Pharo is a new generation reflective language and programming environment. In this lecture we will present Pharo: its elegant syntax fitting in a postcard, its pure object model. We will show that we can create a full REST server in less than a page of code.
But Pharo is more than that. With Pharo you will interact with live objects. You will learn how to code in the debugger. Finally this lecture is much more than Pharo. We will revisit the fondation of object-oriented programming after this lecture you will never program the same in ANY object-oriented programming languages. Pharo will fundamentally changes your perception about what OOP is.
All the material of the lecture is also available as a MOOC followed by more than 9000 students worldwide. http://mooc.pharo.org
PharoThings is a live programming platform for IoT (Internet of Things) projects based on Pharo. It includes development tools to lively program, explore and debug remote boards (Raspberry Pi).
I'm an Inria Research Director. I lead RMoD team http://rmod.lille.inria.fr. I'm expert in language design and reengineering. I worked on traits. Traits have been introduced in Pharo, Perl, PHP and under a variant into Scala and Fortress. I'm expert on software quality, program understanding, program visualisations, reengineering and metamodeling. I'm one of the developer of Moose, an open-source software analysis platform http://www.moosetechnology.org/. I created http://www.synectique.eu/ a company building dedicated tools for advanced software analyses. I'm one of the leader of Pharohttp://www.pharo.org/ a dynamic reflective object-oriented language supporting live programming. I wrote couple hundred articles and several books. According to google my h-index is 53 for more than 12300 citations. I like to work with people and help them growing.
