Pharo is the cool new kid on the object-oriented languages arena. It is Smalltalk-inspired. It is dynamic. It comes with a live programming environment in which objects are at the center. And, it is tiny.
But, most of all, it makes serious programming fun by challenging almost everything that got to be popular.For example, imagine an enviroment in which you can extend Object, modify the compiler, customize object the inspector, or even build your own the domain-specific debugger. And, you do not even have to stop the system while doing that.
In this talk, we show hands-on how live objects look like and we get to play with them in multiple scenarios. We leave it up to you to decide if it is serious enough.
