Biography for Pablo Estefo

Briefly about me

I am Pablo Estefó, a 23-year-old chilean undergraduate student (last year) in Computer Science at the University of Chile.

About my study

I am an undergraduate student (last year) in Computer Science at the University of Chile. 

My interests

I'm interested in software visualization as an effective way to assess software evolution and software quality issues.  I am also interested in agile methodologies, UI & UX and teamwork.

My non-Smalltalk experiences so far

I have worked on several different languages for some assignments at university and small personal projects, some of them are: python(django), Java, scheme/racket, C and PHP.

My Smalltalk experiences so far

I've been developing with Smalltalk since 2011. In that time I've been working mainly on TestSurgeon (, a tool that provides a visualization for test difference execution which guide test refactoring. TestSurgeon uses Spy (profiler), Spec/Glamour (UI) and Roassal (visualization). Last summer (southern hemisphere) I did an internship at ObjectProfile on a project related to Roassal and Amber.

Why am I interested in Smalltalk?

Because I think is a beautiful language because of its purity of object oriented design and its simple but powerful syntax. Environments where you can work provide a completely different developing experience you can not found working with other programming languages. Those environments promotes the use of good practices in development. 

Will I stay with Smalltalk after the project is finished?

Of course. This project is an opportunity for popularize both Roassal and Amber so I think good ideas will come involving those softwares.
