IronRuby & rake-dotnet

I'm back from attending a talk on IronRuby and rake-dotnet.

I haven't had much any time to play with Ruby, so a lot of what I took away is pretty basic:

  • You don't need to use parentheses when calling methods. That contributes to the magic you see when it's used for writing business-facing tests and DSLs.
  • IronRuby is much closer to 1.0 than I thought, only about a month away.
  • Theoretically, you can use it to do Cucumber and RSpec, though that wasn't quite working in this particular demo at the moment.

Anyway, it was interesting. Thanks to Gojko Adzic for organizing it, and Michael Delaney and Peter Mounce for presenting.
