Why invent a bike? Let's use Iron Ruby!

In the recent post about Mathos Language, it was said that the focus should be on the Mathos Language itself. After some discussions with clever ideas, it was decided that it will be best to rather focus on an existing language, for example Iron Ruby, and to adjust the core library instead. Here are some of the thoughts:

  • Develop a class called "IronRuby" in the core library that will include short methods and extension methods for easier access.
  • Write a documentation + examples with Iron Ruby code for each module.

In order to achive this, the important bit to fulfil is to write the examples of how to use Mathos Core Library in Iron Ruby environment. I think we should not restrict ourselves from the place where the examples are published, that is, all examples do not necessary need to be published on our project page, as long as it is possible to link them. It would be great if you could write an article for instance, on your blog, on StackOverflow, on CodeProject, etc. The last two options will in most cases give you some credits in terms of points! 🙂 Again, it would be nice if the tip/articles you write use Iron Ruby/Python, however, C#/VB.NET (and other languages) are great too!

If you have any questions, please ask me or the entire team (dev or dev.lang).

Have a great day!
