The Revenge of Smalltalk

2 June, 2009

Despite recent discussions over what killed Smalltalk, there continues to be lots of interest in the language and in Seaside in particular. Anyone based near London will be able to find out more about both topics at a talk dramatically titled “Seaside: The Revenge of Smalltalk“.

This “Geek Night” is going to cover how Smalltalk makes web development different and how Seaside is being put to use in the “Real World”. Participants will learn about real object-orientated programming rather than class-orientated programming.

The two presenters are Lukas Renggli, who will be talking about Squeak and the world of Open Source Smalltalk; and Michel Bany from Cincom who will be discussing how Seaside and Smalltalk has been used in companies like JP Morgan.

The talk is hosted by Thoughtworks‘ London office on Monday 6th July, 2009 from 7:00pm—10:00pm.

    Hello –

    I blog over at TechRepublic, and Smalltalk is something that I have been wanting to do a more in-depth piece on. Would it be possible to get a copy of the slide deck and any other presentation materials? I’ve been having a tough time getting information on Smalltalk and Seaside in a format that I can review quickly to get a good overview of it.

    Though Smalltalk is not that popular these days, there is a new renaissance in Smalltalk development, thanks to Squeak.In the process of my learning I have collected some good sites (more than 200) related to Smalltalk and Squeak (lessons, tutorials and programming). If you are interested take a look at the below link.
