I hate Smalltalk!

A friend of mine sent me today a link to a Smalltalk-based web framework. That reminded me that I talked to my landlord last week. He is raising my rent because he lost his job. He could not find a job for 3 months. I asked what are his skills, and he told that he was doing Smalltalk programming last 5 years. He looked at some job-seekers web sites, and everybody wants some web stuff (big surprise!) which he have no clue about. He is considering taking some HTML and PHP classes. I am sure there is a morale here. There must be one, because my rent went up, and I feel that Smalltalk (or rather its demise) is responsible for that.

Smalltalk was always a little bit like Latin to me. That is, if you learn Latin at school, it'll be easier for you to learn western languages later in life. But nobody expects you to actually _speak_ Latin.

i'd not advice him to spend his time for php, ruby is what he should go for. as a smalltalk programmer he will be in business right from the first sight, since smalltalk and ruby have a lot in common. besides, there's a smalltalk seaside framework for web applications -- http://www.seaside.st/

maybe it would help him to find a job earlier and he will drop your rent back to its normal =)
