This talk will describe the internals of RubyMotion, a Ruby toolchain for iOS development. RubyMotion is different from CRuby in many ways and this session will focus on the technical differences and explain what makes RubyMotion unique.
In this short documentary film, we explore Ruby's beloved and mysterious character Why the Lucky Stiff (_why). Matz created Ruby and _why created his (poignant) Guide to Ruby, with musical soundtrack, to spread the Ruby love to people outside the Land of the Rising Sun. This documentary celebrates _why's art and features interviews with TenderLove, MeNTaLguY, Steve Klabnik, Flip, Geoffrey Grosenbach, and Matz. And rabbits and cartoon foxes.

The robotics revolution has already begun. You can buy drones and robotic devices at local retail stores. Unfortunately, it’s hard to develop code for robots, and nearly impossible to create solutions that integrate multiple different kind of devices.
Introducing Artoo, a new robotics framework written in Ruby. Artoo can communicate with many different kinds of hardware devices, and integrate them together. With surprisingly few lines of code, you can write interesting applications that tie together Arduinos, ARDrones, Spheros, and more.
Artoo is based on Celluloid, giving it the ability to support the levels of concurrency that are required for industrial-strength robotic applications. Artoo has a built in API-server. This allows your robots to be controlled by external applications, or integrated into larger, more complex solutions.
The time has come for Ruby-based robotics, and Artoo can help lead the way!
