Look, so Orta helped build CocoaPods for close to a decade and contributed to almost every major iOS open source project while at the helm of Artsy's mobile team. Then, that team was dissolved a few years ago (there's a great summary of the history here), after that he started to move away from the iOS community to do some React Native stuff. That worked out well for a while but then totally dropped out of the scene to work on the TypeScript programming language.
So, does that make him a weird speaker for NSSpain? Yes. However, NSSpain has always had a special place in his heart as it was the first conference he talked at, in the first edition (2013) of the conference. So, where else would he think to make a brief come-back talk about this weird language (2nd most loved on the 2020 Stack Overflow survey) he works on in comparison to the language Cocoa developers use daily.
