Winforms with Mono and IronPython Tutorial Series into Arabic. It includes implementations of Snake and Tetris games as the final two parts of the tutorial showing how to create applications with IronPython on Mono or .NET.
Earlier this year I created a Monte Carlo Texas Holdem Simulator using an IronPython powered spreadsheet in Resolver One. The main goals were to learn IronPython, test how well it worked for creating complex spreadsheets, and enter a few of those spreadsheets into the Resolver One competition. Well I can honestly say that I exceeded even my own expectations on all three accounts, and it didn’t stop there either. After learning IronPython I started using it for the occasional random “Hey could you ...” tasks that get assigned to me at work, and I found a few other interesting uses for Resolver One as well.
Since Microsoft Dynamics is a closed-source application, Microsoft is turning elsewhere for examples of how dynamic languages can allow users to customize their experience. Once such example is Witty, an open source Twitter client.
A novel feature in Witty is that it includes a REPL console. Exposing the console is incredibly simple. Simply instantiate a ConsoleWindow object, pass in the objects you want your end-users to be able to access, and display it.
