Dynamic Languages :: Visual Studio / .NET
Writing “Structures” in today’s leading languages (C#, Java and VB.NET) is insane; declaring variables, writing getters and setters, multiple constructors, serialization and what not…All falls into “Line Noise”. We need an IDE built with 25 million LOC to get optimal productivity; and what we get “prop<tab><tab>”
Is Visual Studio / Eclipse / NetBeans are nice products or C#/Java/VB.NET are not good enough that requires such IDEs to deal efficiently with! Grins?
Hear and view slides of John Lam keynote at VSLive 2006 (His Blog); he is talking about future of programming languages; though most of the talk revolves around how super cool Ruby is; and how his RubyCLR can be used…Nice presentation anyways…must watch if you need to know about Ruby in specific!
If you likes dynamic languages; and likes to work with Visual Studio; you must check Visual Studio’s recent SDK, it features IronPython samples/project-templates of web applications using Python…
