Please consider this a pre-announcement for the event to be held in two

For those who've never heard of Pharo, it's a fork of Squeak.  For those
who've never heard of Squeak, it's an implementation of Smalltalk.  And
if you've never heard of Smalltalk, this will be a great opportunity to
learn something about it.  Please consider responding to the queries below.

but first, a hello.

My name is Sean Allen and I will be leading a class on Smalltalk
development and the Pharo environment in particular at the April 27th
hack. If you are considering going, please take a moment to answer
this short survey so I have an idea of how I should tailor the class.
Expect followups. Hopefully the 27th will be such a rousing success
that everyone wants me back.

Thanks, in advance for your time.
