About the author

I've been using Ruby and Rails since 2004 on a daily basis, but I'm always excited to see how we're simplifying complex procedures and moving into new areas and not just focussing on web.

It's all about the Motion

I've been developing iOS applications for a little while now, and when RubyMotion came out I was excited at the possibility of ruby-fying the verbose syntax. I'd like to talk about how we're changing the Objective-C syntax into Ruby wrapped methods with blocks, as well as how simple it is to get into iOS development now.

In short, I'd like to cover:

RubyMotion, a simple getting started example Changing Objective-C syntax into something more readable The ups and the downs that i've seen so far and the Future

    I share some concerns about the exclusivity and general relevance of RubyMotion talks. If you're not interested in buying into the whole Apple ecosystem (Mac + iDevice + development tools, €2000+), this might not be very useful or interesting.

    As also said in http://cfp.euruko2013.org/proposals/32, I don't like the fact that RubyMotion is a commercial software with no community spirit in mind. Thus I'm not sure it fits really well with the EuRuKo spirit.
