Squeak: Learn Programming with Robots
by Stephane Ducasse - Apress , 2005
This book will teach you core programming concepts based on simple, visual problems that involve manipulation of robots, or 'turtles'. You will learn basic programming concepts like loops, abstractions, composition, and conditionals.
Pharo by Example
by Andrew P. Black, at al. , 2009
Pharo is a development environment for the classic Smalltalk-80 programming language. This book, intended for both students and developers, will guide you through the Pharo language and environment by means of a series of examples and exercises.
Computer Programming using GNU Smalltalk
by Canol Goekel - Lulu.com , 2009
This book tries a different approach for teaching introductory computer programming than most other books by choosing Smalltalk as the programming language. A language which is mature and powerful yet not as widely used as some popular alternatives.
IBM Smalltalk Tutorial
by K. Khor, N. Chavis, S. Lovett, D. White - IBM , 1995
Since this tutorial is intended to be on the language itself, discussion of the development environment will not be covered in great detail. Focus will be placed on the parts of the language that are common to, and uniform across, all platforms.
Smalltalk-80: The Interactive Programming Environment
by Adele Goldberg - Addison-Wesley , 1983
This book is an introduction to the user interface of the Smalltalk-80 system, an illustrated description of how to explore the class descriptions available in the system, how to use the editors for implementing new class descriptions, etc.
Smalltalk-80: The Language and its Implementation
by Adele Goldberg, David Robson - Addison-Wesley , 1983
The book is an overview of the concepts and syntax of the programming language, and an annotated and illustrated specification of the system's functionality. The book gives an example of the design and implementation of a moderate-size application.
Smalltalk-80: Bits of History, Words of Advice
by Glen Krasner - Addison-Wesley , 1983
The book first describes the history of how Smalltalk was built from scratch. It then goes on to show the way in which Smalltalk was made public. The papers range from overall design issues down to statistics on the work of the VM and image contents.
The Joy Of Smalltalk
by Ivan Tomek , 2000
This textbook introduces concepts of object-oriented software development and the programming language Smalltalk. The text covers OO concepts, OO application development, Smalltalk programming environment, base classes, and elements of style.
A Taste of Smalltalk
by Ted Kaehler, Dave Patterson - W W Norton & Co Inc , 1986
This tutorial gives you a taste of programming in the Smalltalk-80 language and environment. Our approach is to guide you through several versions of a small program in a short time. The book is just a 'taste', not a reference manual.
Smalltalk/V: Tutorial and Programming Handbook
- Digitalk, Inc , 1988
Smalltalk is both a powerful language -- you can get a lot of activity out of a few lines of code -- and a powerful program development environment. This book is intended for both beginners as well as experienced Smalltalk programmers.
Smalltalk and Object Orientation: An Introduction
by John Hunt - Springer , 1997
An introduction to object-orientation for 2nd, 3rd and 4th year computer science and software engineering students or those actively involved in the software industry. John Hunt adopts a 'hands on' approach providing a thorough introduction to O-O.
Smalltalk: An Introduction to Application Development Using VisualWorks
by Trevor Hopkins, Bernard Horan - Prentice Hall , 1995
A complete guide to Smalltalk-80, containing everything a user should know to start constructing applications. A very important language for those interested in object-oriented programming, one of the hot areas in software engineering.
Practical Smalltalk: Using Smalltalk/V
by Dan Shafer, Dean A. Ritz - Springer , 1991
This book is specifically aimed at people who are interested in learning to build real-world applications using Smalltalk/V. It also includes a bit of refresher material that extends some of the information in the Smalltalk/V tutorial as well.
The Art and Science of Smalltalk
by Simon Lewis - Prentice Hall , 1995
This practical book provides an effective introduction to programming in Smalltalk, and explains the most efficient ways to think about and work with the system. The demystifies the transition from conventional programming to Smalltalk.
by W. R. Lalonde, J. R. Pugh - Prentice-Hall , 1990
An intro to the object-oriented programming language Smalltalk-80, with an emphasis on classes, subclassing, inheritance and message passing. The SmallTalk language is fully explained as well as the class library and programming environment.
Smalltalk With Style
by E. Klimas, S. Skublics, D. A. Thomas - Prentice Hall , 2004
Bridging the gap between established software engineering principles and the real-world programming, this book presents guidelines for programming in the Smalltalk language that will result in source code that is clear and easy to understand.
