September 17, 2007 — nu, ruby, meetup, speaking
A reminder: I’ll be giving a preview of Nu at the SF Ruby Meetup tomorrow night.
Since time is limited, it will mostly be a demo session. I’m planning to show some of the things that I did at C4 , talk a bit about my reasons for writing Nu, show a couple of small random examples, and then close with a fun multithreaded desktop app.
July 19, 2007 — rubyobjc, events, speaking
I’ll be giving a presentation on RubyObjC at Jonathan Rentzsch’s C4  conference. The conference is a weekend workshop in Chicago on August 10-12.
The idea behind my invitation was to get a behind the scenes look at what it takes to bridge a scripting language to Objective-C. If you’re there, I’ll give you that in painful detail (ok, I’ll try not to make it too painful) and then I’ll spice up the story with a surprise conclusion.
August 16, 2007 — nu, ruby, meetup, speaking
Bosco gave me some time to talk about Nu at the SF Ruby Meetup.
BRIDGES and BEYOND – Tim Burks will present the latest twist on his RubyObjC bridge, a new language written specifically to be a glue language for Objective-C. In a lot of ways it’s like Ruby, but in one important way, it’s Lisp. You might say that it’s “Ruby with Parentheses”, but it’s called Nu, and it’s not just for the desktop. We’ll take an in-depth look at a blog server written in Nu that has a built-in Objective-C webserver, a Nu page templating engine, and an ActiveRecord-style ORM based on Apple’s CoreData framework.
Tuesday, September 18, 6pm.
August 14, 2007 — nu, events, speaking
I’m back home after spending yesterday with my family on the Santa Cruz boardwalk. While we were getting tossed around on the rides, someone found a URL that crashed NuBlog (such a dumb name—someone please suggest a replacement), and that had my blog down for the afternoon.
Many thanks to Wolf Rentzsch for giving me the chance to speak at C4 , and to everyone for all the kind words, backchannel chatter, and blog coverage.
