Smalltalk Koans

Smalltalk Koans will guide you as a Smalltalk novice from first steps in Smalltalk to your first small project. The path is simple: You get a task, you solve it and you learned something. The Koans Sensei (jap.: teacher) will guide you and show you e.g. Strings, Blocks, Collections and many more.
