A number of people in the Eclipse community have roots to Smalltalk; for instance I was the ENVY/Developer marketing guy at OTI. When people talk about the glory days of Smalltalk, some people can get all teary-eyed. I long for the days of ENVY config. maps.
So when I read on twitter that Mark Driver from Gartner did a blog post Remember Smalltalk?, I was interested. Mark is one of the lead Application Development analysts at Gartner. He is out there talking to lots of enterprise users. Therefore, I find it fascinanting that he is seeing momentum around Smalltalk. He even goes as far as to say ‘Smalltalk is cool again’. That is really cool to hear.
