Publisher Comments:

The Squeak programming language, an open and portable Smalltalk-80 implementation, is gaining wide acceptance as an agile solution for high quality computation. This tutorial provides a complete introduction to Squeak and advanced topics for programmers interested in mastering the language and implementing programming solutions with it.

Both informative and conversational, this unique how-to guide follows a dialogue between programmer Jim and a Wizard from ObjectLand--allowing the reader to easily understand and implement solutions using Squeak's object-oriented paradigm. Beginning with an overview of object-oriented fundamentals, Squeak--A Quick Trip to ObjectLand then builds on the basics and progresses to more complex language concepts. Throughout the book, topics, goals, and "words of wisdom" are clearly outlined, allowing any programmer to gain a complete understanding of the Squeak programming environment at their own pace.

Topic coverage includes:

  • An overview of fundamental object-oriented concepts: object, class, message, method, and more
  • The basic building blocks of the Squeak programming language
  • Successful strategies for debugging and testing
  • Booleans and blocks
  • Iteration and recursion
  • Code writing: style, comment, convention
  • A glimpse into the future of Squeak

With Squeak--A Quick Trip to ObjectLand, developers have the most unique learning environment available for this practical, productive, and portable programming environment.
