August 2010 meeting of the Israel Dot Net Developers User Group

For our August 2010 meeting of the Israel Dot Net Developers User Group we will take a look at the “Iron” technologies – IronRuby and IronPython.

Session #1: Introduction to IronRuby

Speaker: Shay Friedman

Ruby has been a home for some great innovative frameworks like Ruby on Rails, Cucumber and Rake. IronRuby has recently been released, unleashing the power of Ruby to the .NET world. In this session you will get familiar with the Ruby language and its amazing ecosystem and you will learn to take advantage of it in your everyday development tasks. Come and see how this great new addition to the .NET family makes your development process faster, clearer and happier!

Session #2: Introduction to IronPython

Speaker: Dror Helper

Do you want to learn about dynamic languages and their uses? IronPython is a good place to start. This dynamic .NET language can be used to develop just about anything – windows application, web services and Silverlight to name a few.

This session will explain what Python is all about and how to write .NET applications using IronPython. The session is intended for .NET developers without any previous knowledge of Python that want to learn about the power of Dynamic Languages.

As always, we'll have our special "Hatzilu" session at our meeting. So please come prepared to discuss your most frustrating problems (or at least some of them!) and to share some of your own techniques and solutions that you have found useful in your applications.
