Smalltalk

Smalltalk is a programming language that was designed expressly to support the concepts of object-oriented programming . In the early 1970's, Alan Kay led a team of researchers at Xerox to invent a language that let programmers envision the data objects they intended to manipulate. Unlike C++ , Smalltalk was not built on the syntax of a procedural language; it is a "pure" object-oriented language with more rigorously enforced rules than C++, which permits some of the procedural constructs of the C language.

Although Smalltalk may continue to attract a loyal following, Java , a derivative of C++ designed for distributed systems, has become the most prevalent object-oriented language on the Web.
