If you are just getting into Smalltalk there are a lot of resources on the net. This page is by no means an exhaustive list, but it should get you started.

I suggest you start by reading Dan Ingall’s Design Principles Behind Smalltalk and then download either Squeak or Pharo (a fork of Squeak). Both are good open source Smalltalk implementations with large and helpful communities. Once you’ve read some books and gone through the tutorials, read every post on Ramon Leon’s blog (start with his top posts). I’m not kidding, Ramon does a very good job of writing about practical programming with Smalltalk.
