A Quick Trip to ObjectLand : Object-Oriented Programming with Smalltalk/V
A painless guide to Smalltalk for programmers with no background in Smalltalk or other object-oriented languages, A Quick Trip to ObjectLand is an unconventional introduction to an unconventional language.Unlike most programming books, this guide is written as a dialogue between the fictional ObjectiveWizard and a human programmer. The nuances of the object-oriented paradigm and Smalltalk are explained via conversations with the ObjectiveWizard, and exercises are included in the form of "To Do" lists that include progressively more difficult tasks.Designed to allow the reader to solve problems and implement solutions in Smalltalk, the book introduces advanced concepts in addition to the basic structure and syntax of the language and quickly moves on to application building.The Smalltalk code used in the book is compatible with the most popular versions of Smalltalk/V, including DOS, Windows, Macintosh, PM, and V286. With some modifications, the examples could also be used with Smalltalk-80 or other variants.
