An Introduction to Seaside

From the page on An Introduction to Seaside:

Seaside is a Web development framework implemented in Smalltalk. It allows the easy creation of powerful Web applications using high level abstractions on the application components and on the underlying hypertext transfer protocol.

While I have not read this book, I did take a dive into Squeak Smalltalk and heard a wonderful 4 hour presentation on Seaside by Avi Bryant. Seaside takes a novel approach to web application development that looks quite fun.

This book looks like a great read!

Dynamic Languages Symposium 2008

The Dynamic Languages Symposium 2008

is a forum for discussion of dynamic languages, their implementation and application. While mature dynamic languages including Smalltalk, Lisp, Scheme, Self, Prolog, and APL continue to grow and inspire new converts, a new generation of dynamic scripting languages such as Python, Ruby, PHP, Tcl, and JavaScript are successful in a wide range of applications. DLS provides a place for researchers and practitioners to come together and share their knowledge, experience, and ideas for future research and development.
