Scripting User Interface Evangelist

Mark Alldritt:

Because this year’s WWDC was largely a repeat of last year, I spent more time in the introductory AppleScript, Automator and Cocoa Scripting sessions than I normally would. I left these sessions with the impression that developing a scripting interface was a difficult and error prone exercise. The Q&A questions at the end of these sessions confirmed for me that the audience was not clear on how to proceed. Everything that was said in these presentations was technically accurate, but I came away uninspired.

Unlike with a user interface, it can be hard to fix a scripting interface because you have to worry about breaking existing scripts.
