Thirty Years of Smalltalk

July 8, 2010 18:20:04.860

ComputerWorld has an interview with Alan Kay - part of their "Programming Languages A-Z" series. Good stuff:

This week, we take a look at the pre-cursor to Objective-C and the foundation of much of modern programming today: Smalltalk-80. One of the men behind the language, Alan Kay, is credited not only with helping to develop the language, but also the invention of object-oriented programming as a concept, and even inventing a personal computer concept that has eerie similarities to the iPad.

Follow the link for the actual interview.
