Cocoa Scripting at CocoaHeads Thu Aug 9

Tomorrow night's Silicon Valley CocoaHeads will feature a session on Cocoa scripting bridges. Bill Bumgarner of Apple will talk about scripting with Python, Ruby, AppleScript, and some parts of what's coming in Leopard.

The idea for this session came from an informal poll last month, so your wish has been granted and so forth. The meeting is in Town Hall in Building 4. Thanks to Chris Hanson for getting this new location for us.

Town Hall, Building 4 Apple

If you enter the campus from the main De Anza driveway, turn left and follow the road all the way around until you see the gigantic 4 on the sidewalk. Walk up and knock so that someone can let you in.

There's no fee or pre-registration required. You can just show up. In addition to the featured presentation, CocoaHeads is a great place to get help with Mac programming, and we often have time at the end for demos or feedback on current projects.

If you'd like to read up on the topic a bit, take a look at PyObjC and RubyCocoa.

We're thrilled to have Bill come and give this talk at any time, but we particularly appreciate him finding time right before a major OS release. If you'd like to see more talks like this, please come and show your support.

See you there.

Saw Bill's session on writing Cocoa apps in scripting environments at this year's WWDC. It was great and I'm looking forward to getting my hands dirty with RubyCocoa soon.

Too bad I didn't know about CocoaHeads before I left the Bay Area... sigh.

I'll be there, but I won't have the powerbook shuffle with me this time.

Is it possible to post the meeting on youtube? I would like to go but I live in So Cal...

There were noises about it, if I remember, but given that nobody's manning the cameras, and it seems like everyone's been busy as of late...

That and there's a sticky wicket: what if some sensative developers-only info slipped out at the meeting? Sure, we're all developers, and if it's stuff that was at WWDC, it's fine. But then, would that meeting mysteriously not get posted? Would there be minutes of video redacted?

Darn. The more I think about it, the hairier it gets.

Looking forward to it.

If all goes well I'll be there!

Video recording is not all that simple, and can sometimes put a damper on the event at the time. I'm sure we'll get to a point where it's a normal part of the process, but right now the focus is on the meeting itself.
