In recent years dynamically typed languages have received more and more attention on the .NET platform. Initially, an implementation of Python showed up. Later, the Dynamic Language Runtime (DLR) appeared which made it much easier to implement dynamically typed languages on .NET. This session explores how dynamically typed languages fit in the ecosystem of .NET. We’ll see why dynamic languages are interesting and contrast them to their static brethren (C#, Java). Then we will touch on how IronPython and IronRuby are implemented on .NET via the Dynamic Language Runtime (DLR). Finally, we’ll look at some code examples of how you can utilize these languages on .NET today.
