Getting Started with the DLR

John Lam has posted a quick start kit for people interested in creating their own languages using the DLR.

The Dynamic Language Runtime, or DLR, is Microsoft's answer to the needs of dynamic language developers. Built on top of the CLR, it provides a common object model and hosting service that allows interoperability between dynamic languages like Python, Ruby, VB, and JavaScript.

The starter kit, called ToyScript, was first presented in Microsoft's Compiler DevLab, a conference for language developers who are targeting the CLR.

The DLR is an open source project and runs on both Microsoft.NET and Mono.
