Interview: The State of IronRuby with John Lam

| by Robert Bazinet Follow 0 Followers on Jan 16, 2008. Estimated reading time: less than one minute |

InfoQ had the opportunity to talk with John Lam about how far along the IronRuby team is getting IronRuby released.

The interview is not a rehash of old information but more like a status report of the progress the development team has made since the announcement of the project back in April 2007 at MIX07.

John comments about the release:

We're shooting for second half of this year. There's a lot of work still to be done, and it's difficult this early on to judge how much community help will be
there (we've gotten some excellent contributions to date already). So our
schedule will slide to some extent based on that.

The entire interview can be found at The State of IronRuby with John Lam.

Another good interview by Fabio Akita

I would recommend this other interview with John Lam as well, it greatly complements this one :-)

Nice interview. I agree, it does complement this one as well.

Do you have an English-only feed?

First Class Support on VS 2008 Required by Soft Mind

Hi,

If i am not wrong Mr.Scottgu has accepted IronRuby as a first Class Citizen for DLR.

I think IronRuby inbuilt integration in VS2008 like C# and Vb.Net is a must, without this support, IronRuby would not be taken in a serious manner and would be treated like an orphan child, with no goals.

I do not like the idea of depending just on a third party tool. Let Sapphire Steel come as an option as Free Vs Paid IDE.

If MSFT is considering IronRuby and IronPython their own baby, than it should be proved with such integration.

SoftMind.
