My non-Smalltalk experiences so far

I have worked on several different languages for some assignments at university and small personal projects, some of them are: python(django), Java, scheme/racket, C, PHP. I have worked on mobile devices as well, last year two university colleagues and I won the first place at an Android app competition(

My Smalltalk experiences so far

First time I used Smalltalk(actually i used Pharo) was in 2011 in assignments of a Software Quality and Evolution lecture at university. In parallel, I am working  on a personal project for unit testing restructuring called: TestSurgeon. The environment I use for development is Moose environment ( and I intensively use both Glamour, Mondrian and Spy technologies.

Why am I interested in Smalltalk?

Because I think is a beautiful language because of its purity of object oriented design and its simple but powerful syntax. Environments where you can work provide a completely different developing experience you can not found working with other programming languages. Those environments promotes the use of good practices in development.

Will I stay with Smalltalk after the project is finished?

Sure, it is a perfect opportunity to meet the smalltalk community which can lead to get involved in other projects.
