Smalltalk Renaissance is a non-profit advocacy organization whose mission is to promote and advance the use of Smalltalk in the modern age of Information Technology development, in particular, as it relates to the Web (both on the client side, as well as the server side). This campaign is known as the Smalltalk Renaissance Program, and consists of three parts:

  1. Obtain the support of key movers in the Smalltalk community and hopefully work toward some consensus.
  2. Obtain major corporate sponsorship. Today, a programming language cannot compete in a highly fragmented field, where numerous candidates are vying for developer attention, without a major backer. The language must stand out with PR exposure, and this pretty well requires the imprimatur of corporate sponsorship.
  3. Show solid evidence of Smalltalk’s advantages from industry and academics. This should be quantifiable through comparative case studies.
