Hi folks,

I’ve got a general question. I wasn’t sure where to post it in the 
Squeak lists. Since I already subscribe to this list, and I know all of 
you are very nice, I hope you won’t mind.

I’m coming to Squeak from C/C++/Java/.NET with years and years of on 
the job experience. I started by looking at Dolphin Smalltalk and 
learned a lot by reading and going through their introductory document 
at http://www.object-arts.com/docs/index.html. Does Squeak have 
something like this?

I saw Avi Bryant breezing through the Squeak UI in his talk at OSCON

about Monticello and Magma, let alone try to understand what is a 

I know from experience that I could figure all of this out with time. 
However, I would rather save some time.

Any advice is appreciated.
