There are few upcoming talks that I’d like to announce:
First, at the ASP.Net Connections in Vegas, David Ebbo is giving a talk that’ll be worth attending and will cover how to use IronPython in ASP.Net applications.
AMS301: Developing ASP.NET Web Applications with IronPython
IronPython is a new fast implementation of the Python programming language running on the .NET Framework. While it stays true to the beauty and simplicity of the Python language, IronPython offers Python programmers seamless access to the richness and power of .NET libraries and applications in a fully dynamic environment as well as static compilation to produce pre-compiled assemblies. This session focuses on utilizing the IronPython dynamic language to quickly build full-featured ASP.NET Web applications. You will learn how to use IronPython to add rich scripting support to existing .NET applications and extend new applications with custom Python code. We will also demonstrate how IronPython can be used to combine a wide variety of .NET components and services. This talk is targeted at Python programmers looking to take advantage of the power of ASP.NET and at ASP.NET programmers looking to learn how Python can make building Web applications easier.
Overall agenda is at: http://www.devconnections.com/shows/aspfall2006/default.asp?c=1&s=82
Second, I’ll be giving two talks at Teched Europe in Barcelona.
Nov 9th, 11:45am: Dev206: IronPython and .NET Scripting Languages
‘IronPython’ is the codename for a new implementation of the Python programming language on the .NET Framework. IronPython is fast – in fact, up to 1.8 times faster than Python-2.4 on the standard pystone benchmark. It supports an interactive interpreter with fully dynamic compilation as well as static compilation to produce pre-compiled executables. It’s well integrated with the rest of the framework and makes all .NET libraries easily available to Python programmers. This session shows how IronPython brings the power of .NET to Python and the power of Python to .NET. At OSCON 2004, the first public release of IronPython was announced. This session demonstrates the latest IronPython version in a range of situations from using GUI frameworks to driving Microsoft Office applications to working with a variety of external libraries. We also discuss other scripting languages on .NET.
