@temporal pity the tech is obscured behind odd language and hip PR verbage
@dekkzz78 I disagree with both your propositions.
1. "obscured behind odd language" - This tech would be rather hard to do in anything else than Smalltalk. Maybe in Lisp. Definitely not in any of the mainstream languages.
This is because it directly relies on concepts from Smalltalk (some of which are shared by Lisp), that are otherwise alien to the industry at large.
Concepts like:- Image-based development;- No isolated compilation vs. execution;- Code being stored in (or as if in) a database;
@temporal odd language wasnt a ref to pharo, just the way their site is written. im ex ibm visual age smalltalk wranger btw
@dekkzz78 I see, I misunderstood you.
