It ways IronPython as a first-class .NET language, totally built-in with the .NET atmosphere, visible Studio, or even the open-source Mono implementation. you are going to learn the way IronPython could be embedded as a ready-made scripting language into C# and VB.NET courses, used for writing complete functions or for internet improvement with ASP. Even larger, you will see how IronPython works in Silverlight for client-side net programming.
IronPython opens up interesting new probabilities. simply because it is a dynamic language, it allows programming paradigms no longer simply on hand in VB and C#. during this publication, authors Michael Foord and Christian Muirhead discover the area of sensible programming, stay introspection, dynamic typing and duck typing , metaprogramming, and extra.
IronPython in Action explores those themes with examples, using the Python interactive console to discover the .NET framework with dwell items. The specialist authors supply a whole advent for programmers to either the Python language and the ability of the .NET framework. The e-book additionally exhibits easy methods to expand IronPython with C#, extending C# and VB.NET purposes with Python, utilizing IronPython with .NET 3.0 and Powershell, IronPython as a home windows scripting instrument, and masses extra.
buy of the print e-book comes with a proposal of a loose PDF, ePub, and Kindle publication from Manning. additionally to be had is all code from the publication.
