The Weekly Squeak Summary No. 14: Jul 1 - Sep 22, 2007

Michael Haupt-3
Dear Squeakers,

welcome to the The Weekly Squeak Summary, an irregular
traffic-dependent report on what's going on in the world of Squeak
based on the Weekly Squeak blog.

Highlights of the past weeks:

Squeak's documentation base has seen two significant improvements.
There now is a detailed tutorial [1] focused on the development of a
little game. The tutorial covers many aspects from Squeak installation
over unit testing to version management with Monticello. The second
important improvement is the book "Squeak by Example" [15] that covers
the entire Squeak system. The book is available for free as a PDF
download, but can also be purchased in print for very little money.

Who says Squeak isn't usable in production? Qwaq and Intel are
collaborating [18]!

The OLPC initiative's XO laptops are going into production [4], and
there finally was some credible and balanced coverage of the project
in German television [9]. More smashing news is upcoming but not yet
ready for being posted in the Weekly Squeak Summary... ;-)
