Smalltalk is both a powerful language -- you can get a lot of activity out of a few lines of code -- and a powerful program development environment. This book is intended for both beginners as well as experienced Smalltalk programmers.

Since this tutorial is intended to be on the language itself, discussion of the development environment will not be covered in great detail. Focus will be placed on the parts of the language that are common to, and uniform across, all platforms.
