For the UKSTUG 2023 holiday meeting, Simberon's David Buck will present
Over the past 8 years, David has been developing a Smalltalk virtual
machine. He used it to release two Smalltalk Games written in VisualWorks
to run on Andriod and iPhone devices. More recently, he's re-written the VM
to use its own bytecode set and written his own Smalltalk compiler to make
it a stand-alone Smalltalk environment called Beagle Smalltalk named after
the ship that took Darwin on his voyage of discovery. David plans to
release this as an open-source Smalltalk to help and encourage kids to
explore the world of programming.
In this talk, David presents the current status of the project and where he
hopes to go with it.
David Buck is the president of Simberon ( http://simberon.com/ ) - a
company that has been providing Smalltalk training and consulting for over
25 years. Along with James Robertson, David produced the Industry
Misinterpretations podcast and later the Smalltalk Reflections podcast with
Craig Latta. David remains a Smalltalk enthusiast and works to spread the
word about Smalltalk.
This will be an online meeting from home.
