After a month off in July, it will be good to get everyone back together in August and get up to speed on Dynamic .NET. We’ll also welcome Keith Dahlby back to our podium, which is always both a good time and informative. Hope to see you all there!
It’s been a few years since dynamic .NET went mainstream with the promotion of the Dynamic Language Runtime into .NET 4, but it’s still largely viewed as a fringe technology. This session aims to change that by reviewing what the DLR is, diving into how it works with C# 4 and Visual Basic 10, and looking at some interesting applications of dynamic typing in static languages. In particular we’ll discuss C# interop with IronPython and IronRuby; simplified data access through micro-ORMs like Simple.Data and Massive; and static duck typing with ImpromptuInterface.
