Silverlight - Dynamic Languages
Microsoft has announced that Silverlight applications can be built using dynamic languages such as IronPython, IronRuby and Managed JScript. It's something really interesting because it provides an opportunity for the developers of any of these languages to build exciting Silverlight Applications.
So what does this mean for a developer? Well! If we author the source code and run the Silverlight application and while the application is running, if we change the source code and refresh the browser, the changes are reflected in the application. Sounds very interesting, isn't it? Moreover, the Dynamic language initiative from Microsoft is not limited to Silverlight. The future releases of ASP .NET are likely to support these dynamic languages (IronPython in particular) for developing web applications. Interested developers can try this out using the ASP .NET Futures package (CTP).
