Video of a seminar lecture given by Dan Ingalls.
The nice thing about a language that takes hold is that you can work with it again and again. In 30 years we have built Smalltalk systems with quite different constraints. This talk will examine a few of these, and show how tricks of the trade can be applied to enhance one aspect or another and, frequently, to make real progress.
Many insights on language design, many of them not Smalltalk specific.
