Great job to the IronRuby team on getting this done! This just freakin' rocks!
A couple of weeks back, I recorded a podcast with, our community MS Developer Evangelist, Jeff Brand for his Spaghetti Code series. I was informed by Jeff, today that he finally posted it! I had a heck of a time recording this podcast with Jeff, the hour just flew by! If yo have the time, download the podcast and check it out!

Well, I had a great time meeting old friends and making new ones at this year's summit. There were so many things going on and so many people to see and talk to, that it's next to impossible to consume everything at once! So, to keep things simple, here are of the highlights per day: Sunday Although, I was not there until late (way late), it was a lot fun hanging around the Westin's lobby and talk about how a chicken takes a dookie. Yeah, that's right. Keith Elder had the great intentions of recording a podcast that...
That's right, John Lam has his team have put the latest release of IronRuby out on RubyForge (this took place on 8/31/07). Fellow rubydoes.net blogger, Aaron Junod, has a great post on getting IronRuby from RubyForge with TortoiseSVN. I'm personally looking forward to this evening's coding "festivities" as I try to integrate some code into the project. Good times!
A while back, I blogged some examples on how you can use .NET types within your IronRuby (IRuby) applications. So after playing around with it a bit, I wanted to do something pretty basic, inheritance. Here's what I tried:# Basic inheritance from a dynamic type
# to a static type.
class MyForm < System::Windows::Forms::Form
When you try running this through the interactive console, you get this error:
System.InvalidOperationException: superclass must be a Class (DynamicType given)
Nice and descriptive, huh? Well, essentially this means that your superclass needs to be a type that IRuby can understand, that is a class-type of DynamicType. While looking around at the source...
Looks like Nick has also posted his findings on IronRuby ... what can I say, it was just released today!! Anyway...I was playing around with IronRuby earlier this evening trying to see how it handled generics...well, currently it doesn't (remember, the code is alpha...but pretty sweet!). I created a sample C# class (cleverly) called, MyClass:using System;
public class MyClass
// Currently this event type cannot be called from IronRuby.
public EventHandler<CustomArgs> Custom;
That's right, John Lam and ScottGu have blogged about it! So go get it while it's hot!!! THIS IS SOO FREAKIN' COOL!!!
