SOM is a minimal Smalltalk dialect used to teach VM construction. It was originally built at the University of Århus (Denmark) where it was used for teaching and as the foundation for Resilient Smalltalk. Later is was also used for instance at the Hasso Plattner Institute (Potsdam, Germany).
In addition to JsSOM, other implementations exist for Java (SOM, TruffleSOM), C (CSOM), C++ (SOM++), Python (PySOM), RPython (RPySOM, RTruffleSOM) and Squeak/Pharo Smalltalk (AweSOM).
A simple Hello World looks like:
Hello = ( run = ( 'Hello World!' println. ) )
