IronPython at TechEd
Our own inestimable Dino Viehland, the IronPython workhorse and genius, was there and gave two presentations on IronPython:
Abstract: The Dynamic Language Runtime (DLR) brings the power of dynamic languages to Microsoft .NET. It provides the plumbing for IronPython and IronRuby, a shared language hosting API, and also enables interoperability with static languages like C# and Visual Basic. Come hear how you can leverage these technologies in your own applications, and learn why dynamic languages deserve a spot in your toolbox!
Abstract: IronPython Tools for Visual Studio is an extension for Microsoft Visual Studio which provides Python programmers with a great development experience inside of Visual Studio. It supports all of the usual Visual Studio features such as editing including rich Intellisense, debugging, light weight Python projects, and participating in Visual Studio solutions. In addition to the usual Visual Studio features it also supports a REPL window for a lightweight development experience which Python developers are accustomed to. Come and see IronPython Tools in action and see some new and exciting ways to work in Visual Studio.
