  • Dynamic Language Runtime

    I asked my Ruby question on the Castle Devel mailing list and Ayende pointed me to this.

    One of my first use cases for a Dynamic language on the CLR would be to have something like Rails ActiveRecord. Well my day just keeps getting better because I just noticed Dynamic

    It is built around entities, but I'm sure we'll be able to to adapt it to work with NHibernate and ActiveRecord.

    Good Stuff

  • Silverlight all the rage

    I've seen a few posts come through google reader talking about silverlight. The thing that I haven't caught in any of the other posts is that Ruby is one of the supported languages!

    Taken from

    Microsoft® Silverlight™ is a cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in for delivering
    the next generation of .NET based media experiences and rich interactive applications
    for the Web. Silverlight offers a flexible programming model that supports AJAX,
    VB, C#, Python, and Ruby, and integrates with existing Web applications. Silverlight
    supports fast, cost-effective delivery of high-quality video to all major browsers
    running on the Mac OS or Windows.
    This makes me very excited

    Update: Anders noticed this as well.
