I'll put my slides up in the next couple of days, but in case  
anyone's interested:

Appscript, the OSA bridge I used in my examples, can be found at  

You might like to look at ASDictionary and ASTranslate. ASTranslate  
turns Applescript into python or ruby Appscript lines, but doesn't  
handle ruby very well at the moment (mostly because of keyword  
arguments, I think). Translating from Python to Ruby is normally much  
simpler than from Applescript though...

Also, Script Debugger 4 is well worth a look (it's interactive  
dictionary browser is extremely impressive): http:// 

Finally, Apple's own resource page http://www.apple.com/applescript/  
has had a makeover recently and has more information about what's  
changed in Leopard.
