Tampa Day of Ruby: Iron Ruby Tampa Day of Ruby: Iron Ruby Presentation Transcript

  • Will Green http://hotgazpacho.org/ @hotgazpacho
  •  What is IronRuby?  DLR? What?  DLR Services  What can I DO with IronRuby?  Getting IronRuby  Additional Resources
  • + =  Simply put, its Microsoft’s implementation of Ruby that runs on the .Net runtime (CLR)  It is one of many dynamic languages that run in the Dynamic Language Runtime (DLR)
  •  The DLR sits on top of the CLR  It provides services to dynamic languages:  A Dynamic Type System, shared by all languages using DLR services ▪ It doesn’t matter language. If you find a library you like in a language that will run on the DLR, you can use it!  A Hosting API ▪ Host IronRuby (or any DLR language) inside your C#/VB.Net app, even Silverlight!
  • Or, how I learned to stop worrying and love the Dynamic Language Runtime
  •  Test (TDD/BDD) your CLR code with Ruby  Iron Ruby + RSpec was featured in February and March issues of MSDN Magazine  Cucumber wiki on GitHub explains how to set up icucumber.bat, and comes with an example
  •  Build GUIs with a simple DSL  WinForms  WPF  Silverlight  Interact with Silverlight  http://blog.jimmy.schementi.com/2009/03/testing-c- silverlight-apps-with.html  Script desktop apps, like AutoCAD  http://through-the- interface.typepad.com/through_the_interface/2009/0 4/using-ironruby-inside-autocad.html
  •  Yes, you read that right!  Rails now runs on Rack  Rack is a web server interface, kind of like FastCGI  ironruby-rack is an HttpHandler for running rack apps in the ASP.Net Pipeline  ironruby-rack is pretty new, so expect some rough edges  You can leverage your current deployment strategy to deploy Rails
  •  Download the latest release from CodePlex  http://ironruby.codeplex.com/Release/ProjectRele ases.aspx  Download Edge (pre-compiled zip archive)  http://github.com/ironruby/ironruby/zipball/mast er  Get the source and compile yourself  http://wiki.github.com/ironruby/ironruby  You’ll need VS 2008 and MSysGit
  •  http://ironruby.net/  http://rubydoes.net/  http://blog.jimmy.schementi.com/  Jimmy Scementi, IronRuby + Silverlight dev at Microsoft  http://flanders.co.nz/  Ivan Porto Carrero, IronRuby contributor  http://msdn.microsoft.com/en- us/magazine/dd453038.aspx  http://github.com/ironruby/ironruby-contrib  http://ironruby.codeplex.com/  http://code.google.com/p/msysgit/  http://www.microsoft.com/events/series/msdnnetframew ork35.aspx?tab=Videos&seriesid=124&webcastid=6398  IrornRuby for C# devs screencast from Microsoft
