New Squeak Smalltalk book published

  • I downloaded the book and started following its examples over the weekend.

    It is fast-paced, yet a gentle introduction to Squeak. It took me gently past the parts of the GUI and the code browser that tripped me up in other tutorials.

    The authors are giants in the Smalltalk world, and I look forward to learning more from them.
