CodeParadise: a better place for the next generation of coders - Wednesday, August 26th

 The next meeting of the UK Smalltalk User Group will be on Wednesday, August 26th.

In this meeting, Erik Stel will present his current project - CodeParadise.


CodeParadise is a cloud based platform (to be) to learn to program using Object Oriented principles within a Smalltalk environment.

CodeParadise is still in very early development, but some of its results have seen interest from the community. Therefore a presentation will provide insight in the design, current status, and possibilities of the results so far.

The discussion afterwards can be used for both in-depth technical topics as well as the more philosophical topics about programming (as warmth and/or beer consumption will guide us).


Given the current COVID-19 restrictions, this will be an online meeting from home.

If you'd like to join us, please sign up in advance on the meeting's Meetup page to receive the meeting details. Don’t forget to bring your laptop and drinks!


Update 13 September 2020: a recording of the presentation is now available on Vimeo.

And for some reason I got chosen to go first: Anatomy of an IDE Using a few example IDEs we are going to look at what makes an IDE valuable. Building software is a complex business, software that works and stays in production for years. It is a craft that involves engineering, insight and skill. The tools that we use to build that software are vital enablers to our success. Between 1997-2004 the dominance of Java and the main vendors’ tools strategies led to something of a stagnation for IDEs. But since then with the return to language diversity and the broadening of platforms there has been a real opportunity to experiment with what an IDE is and means and to look at how it could evolve. We will look at a range of IDEs including WebVelocity, Cloud9 and Codea and cont
