Abstract: Roassal is an agile visualization engine. Roassal graphically renders objects using short and expressive Smalltalk expressions. A large set of interaction facilities are provided for a better user experience. Painting, brushing, interconnecting, zooming, drag and dropping will just make you more intimate with any arbitrary object model. Roassal is used in dozen of commercial or open source projects and is available under the MIT license. This presentation will demonstrate the latest advances of Roassal using Pharo and VisualWorks
