There is a lot of potential here. I am looking forward to seeing the work
from SqC that Alan mentioned.
The developement of ObjectWeb points out the potential for Squeak. We had 6
developers (students) working 40 hours a week for 4 weeks, 2 developers
that joined the course for one week. Of the 6 core developers, only 2 had
any experience with Smalltalk and none had used Squeak. Of the other 2 one
knew Squeak and the other was learning it. Given that this was a course on
XP, not all of the time was spent in development activities. One student
estimated it would take us over a year to develop ObjectWeb in Java.
A team of developers using Squeak and XP would have a big competitive
advantage over the software companies I know in San Diego.
With the Squeak World tour promising to refactor parts of Squeak, I am torn
between forming a small company and coverting all my courses to using
>I really recomend people to try this out. The potensial is enourmous.
