#xpman 77 - An introduction to Smalltalk
Thu 10 November 2016, 18:30 – 21:00 GMT
This month we have a practical introduction to Smalltalk with Keith Braithwaite. Doors open at half 6 to start at 7.
The most widely recognised good technical practices of Agile development have their origins in eXtreme Programming. eXtreme Programming has its origins in Smalltalk development. It is my contention that the affordances of Smalltalk and its environment have informed the underlying ideas about what code is and how we should interact with it in Agile development. In this session you will experience the Smalltalk way of working with code. Hopefully, this will illuminate the assumptions behind the technical practices that Agile teams sometimes struggle with. This will be a practical session. Please come equipped to work with a fresh installation of Pharo 5.0 No prior experience of Smalltalk is required.
