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
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
Previously… In the previous post we saw an introduction to Docker and Linux containers and one possible usage for Smalltalk. We saw how to create the Dockerfile for a Seaside web application developed and running within VASmalltalk , build a Docker image, and finally run a container with it. However, one of the conclusions from … More Now, single-node Docker Swarm and Smalltalk

But “the thing” started way before that. I think Tim Rowledge started with some GPIO lib wrapper in Squeak. Louis LaBrunda was interested on having that on … More Another example of how great the Smalltalk community is
