Dynamic languages on .NET

Dynamic languages prove themselves immensly powerful at places you least expect them to be. I found this out when I started coding in Ruby some time back and I completely fell in love with Ruby when I started working on the webserver project. For the last 3-4 days I’m seeing reference to Ruby on .NET at many places. Most of the links point to a project in Queensland University of Technology which aims at creating a Ruby compiler on .NET CLR.

Even inside Microsof there are a lot of dynamic language advocate and Microsoft is surely doing something in that space. Proof is here.

    There is a Ruby-CLR bridge project being undertaken on a skunkswork basis by John Lam.


    You need to poke around his blog a few minutes to unearth previous posts.  You could also search for his name in comp.lang.Ruby

    Another Ruby.NET project — this one a compiler, not a bridge: http://www.plas.fit.qut.edu.au/rubynet/
