Hello all,

It is my pleasure to announce a first blog which covers Aida/Web:

  	Aiding the web
	Leveraging the web with Smalltalk and AIDA/Web.
	by Damir Horvat

Damir started from scratch, coming from RoR waters and he started 
explaining his path to build a real web application:

	"I'm totaly new in world of Smalltalk. But I'm excited! From what I've 
seen, Smalltalk has many advantages over today's most popular choices 
(or companies best practices, if you will) used in web programming.

Here, I'll try to document all steps taken during building web 
application with AIDA/Web framework. The application will be billing 
system for small companies. It should include as many aspects of niche 
as possible: issuing invoices, tax, customers list, notifying, XML 
import/export, PDF generation and whatever features should prove to be 

Note, however, I haven't yet started writing this application. I don't 
event have required software installed. This is from-ground-up approach 
and I challenge you to follow me. Even more, I dare you to surpass me 
with your additions and features."

Best regards

Janko Mivšek
