At the RISC OS User Group Of London meeting on Monday 19th May 2014 we will be looking at the Scratch beginners programming language and the Squeak/Smalltalk environment on which it is based.
We are very pleased that long time Squeak developer Tim Rowledge will be joining us via video call from his home in Canada. He has been an advocate of ARM based systems since the 80s and did the original port of Smalltalk to RISC OS while it was in beta testing. Since then it has been all Smalltalk (of various forms) on ARM (of various forms) up to the present Squeak on Raspberry Pi.
Tim has recently been working on optimising Squeak for the Raspberry Pi, on Linux and RISC OS, and is happy to answer questions about its history and recent developments. ROUGOL meetings are free so come along and join in the discussions.
