Title: VA Smalltalk Product Update and Roadmap
VA Smalltalk continues to evolve, and I'm going to share the current state of this evolution. During this last year, we have all been working on 64-bit support. I will be describing this new capability (and some of the pitfalls along the way). And, as usual you will see the “Roadmap to the Future” for VA Smalltalk.
I have been developing software for over 50 years and Smalltalk for over half that time.. I joined the original IBM Smalltalk prototype team in 1990 and was a founding member of the IBM VisualAge Smalltalk development team. I was Team Lead and Chief Architect of IBM VisualAge Smalltalk from 1997 to 2007. In February 2007, I joined Instantiations to lead the VA Smalltalk development team. I am currently the CTO and Principal Smalltalk Architect (aka Old Dude Who Knows Smalltalk) focusing on future product architecture and development. I live in Durham, NC and work in Raleigh, NC.
