1986–1987
loved this as the first environment where I could choose my editor colours. Wrote a simulator for traffic flows.
1992–1994
1993–2010
1995–1998
Developed a manufacturing shop floor scheduling program. Smalltalk was probably the only language it could have been done in at the time. Still my fave.
1999–
This is the true future
1999–2000
After my disgust with C++, I started wondering who ever thought this OOP stuff was a good idea. I took a Programming Languages survey class, which included Smalltalk. Holy crap, what was Stroustrup smoking? This stuff was beautiful! Then I realized there were incompatible runtimes, and nobody could natively run it, and... I never worked in Smalltalk for real. Still, I'll listen to any Smalltalk expert-- like the LISPers, they're a smart group, generally unafraid to go an unpopular way in exchange for great tools.
2000–2004
supercollider isn't exactly smalltalk but it's damn close
