MACRUBY: WHAT'S THE BIG DEAL?
Last year, Apple released MacRuby, an open source Ruby implementation
written on top of the Objective-C runtime. Writing native MacOSX
applications in Ruby without having to pay the cost of using a bridge
is now a reality. This is an important milestone for Ruby, Apple and
the Ruby community.
Matt Aimonetti explains the implementation, show how to build
desktop applications with MacRuby & HotCocoa, and discuss why Ruby
developers should add this new tool to their utility belt. Matt also talks about the future of MacRuby.
