Biography for Mathieu Dehouck

Briefly about me

French 20 years old student, working on Pharo during my third year internship.

About my study

I've been studying Mathematics and Physics for two years in a prep school, then I entered third year computer sciences bachelor's. I do also study languages : Japanese, Hebrew, and so on.

My interests

I do love language learning and linguistics. Also like music, knitting, sewing and reading scientific literature (astrophysics..), and last but not least Coding.

My non-Smalltalk experiences so far

I do program C, Java, and Caml. I did a project in Caml. I also use PureData, a music oriented graphical programming tool.

My Smalltalk experiences so far

I'm in a 13 weeks internship in RMod team.

Why am I interested in Smalltalk?

At the beginning I was disappointed by the amount of possibilities, but it's very nice to change code on the run and to have a direct access to all the classes and all methods.

Will I stay with Smalltalk after the project is finished?

Of course. I'm a newbie in computer sciences and I do discover new things about VM and software engineering every day. And coding in Smalltalk doesn't give me the same feeling as programming in Java.

Will I work all summer long?

I go to ESSLLI (computational linguistic summer school) two weeks in August so I will work more in July.
