¡IMPORTANT NOTICE! – This will be a joint meetup with MobileMKE and not on RubyMKE's usual night.
RubyMotion is a relatively new way to build native iOS applications. But how does it work? Does it really produce native applications or are you adding overhead? Does this approach limit your access to the official SDKs? More importantly, WHY would you want to consider this alternate toolkit instead of just using Xcode and Objective C?
This talk will answer all those questions and give you a good overview of the exciting community springing up around RubyMotion. Whether you’re an Objective C curious about what else is out there or you’re a Rubyist refusing to learn Objective C but wanting to publish native apps, this talk will be of interest to you. Also, since RubyMotion is a commercial product with no demo, this will be a great opportunity to check it out without laying out any hard-earned cash.
About The Presenter
Joel Clermont is primarily a PHP and C# developer, but has recently begun a tawdry love affair with Ruby. He is currently an organizer of the Milwaukee PHP User Group and also helps organize the MobileMKE group.
After the Meeting
Since we will be a little further north we’ll take a pole as to weather to still head down to Transfer Pizza (101 W Mitchell St), or stick around the Third Ward after the meetup for refreshments & conversation. Everyone is welcome, and encouraged, to join us.
