Froth Smalltalk by Mark Lee Smith

Mark will tell us about his Froth Smalltalk and how implementation is going, and if time permits he will discuss Rich Hickey's idea of Reducers in Ruby, which could be applied to Smalltalk without much effort.

    Always impressed with people's little projects. It was impressive to see the group port the work to another Smalltalk following the presentation.

    Very cool. Mark has implemented a minimal Forth image and Virtual Machine in Smalltalk. He had implemented it in GNU Smalltalk. After a short explanation of what Forth was doing and then a demo of it running, the group as a whole ported it to run on Squeak. The implementation was around 400 lines of Smalltalk and we managed to complete the port by the end of the evening, in the process learning something about porting between Smalltalks and also how the implementation of Forth worked. Satisfying and good fun. Nice to see everyone again.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
