Alive and Kicking

This presentation will discuss some successes stories around Smalltalk such AMD 64 bits, OOCL (http://www.oocl.com/), MediaGenix (www.mediagenix.tv), LAMRC (http://www.lamrc.com), netstyle.ch or yesplan.be. Then I will talk about Pharo and the recent advances in Pharo 20 and 30 alpha. More importantly I will give an overview of all the partners and shows that Pharo is composed of a really strong community of academic partners, research groups and companies. In addition I will stress that Pharo is YOUR open-source platform and that if you start to consider it as it then suddenly you realise that you want to improve it and that you can get an impact and influence Pharo's future and your future. I will finish by an key example showing the
essence of object-oriented programming and prove to the audience that this is because of such example that Pharo is one of the best system to understand deeply object-oriented programming from its roots.
