Jeff Hardy has taken up the challenge and has written a set of IronPython extensions for Visual Studio 2010 with syntax highlighting, regions etc. The project has binaries available: "Just double click the .vsix file to install."
Peter Norvig's Python Spell Checker as an example of concise Python code. Thanks to Ned Batchelder for the slides of his Boston presentation, which served as inspiration.
The links above are three reports from the day, the first two positive. My favourite quote being "It was a huge surprise that the Knuth-packing beardo in the front row turned out to be a Windows developer, demoing on IronPython". But like Jeff Atwood said in his closing presentation; if someone doesn't hate what you do then you're doing it wrong. The third reporter didn't enjoy my presentation "I wasn't too keen on this presentation. There were statements like "Dynamic Programming makes it easy to test" and "Dynamic Programming means I type less" that I didn't agree with and there was no follow up to back it up". (See the comments on that entry for my reply.)
Xapper is a Django app to help facilitate the development of other Django apps that include Silverlight apps. In particular it is geared towards Silverlight apps implemented in IronPython or other dynamic CLR languages.
Xapper serves a similar function as Chiron, which is now distributed with the IronPython Silverlight binaries. Both these apps can dynamically generate Silverlight packages (.xap files) from a directory of files and serve it over HTTP upon request. This means that all you need to do to pick up the changes you've made to your Silverlight app is reload the page in your browser, making development of Silverlight apps much nicer. The main difference between Chiron and Xapper is that Xapper is oriented towards integrating with Django, while Chiron is a standalone web server oriented only towards development of the client-side app.
