I am a fan of high-level low-level programming. I’ve been successfully mixing Smalltalk and assembly code for more than a decade.

Today’s high-level, dynamic programming languages are run on top of highly-complex virtual machines… so complex that the VMs themselves deserve being developed with high-level dynamic tools too!

Within Bee Smalltalk, SqueakNOS and now Egg Smalltalk projects I have been trying to make live-programming of system-level concerns like VMs more practical to application programmers.

I currently work for Labware and Quorum Software, where I apply my expertise to real-world challenges while pursuing a PhD in Computer Science at Buenos Aires University, where I occasionally do teaching.
