IronPython and [Insert MSFT Technology Here]

Now that PDC08 is in my rear view mirror, I’m back to doing IronPython stuff. One of the things I’m looking at is making IronPython work with a variety of Microsoft technologies. Given the usage of dynamic languages in web scenarios, most of our focus to date has been on using Iron languages in Silverlight. Being able to program the browser with the same language you program the server is a fairly compelling scenario. We’re also starting to see new progress on ASP.NET support for Iron languages.

But those are only two out of a veritable universe of cool technologies. Now that I’m done with PDC, I can start to explore some of the others. Some ideas include:

  • IPy and WPF
  • IPy and Surface
  • IPy and XNA (desktop only – Xbox and Zune use the Compact Framework with doesn’t support DLR)
  • IPy and WCF
  • IPy and WF

Any other suggestions? Please leave them in the comments.
