Jens @moenig (attorney, lawyer) is an awesome guy you can meet at Scratch Connecting Worlds. A family man with office in his garden works as both attorney and software developer for mioSoft. In between he consistently finds time to develop Snap! formerly known as BYOB or Build Your Own Blocks (and before that Chirp). It is a Scratch variant in use at universities worldwide. E.g. to teach the course The beauty and joy of computing at Berkeley. Jens and Scratch, it's kind of a love story, well documented since 2008.
The first European conference on Scratch will be held July 25-27 in Barcelona. Educators, researchers, developers and other members of the worldwide Scratch community are gathering to celebrate and share the creative possibilities of Scratch.
