Benjamin Van Ryseghem

Dynamic Languages developer

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.

You can follow me on GitLab, on Twitter, or contact me by email.

I 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:


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.
