Biography for Benjamin Van Ryseghem

Briefly about me

I am a 25 years old student doing Smalltalk since 3 years. I have been converted by Stef, and now I am spending a lot of time in RMoD team on Pharo :)

About my study

I am currently finishing the first year of my master degree in computer science in Lille, France.

My interests

I am interested in different topics like bootstraps, UIs, continuos integration, etc

My non-Smalltalk experiences so far

I (sadly) did a lot of Java (mainly for lectures), some COBOL, Ruby, Python etc

My Smalltalk experiences so far

So far in Smalltalk I have done some nice projects:

- Nautilus: the new default code browser of Pharo

- Spec: a new framework for generating UIs

- Hazelnut: dynamically bootstrapping Pharo from Pharo

- Morphic library maintaining

- and some more projects you can find in Pharo (RecentMessageList, Finder, MessageBrowser etc)

Why am I interested in Smalltalk?

Because it's freaking cool :) 

Will I stay with Smalltalk after the project is finished?

Of course I will :)
