I don’t think I’ve blogged about this yet, other than the original announcement about the event – turns out I’m going to speak at the event as well. They haven’t published their complete agenda yet, but there’s an overview of (some of?) the sessions available, including mine. This is what my session’s going to be:
Last year Microsoft announced their future plans for dynamic language support in the .NET CLR, and existing projects like IronPython and PowerShell provide some insight into the application of dynamic principles to the .NET environment. In theory the distinction between static and dynamic languages is clear, but in today’s programming world the lines are often blurred. Do we want to be Dynamic? Why? And what is it that Microsoft is going to do for us in that regard? The session shows practical examples and explains the status quo as well as the future plans.
I’m looking forward to seeing you there!
