Deploying VASmalltalk on Amazon AWS ARM servers

A while ago, I did some experiments with Amazon AWS and EC2 instances. Back then, they weren’t very different from a VPS except that you were charged based on the usage and the servers were easier to grow or shrink. But… much has changed since then and AWS now offers many services and features. One … More Deploying VASmalltalk on Amazon AWS ARM servers

Recognizing objects in images with TensorFlow and Smalltalk

In this post, I will be showing a simple example of object recognition in images using the TensorFlow library from Smalltalk. Doing Machine Learning without Python? With Smalltalk? Seriously? Whenever you start entering the world of AI and Machine Learning you will notice immediately that Python has been widely accepted as the “default” programming language … More Recognizing objects in images with TensorFlow and Smalltalk

Sensor, process and transparently persist your IoT data with an end-to-end object-oriented system

Let’s suppose a typical IoT / Edge Computing developer/deployment stack: One (maybe low-level) language with its own syntax and IDE to read/write data from sensors or anything GPIO-related. Another (likely high-level) language / IDE that applies business logic at increasing complexity into the collected data. A database. It’s likely that language 1) and 2) are … More Sensor, process and transparently persist your IoT data with an end-to-end object-oriented system

Getting started with VASmalltalk, Raspberry Pi and other devices

In the previous post, I described why I personally believe that Smalltalk is a good fit for IoT. When we talk about IoT, there are millions of topics we can touch: single board computers, sensors, security, protocols, edge computing, GPIOs, AI, and so on…   But one device in particular that changed the world is the … More Getting started with VASmalltalk, Raspberry Pi and other devices

Docker Swarm ARM 64 cluster running Smalltalk

In the¬†previous post¬†we saw how to build a single-node Docker Swarm running VASmalltalk. That stack involved one web server (Traefik) load balancing across 10 VASmalltalk images running a Seaside web application. All containers in same node. Preparing the physical cluster Before getting started, know that the code has been published on Github in the same … More Docker Swarm ARM 64 cluster running Smalltalk
