Submission + - New Squeak Smalltalk Book Now Available (

Abcd1234 writes: With the recent announcement of the Give 1 Get 1 OLPC program, and the growing popularity of software such as Seaside and Croquet, the arrival of "Squeak By Example", a freely available book covering the popular Squeak dialect of the Smalltalk programming language, seems all the more timely. Within, readers will find a gentle introduction to the language and environment, along with hands-on examples and exercises suitable for novices, teachers and developers alike. With OLPC computers soon to be in the hands of children throughout the world, such a resource could prove valuable to those interested in developing new applications for the platform.
