Squeak, NewSqueak, and Obliq

Dave Herman

Luca Cardelli experimented with the design of a number of concurrent
programming languages in the 80's and 90's. I will discuss the design
and implementation of Squeak, a CSP-style programming language for
implementing user interface from the 80's, its 90's re-implementation
Newsqueak, and Obliq, a distributed concurrent language from the 90's
based on a notion of "distributed lexical scope."
