Little History Of Smalltalk
October 18, 2011Posted by on
Smalltalk is one of the well known reflective, dynamic and object oriented programming language which had been created by Alan Kay and team at PARC (Xerox Palo Alto Research Center) which is used for web application development. In 1980, Smalltalk-80 which is the first version of Smalltalk had been created and made publicly available, before that Smalltalk-71, 72 and 76 were there, but it was used within some group and it was not public.
Smalltalk-80 Version 1, specified to a small number of firms and universities for “pilot review” and execution on their platforms. In later part version 2 was released as platform independent. Two of the currently popular Smalltalk execution variants are offspring of those unique Smalltalk-80 platform independent file with object definitions. Squeak is an open source execution derived from Smalltalk-80 Version 1 and Visual Works is consequent from Smalltalk-80 version 2.
A momentous application development which has extend athwart all current Smalltalk environment is the mounting tradition of two web frameworks, Seaside and AIDA/Web, to abridge the construction of multifaceted web applications. Seaside has seen substantial market attention with Cincom, and Instantiations and Gemstone do not support it and extending it.
