Love Smalltalk Still!

I am working in Smalltalk again (for the last year and a half now) so it is easy to forget what it was like to use other tools and languages. Recently some of my old coworkers were laid off from their jobs and I was in contact with them about learning a different language (say C# or Java). They were interested in making their resume more appealing to local employers. These discussions reminded me how much I love Smalltalk.

With Smalltalk, the tools are great, the language doesn’t get in the way or fight you, simple things are very simple and hard things are appropriately hard, source code control systems are awesome. You work with a feeling that anything is possible – even the impossible.

Happy Holidays Smalltalkers!
