Biography for Guido Chari

Briefly about me

I'm from Argentina, 26 years. I get involved with Smalltalk since 3 years ago when i met Hernán Wilkinson at the University on his Object Oriented Paradigm Subject. Since that moment, i started studying, investigating and working with the paradigm in general and with Smalltalk in particular.

About my study

I'm currently developing my master degree thesis at the Buenos Aires University (UBA) for the computer science career. My thesis is involved with Smalltalk, operating systems and virtual machines.  

My interests

I'm interested on investigation on the software area. The evolution of models, reducing the semantic gap and benchmarking software are some of my interests. Also some low level stuff as operating systems and virtual machines. 

My non-Smalltalk experiences so far

I worked for some companies that develop systems with other languages, mostly web-based like Java, Perl, Php, .Net for five years. I also did some programming with those languages at university. Besides, i helped at university as an assistant for one subject. 

My Smalltalk experiences so far

My first expierence was at university, 3 years ago. I studied all the year object paradigm subjects that required programming with Smalltalk to pass. The last two years i worked for a company that develop its software with Smalltalk. I also attendee to the three Smalltalks conferences in Buenos Aires.

Why am I interested in Smalltalk?

I like to design and develop software, i studied for that and i think Smalltalk is the best tool today for doing that stuff well. I think developing software is one important piece of computer science. The most interesting and complete theory for developing software i heard about  is the object oriented one, and Smalltalk fits well into that theory.    

Will I stay with Smalltalk after the project is finished?

I hope that.
