see it on YouTube.

@Sergio: Excelente iniciativa, vendré desde Andalucía para asistir (si no tengo que tocar en un concierto en estas fechas).

They also like to censor/deplatform anyone who says politically unapproved things etc.
[...]
Irc is the only social media that I know of which allows you to write your own client in pascal.
That's actually a few good points.
