IBM has given up on Smalltalk… not!


You may think that IBM has completely left the Smalltalk arena and is a clean Java shop nowadays. But there’s more to the story than you might think. IBM is still using Smalltalk in many areas:

So it seems even though IBM has given their VisualAge product to another vendor and surely markets Java / Eclipse and, of course, their Rational Application Developer extension of Eclipse, there still seems to be a lot going on in Smalltalk at IBM. Not sure what I want to say with this, but I find it interesting😉
