tODE: A New Development Environment for GLASS

tODE (the Object-centric Development Environment) has been under development by Dale for several years and is finally reaching the point where it can be considered as a replacement for the aging GemTools.

The basic idea of tODE is to break from the bounds of the traditional Class Browser-based development environment and to provide a set of tools that bring the developer closer to the objects he or she is working with.

tODE features an Object Shell and a deconstructed Class Browser and Debugger. tODE is not your father’s Smalltalk development environment.

Dale will discuss the basic philosophy of tODE and provide a demonstration of tODE in action.
