Recently, I developed a hierarchial contact management system for my village which is divided based on families using pHp, MySql and XML. Integration to the main website of the village yet to be done.
My Smalltalk experiences so far
Why am I interested in Smalltalk?
I am interested in developing the brainstorming application for the web interface, as I have practised it from the book by Tony Buzan. Also, I find that Smalltalk has a great design which is an art by itself. I am promoting Smalltalk among my colleagues in the campus to use it and have a feel for it. The college is actually considering a proposal to include Smalltalk as part of the course next year.
Will I stay with Smalltalk after the project is finished?
Yes. I am excited about working in Smalltalk
