What does it mean when we say that developers spend most of their time figuring the system out? Why is it important? And how else could we look at this problem?
We untangle your software legacy crises. How? Take a tour guided by Wardley maps.
In this session Tudor Girba answers questions from Jacob Goodman and provides a guided tour.
How can we solve real problems without reading code? Through custom analyses.
We started a new video series entitled The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Glamorous World in which we have conversations with newcomers to Glamorous Toolkit.
Glamorous Toolkit Live #2 is now available. It's about how we use the inspector to reason about a REST API.
Glamorous Toolkit Live #3 is here. We covered example-driven development.
At IDE Summit 2020, I talked about moldable development and how we should not read code. It appeared to be at least intriguing, if not outright contrarian.
Creating a standalone app based on Glamorous Toolkit is as simple as opening an application specific window and closing the GT window. This can be achieved in just a few steps.
I had the pleasure of giving a lecture on Moldable Development as part of the Software Modeling and Analysis course from the University of Bern. This was exciting because this is the very first university course that relies on Glamorous Toolkit.
Everything can be customized in Glamorous Toolkit, including the home tab. Learn how.
I had the pleasure of giving an interactive session for the strumenta.community about how Glamorous Toolkit is built as a language made out of interactive and visual operators.
A screenshot rich tutorial on how to use Git from Glamorous Toolkit.
Episode 193 of the Greater than Code podcast (1h13m) features a conversation with Tudor Girba covering a wide spectrum of subjects ranging from optimizing for happiness to the power of storytelling and our privilege and responsibility as developers.
One of the first question people ask when starting with Glamorous Toolkit concerns the list of editor shortcuts. Indeed, these shortcuts are not yet visible in the user interface. Still, we should be able to learn these shortcuts from the system itself.
Over the past several weeks we spent a significant amount of effort on improving performance. The work affected the whole stack, and now we have results to show for our effort.
A short overview of how to edit and manipulate documents with Documenter.
In this article we explore how code comments can become a live wiki if we rely on interactive notebooks to document our systems directly inside the IDE.
Glamorous Toolkit is built in Pharo, and it enables people to work with Pharo systems. Nevertheless, its goal is distinct from that of Pharo and so is its realization.
