9780130280916: Squeak: Open Personal Computing and Multimedia

Appropriate for Multimedia courses in Computer Science Departments.

Draws on the Squeak community: the student, the researcher, the multimedia developer, the open source developer, the hobbyist, and the professional, to assemble a compelling vision of programming with Squeak. Squeak is based on Smalltalk-80 and is the only tool that allows users to explore computer music, digital sound, advanced user interfaces, 3-D computer graphics, Flash animation, and virtual machine creation (such as for embedded systems) across Windows, Macintosh, and Linux. This book is an excellent reference.
