An Opportunity to Learn More about AppeX from Cincom Smalltalk Engineers

Posted on in Categories Smalltalk

On Wednesday, September 30, 2020, the monthly UK Smalltalk User Group Meetup will take place. The subject of this online talk will be “AppeX: Writing JavaScript in the Cincom Smalltalk IDE.”

This presentation will be given by Cincom’s Niall Ross, a longstanding aficionado of Smalltalk and UKSTUG, and experienced Smalltalk and JavaScript developer, Vladimir Degen, who works on AppeX at Cincom. 

Attendees will learn:

  • About AppeX, Cincom’s web application development framework
  • Some of the advantages of the AppeX design philosophy—lightweight, plays well with others
  • How AppeX works in the Cincom Smalltalk IDE
  • Some advantages of WYSIWYG JavaScript within AppeX

AppeX allows developers to write and manage JavaScript alongside Smalltalk. To illustrate the advantages of this approach:

  • Niall will show how users can utilize AppeX to learn and improve their JavaScript and then create and deploy JavaScript-intensive modern web applications.
  • Vlad will demonstrate some of the advantages of AppeX web development using the Chrome DevTools, in conjunction with AppeX, for debugging.
