Randal Schwartz is very keen that there should be one community-supported site for collating and finding Smalltalk-related job postings. He says:
It’s been very helpful to the Perl community to get one place for all serious Perl jobs: jobs.perl.org. Because then all the smart people look there, and all the clueful employers post there, and it’s also free. And the stats at http://jobs.perl.org/about/stats show that Perl is far from dead.
I’m trying to do the same thing for Smalltalk. Please support me in that. Don’t point at other places. Get them to post at http://smalltalkjobs.dabbledb.com. It will be good for all of us overall. Truly.
The DabbleDB interface has many RSS feeds for particular areas, and can be pulled out and searched in detail. It’s also all in Smalltalk, which is a good demo.

We reported earlier that Qwaq received funding, well today Qwaq announced that it is hiring. They are looking for a Software Quality Engineer and a Senior Unix System Administrator. Qwaq builds secure 3d virtual worlds for business collaboration that is written in Squeak and Croquet. It is very exciting to watch this company grow. We will be watching.
As we previously mentioned Vassili Bykov recently left VisualWorks to join Eliot Miranda and Gilad Bracha at Cadence. Vassili was “the tools guy” at VisualWorks and contributed a huge amount to the current Smalltalk platform, from core frameworks such as Announcements to new or updated tools such as Trippy, a much enhanced inspector, and Parcel Browser–a wonderful tool for finding and browsing contributed packages. He also did much work on improving the appearance of the VisualWorks UI.
Previously Vassili worked for The Object People as an instructor and as a TOPLink developer. TOPLink is an object/RDBMS mapping software that significantly simplifies object persistence. It is similar to Glorp which is an Open Source project written by some of the same people.
I spoke with Vassili about Smalltalk. Read the rest of this entry »

Gilad Bracha is a legend in Object Oriented Programming. He is the Co-Author of the Java Language Specification and one of the major contributors to Strongtalk which has just been released by Sun under an Open Source License.
Gilad is forming a team at Cadence and is raising eye brows with his latest hires. Eliot Miranda and Vassili Bykov recently left Cincom to join Gilad at Cadence . Eliot is well-known known as a Master of Smalltalk Development. Vassili Bykov was the lead tool builder of VisualWorks. We can’t help wondering about the team of Gilad, Eliot, and Vassili. I spoke with Gilad about Cadence, Smalltalk, and Open Source. Read the rest of this entry »
