Inspired by Logo, Smalltalk is a programming language and environment originally designed for children at Xerox PARC in the 1970s with the clear vision that computers should be graphical and fully programmable. It became the birthplace of so many ideas that we identify as universal computer concepts nowadays, such as desktops, object orientation, overlapping windows, dropdown menus or icons.

Since Scratch was initially developed in Smalltalk, and being Jens Mönig a Smalltalk developer himself, many of its ideas permeated into Snap!, and more are sure to come further down the line.

In this live demonstration we will take a look at Smalltalk and we will try to convey what makes this environment so powerful and revolutionary, even 50 years after it was first conceived.
