Canoo is happy to host the Frege Day 2015, a gathering of developers and computer scientists that are interested in the Frege programming language.
Frege aspires to bring the power of Haskell to Java and is the only purely functional programming language for the Java platform. The goal of the Frege Day is to connect people of the same interest, share experiences, ask questions, see demo examples, celebrate achievements, share what is currently in the works and develop a plan for the future.
The day will end with an optional “Hackergarten” experience where we collaboratively contribute code to Frege and its connected open-source projects.
We will have attendees from industry and academia, open-source contributors, and most importantly Ingo Wechsung, the inventor of the Frege language, will join as well.
Admission is free but space is limited. Please inquire for available seats via firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the event.
Location: Canoo Engineering AG, Kirschgartenstr. 5, 4051 Basel
Date: September 11th, 2015
Times: 9 am until 5 pm (optional Hackergarten with open end)

To support the editorial staff and to implement new online functionalities like automated pages on specific topics, the German publisher General-Anzeiger was looking for a fully automated and precise IT solution. They finally decided to buy the search & analysis suite Canoo Find-it.
Canoo Find-it is seamlessly integrated into the content management system red.web and supports the editorial staff during their daily work. Similar articles are displayed even during the writing process and additional work can be eliminated. On their website, the General-Anzeiger may now create pages on specific topics, locations or organizations in which the written articles are linked automatically.
The General-Anzeiger was published for the first time on 1st December 1889. Today, the newspaper has a circulation of 72.000 copies and has won several awards.

SoCraTes Day Switzerland is a Software Craftsmanship Conference for those passionate about software development. It provides an ideal setting for speaking to and coding with other talented and engaged developers, letting us learn from and with each other.
Like its parent, the SoCraTes Conference in Germany, SoCraTes Day Switzerland is non-profit and community-focused, and provides an informal environment – but unlike the multiple day conference, it is a single day event in Zurich. Attendance is free.
It takes place on June 19th, 2015 at a convenient, central location in Zurich, in the building of the SIX Stock Exchange.
Please visit http://socrates-day.ch for more information and registration.

Another short note regarding browser automation / web testing with geb:
If you want to select the first element of a dropdown element (aka <select>) but you don’t know the title nor the label as the element are fetched from the volatile test-env database, this might help:
It works by combining the geb selector with the native selenium webdriver API (see book of Geb), in this case the Select class from Selenium.
That might be useful in the context of angular.js 1.4 as there have been breaking changes in how option elements are generated and a simple select.value(“1”) stops working.
