IronPython 1.0: Python on the .NET Framework
Jim Hugunin, Architect, Microsoft

Track: Python
Date: Thursday, August 4th, 2005
Time: 4:30pm - 5:15pm
Location: Portland 251

"IronPython" is the codename for a new implementation of the Python programming language on the .NET Framework. IronPython is fast - up to 1.8x 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 talk will show how IronPython brings the power of .NET to Python and the power of Python to .NET.

A year ago at OSCON 2004, the first public release of IronPython was announced. This talk will demonstrate the latest IronPython 1.0 in a range of situations from using GUI frameworks to driving Microsoft Office applications to working with a variety of external libraries such as GTK#. It will also talk about the challenges that were overcome to go from an early alpha release to a serious 1.0 release of Python for .NET.
