  • Py Con 2009 Pumping Iron Into Python

    1. 1. Pumping Iron into Python: Intro to FePy Sarah Dutkiewicz The Coding Geekette
    2. 2. What is IronPython? IronPython is the open source .NET implementation of the Python programming language, giving Python programmers the benefits of the .NET libraries while still maintaining compatibility with CPython.
    3. 3. What is .NET? The .NET Framework is Microsoft's comprehensive and consistent programming model for building applications that have visually stunning user experiences, seamless and secure communication, and the ability to model a range of business processes. - Taken from the Microsoft .NET Framework Home Page
    4. 4. What is FePy? <ul><li>FePy, in terms of this presentation, represents two things: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A play on the name Iron (Fe) and Python (Py) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A project on Sourceforge that provides add-ons and enhancements to IronPython </li></ul></ul>FePy
    5. 5. FePy and IPCE <ul><li>FePy </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Provides add-ons and enhancements for IronPython </li></ul></ul><ul><li>IronPython Community Edition (IPCE) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>FePy and some third party add-ons are included </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Included in Mono, as of Mono 1.2.3 </li></ul></ul>
    6. 6. Which Operating Systems?
    7. 7. IronPython vs CPython This base language difference leads to issues with IronPython and Python libraries written in C. However… IronPython CPython Previous Version 1.1 2.4 Current Stable IronPython Version 2.0 2.5 Base Language C# C
    8. 8. IronClad <ul><li>Open source project sponsored by Resolver Systems to reimplement the Python C API </li></ul>
    9. 9. IronClad Targets <ul><li>numpy 1.2 </li></ul><ul><li>scipy 0.7 </li></ul><ul><li>matplotlib </li></ul><ul><li>bz2 from Python 2.5 </li></ul><ul><li>_hashlib, _elementtree, _socket, _ssl, winsound from Python 2.5 </li></ul>
    10. 10. Multi-threading + Multi-core procs = CPython IronPython
    11. 11. Introducing Mono Mono is a cross-platform, open source implementation of the .NET development framework.
    12. 12. More on Mono <ul><li>Features: </li></ul><ul><li>Common Language Infrastructure virtual machine with a class loader, JiT compiler, and garbage collector </li></ul><ul><li>Class library to work with any language that runs on the CLR </li></ul><ul><li>C# compiler </li></ul>
    13. 14. Resolver One
    14. 15. Something to Read I recommend technical books typically based on their reference value, as I usually get bored within the first few sentences and end up turning them into references rather than reading through them. This book, however, was one that I read cover-to-cover...Overall, I would recommend IronPython in Action for anyone wanting to learn IronPython. – Sarah Dutkiewicz The Coding Geekette (reviewed for Manning Publications)
