Our talks at Teched 2007 (June 4-8th) in Orlando

We have three very exciting talks (below) at TechEd 2007 in Orlando. In addition we are dynamic languages booth that will have folks from the team that can demo/answer questions you may have. Join us at TechEd!

WEB06-TLC - Developing Data Driven Applications Using the New Dynamic Data Controls in ASP.NET

    Tuesday, June 5 4:30 PM - 5:45 PM, Blue Theater 14 

Speaker(s): Mahesh Prakriya, Qing Ye

Track(s): Web Development and Infrastructure

Level: 300

ASP.NET dynamic data controls are part of a powerful, rich new framework that lets you create data driven ASP.NET applications very easily. ASP.NET dynamic data controls do this by automatically discovering the schema at runtime, deriving behavior from the database and finally creating an ASP.NET page. Anything that can be inferred from the schema works with almost no user effort. If needed, the page can then be further customized either by using static languages such as Microsoft Visual C# or Visual Basic .NET or dynamic languages such as IronPython, Visual Basic, Jscript, etc. In this talk, we show you how to build rich, database driven Web applications from scratch, such as TaskList along with other demos.



WEB324 - Dynamic Languages on the Web

    Thursday, June 7 9:45 AM - 11:00 AM, N220 F 

Speaker(s): Mahesh Prakriya, Dmitry Robsman

Track(s): Web Development and Infrastructure

Level: 300

After attending this talk you will learn how to use dynamic languages (such as IronPython, Jscript, VBx and IronRuby) in Silverlight and ASP.net. ASP.net and Silverlight are two great example hosts of Dynamic Language Runtime (DLR) and the languages listed above are implemented on DLR. We will first demo in Silverlight, then asp.net and will end with a combined demo of the two!


DEV315 - "IronPython" and Dynamic Languages on .NET

    Friday, June 8 10:45 AM - 12:00 PM, S210 B 

Speaker(s): Mahesh Prakriya

Track(s): Developer Tools and Technologies

Level: 300

"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.
