I wouldn't use the word "formal" to describe my talk, but Pivotal is
welcome to record it and put it online. :)

I was asked to speak at this event by Rich Morin, after giving a short
presentation on MacRuby to the SFRuby group last month. Here are the
slides for the talk I delivered at SFRuby:

In that talk, I tried to make the case that MacRuby is the best choice
for Rubyists who want to do native, GUI development. I assume the
audience for this event will be coming in with more of an
Cocoa/Objective-C background, so I will probably rework the talk to
focus on why they might want to consider learning MacRuby. Does that
seem about right?
