[ANN] IronPython Training in New York, January 21st 2010

Hello all,

In association with Holdenweb Training [1] I'll be doing some
IronPython training in New York in January (21st).

The course is called "IronPython from the Ground Up": http://hwebipmc01.eventbrite.com/

Course details:

Michael Foord is an early adopter of IronPython, having used it for
(among other things) the creation of the Resolver One Python-driven
spreadsheet product. He is the author of Manning's IronPython in
Action and a well-known speaker at Python conferences throughout the
world.

IronPython is the implementation of Python for the .NET framework
and Mono. IronPython combines the power of the .NET framework with the
expressiveness and flexibility of the Python programming language. In
this workshop you'll get hands on experience with using IronPython:
from the basics of integrating with the framework assemblies and
classes to embedding IronPython in .NET applications.

This workshop is aimed at .NET developers with an interest in
IronPython, and Python developers interested in IronPython. We'll
cover how IronPython integrates with the .NET framework, including
some of the tricky details that previous experience of Python or C#
alone won't have prepared you for. We'll also be covering the
IronPython hosting APIs and how to embed IronPython.

Reasons you might want to consider IronPython include:

* Using Python libraries from .NET
* Using .NET libraries from Python
* Writing multi-threaded Python code without a GIL
* Embedding IronPython in .NET applications for user scripting
* Exploring new assemblies and classes with the interactive
interpreter
* System administration and scripting
* Developing for Silverlight (Python in the browser)

Previous programming experience of Python is assumed, but no specific
experience with Python or .NET is required. Places are limited, so
reserve yours straight away.
Course Outline

The Interactive Interpreter

Getting started with IronPython, basic .NET integration, executing
IronPython scripts. Using the interactive interpreter as a tool to
explore live assemblies and classes.

IronPython for Python Developers

Why should a Python developer be interested in IronPython? From
multithreading without a GIL, to multiple and sandboxed Python
engines, to native user interface libraries (plural!) on Windows or
even cross platform development with Mono; we'll be looking at some of
what the .NET framework and IronPython has to offer Python developers.

Python for .NET Developers

A whirlwind guide to Python syntax and the wonders of dynamic
languages for .NET programmers.

Tools and IDEs

A rundown of the options for developing with IronPython and the
different IDEs available, including their different capabilities.
Application Development with IronPython

Using Python and .NET libraries to build applications with IronPython.
From simple scripting system administration tasks, to web applications
to desktop applications. Using Ironclad for compatibility with Python
C extensions, using the Python standard library and working with
the .NET framework.

Advanced .NET Integration

Using a dynamic language on a statically typed framework. Many of the
features of the .NET framework require specialised knowledge to use
them from IronPython; including making use of new features in
IronPython 2.6 like the __clrtype__ metaclass. Embedding IronPython
and the IronPython Compliler

Using the IronPython hosting API for embedding in .NET applications.
This can be used for creating hybrid applications with parts in C# and
user scripting. With Pyc the compiler tool it can also be used for
deploying IronPython applications as binary form. We'll also see
how .NET 4 makes interacting with IronPython and the Dynamic Language
Runtime simpler from C#. Python in the Browser with Silverlight

The basics of creating a Silverlight application with IronPython and
the development process. Plus an overview of the APIs available in
Silverlight; for building user interfaces, making web requests, and
interacting with Javascript and the browser DOM.

There will also be plenty of time for Q&A throughout the session.


All the best,


Michael Foord

Best thing you can do is:

1) Fill bathtub.
2) Power up your PC.
3) Get in bathtub.
4) Grab your PC.

All your other problems will be solved.

BFD. Sounds like a bunch of bullshit to me.

If you can't afford to advertise in the normal avenues and you have to post
SPAM here, then your product is probably garbage.

IGNORE IT.
