  • Type: Talk


VA Smalltalk continues to evolve, and I'm going to share the current state of this evolution. During this last year, we have all been diligently refreshing product features. I will have some exciting new capabilities to show together with the “Roadmap to the Future” for VA Smalltalk.


I have been developing software for almost 50 years. I joined the original IBM Smalltalk prototype team in 1990 and was a founding member of the IBM VisualAge Smalltalk development team. I was Team Lead and Chief Architect of IBM VisualAge Smalltalk from 1997 to 2007. In February 2007, I joined Instantiations to lead the VA Smalltalk development team. I am currently the CTO and Principal Smalltalk Architect focusing on future product architecture and development. I live in Durham, NC and work in Raleigh, NC.
