Biography for Mikaël Smaha

Briefly about me

I am a curious and open-minded student of 23 years old.

About my study

I was self-educated in computer science before my bachelor.
Now, I am a student that has just completed a master in computer science.

My interests

I really enjoy to contribute to open source community and I think gsoc is a real opportunity to start.
Otherwise, I take an interest in challenges and self-improvement.

My non-Smalltalk experiences so far

I have a broad knowledge about computer science (except hardware).
I have experimented about 20 languages and I have done significant projects in C (game of life, parser, optimization of machining line), in Java (collaborative editor, control of robot motion) and in Python (django website).

My Smalltalk experiences so far

I have just discovered Smalltalk this year in different classes (this school is the major Smalltalk'center of France). So, I do not have important experiment however I discover very interesting thinks in "Meta" class.

Why am I interested in Smalltalk?

I like this language because it is a transparant, flexible, reflexive and oriented-object one ; and I appreciate also that this open space of creation is just designed on simple and few concepts.

Will I stay with Smalltalk after the project is finished?

I will see...
