[Newbies] Is There A Tutorial for People Who Have Never Programmed?

Hello William,

there is a book named "Learn programming with robots" which is aimed at 
teaching programming with Squeak.
The book can be obtained via Amazon and google turned up this page for 

Then there is Squeak by example which is meant to teach Squeak but 
assumes some programming experience.

In both cases find the accompanying Squeak images. This is because 
Squeak evolves and for newcomers it's important that the examples just 
work. Although finding out why an example did not work is a great 
learning achievement people are usually good at providing enough not 
working examples for themselves. :-)

The site Casey recommended is a great resource, it can be found here.

But you have to be a bit careful because of the differences in Smalltalk 
dialects. Which means not every example will work unmodified in a 
current Squeak image.

Other than that there are Etoys and Scratch which are based on Squeak 
but provide a graphical introduction (tile programming) into programming.

And finding an answer to Casey's question, a project that interests you, 
may get you some more results.
