My name is Benjamin Van Ryseghem. I am a dynamic languages developer currently working as a software engineer at Företagsplatsen, after working with them for one year as a consultant. I am a former Smalltalker, now having fun with functional languages (especially Clojure/ClojureScript). I now live half-time in Stockholm, Sweden, half-time in Brest, France.
If you want more information, please visit my resume.
SmalltalkI was a Pharo core maintainer, in charge of the IDE and the widgets framework Morphic.
I am the author of Spec, a new framework for the specification and generation of user interfaces, and Nautilus, a new code-browser for Pharo.
Among the way, I had the opportunity to publish papers:
- Seamless Composition and Reuse of Customizable User Interfaces with Spec, Benjamin Van Ryseghem, Stéphane Ducasse, Johan Fabry, Science of Computer Programming Volume 96, Part 1 (December 2014)
- Spec: A Framework for the Specification and Reuse of UIs and their Models, Benjamin Van Ryseghem, Stéphane Ducasse, Johan Fabry, Proceedings of ESUG International Workshop on Smalltalk Technologies (2012)
- Spec -- Technical Report, Benjamin Van Ryseghem (2012)
- Bootstrapping a Smalltalk, Gwenaël Casaccio, Stéphane Ducasse, Luc Fabresse, Jean-Baptiste Arnaud, Benjamin Van Ryseghem, Smalltalks (2011)
I had the opportunity to do some presentations of my work in different conferences.
Here is a short list of a handful of projects on which I worked:
- SandGlass: a time-tracker app based on Electron
- Spec: a framework for the specification and generation of user interfaces for Pharo
I sometimes write geeky articles about things I like, I did, or just find interesting.
