Bootstrapping Squeak

In Smalltalk you typically work in an image where all the objects live and can be changed. So an image is an object memory snapshot that is maintained over time and that includes new and old objects (some of them may date back to ST-80 times).

Yoshiki Ohshima was playing with John's MicroSqueak and created a bootstrap Compiler - a first step to (re)create a Squeak image from simple "text files".

More about it here and in the README.

Pharo and ODBC

You often have to access existing databases when you develop an application. One way is to use ODBC. I created a small small screencast to show you how:

It uses SQLite3 (a tiny database implemented in a shared library) as example - but you can access any ODBC compatible database (Oracle, DB2, MySQL, MSSQL, ...) if you use the appropriate database driver.

Its my first contribution to Pharocasts and I hope to do more if time permits. Thanks to Laurent for all the support and postprocessing of the recorded video.
