AmbientTalk can best be summarized as “a scripting language for mobile phones”. It’s a dynamic, object-oriented, JVM-compatible, distributed programming language. AmbientTalk’s focus is on applications to be deployed in so-called “mobile ad hoc networks” – networks of mobile devices that communicate peer-to-peer using wireless communication technology, such as WiFi or Bluetooth.

We discuss how resilient mobile applications can be constructed with familiar building blocks like objects and messages, but also in what way these building blocks have to be adapted to fit the characteristics of mobile ad hoc networks.
