Great news!!!

A bunch of questions, I'll ramble off...

- was that the whole team - the four of you?
- was Diego a Smalltalker too; did you meet at the event or did you know 
each other beforehand?
- was there anything in particular that led you to build the "Parent 
Support" app instead of joining another group (i.e. was the app well 
suited to Seaside/Pharo)?
- did you prepare a "kit" for the event (i.e. all the frameworks you 
thought you'd need, already loaded in an image)
- what were other groups using (especially the runner's up)

Great win for Seaside/Pharo!
