As is commonly known, Microsoft is developing IronPython and IronRuby, .NET implementations of the popular open-source programming languages Python and Ruby.
While it is clear that Microsoft wants to attract existing Python and Ruby developers to .NET, the role of IronPython and IronRuby for existing .NET developers is less clear. What value is there for a .NET developer in learning IronPython? What are the tradeoffs
between IronRuby and a more traditional .NET language like C# or VB? Harry Pierson, new PM for IronPython, will discuss where dynamic . languages fit in the.NET developers toolbox.
To learn more about IronPython visit the IronPython project page on Codeplex or Harry’s blog, he is writing quite a bit on that IronPython topic
