Project Highlight: Pharo and Git
Iceberg is a set of tools that allow one to handle git repositories directly from a Pharo image. Right now we support only git, but Iceberg is designed to allow other code versioning systems in the future. The final aim of Iceberg is to become the default repository manager for Pharo-core, allowing for smoother and faster integration of contributions, as well as better branch and version management.
This is still a prototype and is not yet ready for production, but you are invited to try it and provide feedback. For more information, see https://github.com/npasserini/iceberg.

Success Story: MultiCity
Multicity partner platform is a system for geo-fence based marketing in the car rental market. It enables companies to place shops and offers onto a city map to be advertized when customers are nearby. On occurrences like the return of a rental car the system will figure out nearby advertisements and will contact the customer via mobile phone to send an offer. Received messages can act as vouchers for the offer.
Pharo has been very helpful in that project. The unique development experience made it possible to realize this project in a short time frame. The whole system of managing mobile devices, mobile messaging and geo advertisement is driven by the pharo runtime. Pharo is an integral part of development at http://2denker.de/index.en.html.
