> Hi,
> We are very happy to make the following announcement:
> Lam Research, a leading supplier of wafer fabrication equipment and services
> to the global semiconductor industry, is an experienced user of the Smalltalk
> programming language. Smalltalk is a key component in Lam's software control
> system for a broad range of the equipment it manufactures. Tudor Girba is a
> leading member of the tools and environment development effort in Pharo,
> having architected the Glamorous Toolkit for live programming. Eliot Miranda
> is author of the Cog virtual machine that underlies Pharo and other Smalltalk
> dialects.
> Lam has engaged Tudor and Eliot to explore potential enhancements in Lam's use
> of Smalltalk. These enhancements range from running highly optimized Smalltalk
> on low cost, single board computers, to enhancing Lam's Smalltalk development
> practices with state-of-the-art live programming. During the engagement, Tudor
> and Eliot successfully moved a key communication component of the control
> system to Pharo. It was a challenging task aimed at extending the reach of
> Lam¹s system to the Pharo world including the option of executing on ARM
> processors.
> Cheers,
> Tudor Girba, Eliot Miranda and Chris Thorgrimsson
