The following introduction to Smalltalk for Java and C/C++/C# programmers is by David Buck of Simberon and is reproduced here with his kind permission. If you'd be interested in formal training contact Simberon and ask about Smalltalk training


I hear from many Java and C# programmers that they can't read Smalltalk code. Smalltalk is actually very easy to learn since it has very little syntax. The true power of Smalltalk lies in the environment and the class libraries.

This article is intended to give Java and C# programmers an extremely rapid plunge into Smalltalk. I'll do that by using side-by-side code comparisons.
