Hanselminutes Podcast 45 - IronPython ASP.NET and Language Extensibility

My forty-fifth Podcast is up. In this one, Carl and I discuss how the Iron Phython guys used a hook into No-Compile ASP.NET pages to enable better support for dynamic languages in ASP.NET. We also speculate on Microsoft's plan for Ruby. I hope you enjoy it.

We're listed in the iTunes Podcast Directory, so I encourage you to subscribe with a single click (two in Firefox) with the button below. For those of you on slower connections there are lo-fi and torrent-based versions as well.

Links from the show are also always on the show site, although this show had no links to speak of. Do also remember the archives are always up and they have PDF Transcripts, a little known feature that show up a few weeks after each show.

Our sponsors are /nsoftware, CodeSmith Tools and the .NET Dev Journal.

There's a $100 off CodeSmith coupon for Hanselminutes listeners - it's coupon code HM100. Spread the word, now's the time to buy. This coupon is good for the CodeSmith Professional With 1 Year Premier Support option.

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)

  • The basic MP3 feed is here, and the iPod friendly one is here. There's a number of other ways you can get it (streaming, straight download, etc) that are all up on the site just below the fold. I use iTunes, myself, to listen to most podcasts, but I also use FeedDemon and it's built in support.
  • Note that for now, because of bandwidth constraints, the feeds always have just the current show. If you want to get an old show (and because many Podcasting Clients aren't smart enough to not download the file more than once) you can always find them at
  • I have, and will, also include the enclosures to this feed you're reading, so if you're already subscribed to ComputerZen and you're not interested in cluttering your life with another feed, you have the choice to get the 'cast as well.
  • If there's a topic you'd like to hear, perhaps one that is better spoken than presented on a blog, or a great tool you can't live without, contact me and I'll get it in the queue!

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

Great show, I an really getting the itch to try Python. I have some utilities that come to mind that I think will be a great intro. Also, will you get a chance to add the links for the Pro-Audio show? There are some that I remember as sounding really interesting. It's a little tricky browsing sites while drive the car and listening to these great podcasts.

As someone who listens to and watches a fair number of podcasts, Juice Receiver is still unfortunately the only reliable and useful Podcast Receiver. I have tried all Scott lists here and they have all have issues - being fair some of them cannot handle video podcast feeds very well.

iTunes downloads podcasts flawlessly, but without manual intervention all podcasts reside in one folder. As someone who has 2->4 GB of podcasts on his iPod at anyone time this does not work. If anyone has a better solution than the 2+ year old Juice Receiver then please clue us in.

Great stuff, Dynamic Languages are everywhere.

After C# and VB.NET we are in the process to add IronPython to the list of languages supported by our functional web testing tool
