Title : Pharo : an open-source Smalltalk
Résumé : Smalltalk is a dynamic reflective object-oriented programming language. Based at the beginning on Lisp and Simula, it was one of the first programming language to use a bitmap user-interface and an integrated development environment (IDE). Smalltalk has been a great influence in the development of many programming languages, including Objective-C, Java and Ruby.Many innovations in software engineering in the nineties also come from the Smalltalk community, such as Design Patterns, test-driven approach, agile software development like Extreme Programming (XP) and code refactoring. Pharo is a new open-source Smalltalk (under a MIT licence). Pharo's objective is to provide a clean, open-source and innovative Smalltalk implementation with suitable for research and business applications. Several companies and universities are using Pharo for their software development. More information are available here: http://pharo-project.org/ and http://pharobyexample.org/
