Well, the journey is going very slow… But I wanted to let you know that it’s on!
This is update #0 and not #1 because it’s an update. I’ve decided to help the community with this journey, so instead of writing VS integration, I’ll be writing a Silverlight weather widget that uses web services for fetching data.
I even appear on the IronRuby Wiki as a contributor:
I have already started and I have some insights about doing Silverlight stuff with Iron languages. This is going to be the content of update #1.

I’ve just realized that I’ve been preaching about IronRuby and the DLR - telling you to use it, showing you how, but I’ve never deep dived into it by myself. So I’ve decided to go deeper and examine IronRuby in “real life” situations. I want to run into its rough edges, write workarounds, feel the engine.
How far are we from V1? Is 0.3 really 70% far from being complete? from being ready to use?
I’m planning to find out the answers in the tough way – by getting my hands dirty!
You’re probably wondering how I’m gonna do that. Well, it’s simple – I’m going to take ideas and develop them entirely in IronRuby. I will write here about my experience and share my thoughts, critic, successes and failures.
My first idea I’m going to work on is an ironic one – An IronRuby Visual Studio Integration.
The target is to achieve a simple code coloring ability and an auto-completion mechanism for IronRuby inside VS.
If you have more ideas for the rest of the journey, please let me know!
Off we go!

The web is filled with lots of resources about Ruby and .Net. It does lack of resources about the combination – IronRuby. I’m sure this will get better as time goes by and official releases are out the door.
Here I’ll try to gather the most effective resources for you so your entrance to the IronRuby world will be smooth and enjoyable.
