QCon Presentation: Real World IronPython

In March I spoke at the  QCon London 2009 conference on "Real World IronPython". InfoQ has just put up a video of the presentation, including the slides and a demo of "Resolver One", the highly programmable spreadsheet system created by Resolver Systems with IronPython.
Michael Foord discusses IronPython, the DLR, dynamic languages on .Net, static vs. dynamic typing, Visual Studio integration, Resolver One, Intellipad,, embedding IronPython, the ScriptEngine, error handling, dynamic operations, functions as delegates, and the C# 4.0 dynamic keyword.

Michael Foord works full time with IronPython for Resolver Systems; creating a highly programmable spreadsheet called Resolver One. He has been using IronPython since about version 0.7, and has been developing with Python since 2002. He blogs and writes about Python and IronPython far more than is healthy for one individual and in 2008 was made the first Microsoft MVP for dynamic languages.
