More IronPython at Microsoft

Details of Visual Basic 10 are starting to emerge. This is a new version of Visual Basic that is slated to (at least optionally) replace VBA. Developers having been asking for more dynamic language features, so VB 10 will be built on the DLR.

Scott Guthrie and Scott Hanselman presented at the recent ALT.NET conference. They showed the new MVC version os ASP.NET - including the ability to create Controllers in IronPython and an IronPython view using a WebFormViewEngine. Demos of new technology from Microsoft always seem to involve illustrating the IronPython integration!

Want a job working on IronPython?
The Dynamic Language Runtime (DLR) team is expanding and is looking for a highly motivated and passionate engineer to join its test team. The DLR team is focused on delivering the most complete solutions around dynamic languages on .NET with respect to tools, libraries and community. Our main focal point is the DLR, which is a framework we’re building on top of the CLR to enable easy implementation of dynamic languages on .NET.

We’re looking for someone with a passion for dynamic languages to help us deliver the best experience in this space. As an SDET on the test team you’ll test our compiler implementations, contribute to our open source projects and help build our test automation and infrastructure.

dditionally, our test suites for IronRuby and IronPython must be flexible enough to ship to our open source community, without any ties to VSTS. The team is ripe with opportunities for growth and learning.
