In this short course, we’ll look at the Seaside Web Framework, covering topics such as:

  • Introduction to Smalltalk
  • Introduction to Seaside 3.0 (new!)
  • Persistence solutions
  • Integration with jQuery and other Ajax tools
  • If time permits, the Pier content management system

Demonstrations will be performed with the Open Source Squeak programming environment, although the knowledge will also apply to other environments, such as VisualWorks, GNU Smalltalk, or GemStone/S.

After completing this course, you’ll have a basic understanding of building and deploying a web application using Seaside.

The material was amazing. Passing out a Squeak image so each of us could follow along on our own worked beautifully. There was a LOT of material: covering Smalltalk, Seaside, and some of its common add-ons, and it felt a bit rushed, but it worked pretty well.
