Using Dynamic Languages in Silverlight
People entrenched in Visual Studio all day [sometimes] forget how powerful a command-line and a text-editor can be. Remember, these are the *tools* that built and continue-to-build the web. With nothing else up my sleeves (I wear short sleeves) I’ll build a couple Silverlight applications with IronPython and IronRuby, and show you why scripting/dynamic languages made a comeback. Want to talk about anything else? Just yell it out, and I promise not to make fun of you.

Jimmy Schementi is a Program Manager on the Dynamic Languages team at Microsoft. He’s focused on making Silverlight application-authoring a fun and productive experience with Dynamic Languages, such as Ruby and Python. Though he’s passionate about all dynamic languages, Ruby has had his attention for the last couple of years, and regularly blogs about Silverlight, Ruby on Rails, and web development in general at jimmy.schementi.com/blog.

Note due to some security changes you MUST print out the invite bring it with you to attend!
