Biography: Arden Thomas started using Smalltalk in 1986, when he was researching and exploring better ways to do software development. He found it! Smalltalk and object-oriented were such a profoundly improved approach to software development, that he made a full commitment to using Smalltalk. Arden used Smalltalk in his post-graduate work thesis and projects, as well as building applications for factory floor control for IBM.
Arden has worked for Parcplace Systems, ParcPlace-Digitalk and ObjectShare in a number of capacities including developer, trainer, architect, consultant, and sales SE. Arden worked for a hedge fund, which ran hundreds of applications in VisualWorks 24/7 to provide traders with decision-making information and tools.
Arden, who is currently the product manager of Cincom Smalltalk, has a blog titled “Less is More,” which is an interesting principle as well as a reference to an attractive design philosophy of Smalltalk.
