Smalltalk and Object Orientation

Smalltalk and Object Orientation

This free book covers Smalltalk style, typical Smalltalk bugs, way to develop a Smalltalk program and testing of 0-0 systems. Explains Unified Modeling Language, and Object Modeling Technique. This book was originally written to support an introductory course in Object Orientation through the medium of Smalltalk (and VisualWorks in particular).


However, it can be used as a book to teach the reader Smalltalk, to introduce object orientation as well as present object oriented design and analysis. It takes as its basic premise that most Computer Scientists / Software Engineers learn best by doing rather than from theoretical notes. The chapters therefore attempt to intro duce concepts by getting you the reader to do things, rather than by extensive theoretical discussions. This means that these chapters take a hands -on approach to the subject and assume that the student/reader has a suitable Smalltalk environment available to them.
