Briefly about me
I'm 21 y.o. male student from Russia.
About my study
I am a student of the Nizhny Novgorod State Technical University; specialization: IT and information security. I'm going to get the bachelor degree this summer
IT&CS related interests: software design, data analysis, neural networks
My non-Smalltalk experiences so far
VoIP software sustainer since 2008: C, C++, embedded development, VxWorks
Currently I'm tightly studying Common Lisp. Also I have the basic knowledge of Prolog, Python, Scheme.
Some most notable projects I've finished for the last 5 years of studying:
- Simple client-server chat system for Windows (C++, - City competition among schools '2005)
- Simple distributed Monopoly game for Windows (C++, 2008)
- Simple multiplayer fighting game (C++, CLI, 2008)
- Simple neural network CAM application (C, GTK, Cairo, - course work, 2008)
My Smalltalk experiences so far
- Simple Twitter-like online microblogging service prototype (Pharo, Seaside, GLORP, PostgreSQL, - course work, 2009)
- I'm developing a simple CMS with Seaside and Magritte for educational purposes.
- I'm writing a X Window System binding for GNU Smalltalk using cObject FFI (but this activity was deferred a bit, I am tight on schedule these days)
Why am I interested in Smalltalk?
Smalltalk is unique language and environment. I really like it and I'm enjoying the development with the Squeak, Seaside, Magritte and GLORP.
Will I stay with Smalltalk after the finished project?
Of course, yes.
