A few things I want to share tonight:
h3. Want to work on dynamic languages at Microsoft ?
First John Lam announced that Microsoft is recruiting on the dynamic language side:
We have five open positions as of today. We need devs for IronRuby, IronPython and F# and testers for IronRuby and F# (the links to the F# jobs will appear soon).
If you are interested, contact John through his blog.
h3. I'm sharing articles on a new "generalizing-specialist" blog
A few weeks ago, I've started a new blog where I share *learning content with software developers*. It's not tied to a particular technology.
What you will find there: articles, how-to's, beginner's guides. No news.
I'll continue to blog about DotNet news here.
h3. IronRuby with Silverlight soon to come
I believe we'll get a release of Silverlight with IronRuby enabled at Mix08...
Be sure there is going to be a lot of funny stuff written with this when it will be out.
h3. Mike Gunderloy 301 redirect
I've been a fanatic reader of Mike Gunderloy's LarkWare news for years. Now he has decided to focus on Rails, Merb and other technologies.
I warmly recommend his new blog A Fresh Cup.
Even if you're not focusing on Rails, you'll find plenty of useful links in his daily cup of links.
h3. A tiny IronRuby sample
To close this post, here's a sample of code I want to share. I wrote it while preparing an IronRuby article for the french magazine Programmez:
class System:: Drawing::Bitmap def set_pixel_clip(x,y,color) set_pixel(x,y,color) unless (x<0 or y<0 or x>=width or y>=height) end end
(forget about the extra space before Drawing - if I remove it this blog draws a smiley)
Here although the Bitmap class is sealed, we're able to add a method to it to handle a convenient scenario (I believe it's using the "extension methods" ). The existing SetPixel method is automatically "rubynised" to set_pixel, as well as the Width and Height properties.
The more I work with IronRuby, the more I like it!
That's all for now. Back to feeding the baby!
