The next meeting of the UK Smalltalk User Group will be on Wednesday, June

Fabio Niephaus (https://fniephaus.com) will talk to us about TruffleSqueak (
https://github.com/hpi-swa/trufflesqueak), a Squeak/Smalltalk VM and
Polyglot Programming Environment for the GraalVM (https://www.graalvm.org).

He is a Ph.D. student within the Software Architecture Group (
https://hpi.de/swa) at the Hasso Plattner Institute, University of Potsdam,
Germany. He has strong interests in dynamic programming languages, virtual
execution environments, and software development tools.

Fabio will talk about the motivation for his research in the field of
Polyglot Programming. With a live demo, he will show how TruffleSqueak can
be used as a polyglot IDE for other languages such as Java, Javascript,
Python, R, or Ruby. He will also introduce us to the GraalVM ecosystem and
discuss his experience in writing a Smalltalk VM in Truffle, GraalVM's
language implementation framework.

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

If you'd like to join us, please sign up in advance at the meeting Meetup's

meeting details.
