Glossary » Smalltalk
One of the earliest object-oriented programming languages, Smalltalk was unique in its tight integration with a graphical user interface. Smalltalk-80 is the best-known version, which has been a dramatically significant influence on every object-oriented system afterwards. Smalltalk is known for having a very elegant and coherent object-oriented framework. Its graphical programming environment made it extremely easy to quickly program small components and prototype user interfaces. Smalltalk was also a significant influence on the design of the original Macintosh.
