Recently I presented this talk at the Central Ohio Day of .Net. It was an excellent experience, the sessions were all top notch, and the attendees were great! I’m sure to do this again next year. If you missed out, there are other Day of .Net events scheduled in nearby areas, to get a list, you can access the event schedules here. Anyway, as promised, I said I would post my presentation material. Keep in mind, to get started with IronRuby on Silverlight, you will need to download the "beta bytes" of Silverlight 2 Runtime, the Silverlight 2 SDK,as well as the Silverlight Dynamic SDK. You will not be required to pull IronRuby from RubyForge because it is included in the Silverlight Dynamic SDK. If you do decide to pull IronRuby to take a look at it’s implementation, you will also need the full-fledged Ruby installed on your machine. It is also recommended that you include the folder that contains Chiron.exe into your path. To run the demos, run in the root folder from the command prompt "Chiron \b", this will run chiron and open internet explorer with your IronRuby/Silverlight program loaded, click on "index.html" to run the demo. Future blog posts will share IronRuby concepts in further detail, stay tuned!
