Steve Waring's Smalltalk Journal

February 3, 2003 Written by Charles Cook Byte August 1981

My recent entry on continuations led to Steve Waring's Smalltalk Journal via Chris Double. Steve has an interesting piece on his implementation of SWScheme which is written in Dolphin Smalltalk.

Although I've never used the language, Smalltalk was my first introduction to object-oriented programming because of the August 1981 Smalltalk-focused issue of Byte. It was heady stuff, not least because of the GUI-based development environment. The article Design Principles Behind Smalltalk from that issue is well worth reading.
