I am a functional programming junky. I love and ... but seems cool


If I was gonna wade into the world of smalltalk where should I start? Does implementation matter, e.g. Squeak v Pharo?

@eli_oat I used VisualAge ST decades ago, trouble is every impl is different, and your code only lives in a live database, so you just ship the whole thing. Neat for hacking, but there's no portability.

Objective-C is a nice middle ground, normal code-based lang with ST objects & messaging on top, produces normal binaries.
