image My one-hundred-and-ninety-seventh podcast is up. Scott sits down with Jimmy Schementi to find out what's the scoop with the DLR. Is it baked? What do I need to do to get started? What's the status of IronRuby - is it done? Will IronPython be a first class language or is it already? All these questions and more will be answered.

Do also remember the complete archives are always up and they have PDF Transcripts, a little known feature that show up a few weeks after each show.

Telerik is our sponsor for this show.

Check out their UI Suite of controls for ASP.NET. It's very hardcore stuff. One of the things I appreciate aboutTelerik is their commitment tocompleteness. For example, they have a page about their Right-to-Left support while some vendors have zero support, or don't bother testing. They also are committed to XHTML compliance and publish their roadmap. It's nice when your controls vendor is very transparent.

As I've said before this show comes to you with the audio expertise and stewardship of Carl Franklin. The name comes from Travis Illig, but the goal of the show is simple. Avoid wasting the listener's time. (and make the commute less boring)

Enjoy. Who knows what'll happen in the next show?

I'm using a year+ old version of IronRuby embedded into a Silverlight game that I've been working on and it seems to work pretty well for scripting game events. Probably time to update it to the new version.

I haven't listened to the podcast on my zune yet -- so perhaps this is covered but -- last time I corresponded with John Lam he said that the IronRuby team were going to be fixing the naming conflicts with Microsoft.Scripting...which required namespace aliasing to get around.
