12,000 lines of RubyMotion
A Dark Room, a minimalist web based game went viral and got front page of Hacker News in June of 2013. Amir contacted Michael Townsend (the creator of the game) and asked if he could port the game to iOS. Bad news, Michael said yes. 5 months and 12,000 lines of RubyMotion later, the game was released to the App Store (as of April 10th, it's the #4 app in the App Store). Amir will talk about the pros and cons of building an app in RubyMotion. He’ll dive into the differences in syntax and semantics between Objective C and Ruby, what the testing story looks like, and how deploying to the App Store works (along with trials and tribulations associated with indie game (software) development).
