Pharo MOOC notes

2 min read

This tried to be annotations using hypothesis on the Pharo MOOC I started today, but this didn't work (after trying to share hypothesis annotations publicly the MOOC platform asked for credentials), so I'll try an alternative approach by making annotations here as I advance through the lessons. This would be like notebook annotations you take when you listen your teacher or go to class.

I will put the title of the lesson with the respective note and also some other details to guide other learners. If a note is too long I will create an indepedent content. All content related to the Pharo MOOC will be tagged as to make it browsable from here.

1.3. Pharo Vision

While explaining the ecosystem metaphore, Steph talk about Universities, Research Groups and Companies. Would be good to enrich that ecosystem by adding non-institutional places, like hacker/maker spaces and hobbist practitioners and communities around the world (and a Roassal world visualization on where are they would be nice! :-) ).

On the "You can help and get impact" and "Pharo is an Enabler" slides, I have experience this by myself. Maybe linking some testimonies here, particularly from newbies like myself, could show how this empowerment works in practice (complementing Ben's quote on more advanced subjects).

Showing small and big companies in the "Industrial Members" slide is a testimony of this enabling tecnology for several sizes, dealing with the complex problems of the big ones, but also empowering the smaller in a diverse ecosystem.

The transcript from the video "1.2. [Lecture] Pharo: An Immersive Object-Oriented System" of the Pharo MOOC says:

Every graphic element of Pharo that you click on...  - With Cmd+Shift+Option,  - you'll get a little menu around the graphic element.

I don't get this halo directly, by presing Ctrl + Shift, which can be a little confusing. What I get is a contextual menu that let's me to select the halo after that. (image above).

After that I need to go to the add halo menu. It's kind of indirect, compared with the previous behavior.

The combination that works is `Shift`+`Alt`+`MiddleClick`. (Thanks to Ben Coman, for the answer).
