I'm finding I now do things differently and I think better in GST. So here is the process now:-
- Break the task into pieces which seem like objects (an Object manages its own data. If in doubt I just pick a chunk of work which seems autonomous and start there)
- Make a class for the task, and then write at least one test method for the class. So in my FooBar class, there'll be a method something like:-
test [ | fooBar |
One thing I've come across with open source Smalltalks is that there is often no formal documentation for a Library.
So, coming from Java and commercial programming, I'm like "where is the documentation and an example?".
