Slideshow In Squeak
Alright, I spent the weekend playing around with Squeak and came up with the following snippet:
| allProjects doBlock |
It basically makes a slideshow of your projects and shows them one second apart. The obvious solution didn't work:
((Project allProjectsOrdered copyWithout: Project current)
The reason is that when a project is switched, all of its threads are terminated on exit. This makes sense if you think of each project as it's own "world". So, I quickly whipped out the code in the first snippet. It was basically an understanding for me to try out different things. There's so much to explore and learn.
I want to give my presentation in Squeak and show off our great environment. I'm having fun playing around. It's funny, I've been a Squeak developer for at least a few years now and still haven't fully explored Morphic. Mainly, I've worked on backend frameworks or Seaside. But, I dabble every year for a small amount of time. The presentation will give me a reason to more fully explore the untapped potential.
