Ruby expert – Chris Chan will host the Ruby-Cocoa scripting topic for us.

We will cover Ruby basics, Cocoa and Ruby syntax comparison and sample code.

Apple added official support to Ruby scripting, first, in Leopard. You can find Cocoa Ruby project template in Xcode. Everything in Cocoa can, basically, be mapped to Ruby through the RubyCocoa bridge.

You can have a Cocoa application project that mixes Ruby and Objective-C source files. This adds a lot more flexibility in developing our applications.

We are looking forward to see how we can leverage the beauty of Ruby in Cocoa application from Chris that evening.
