ARCast.TV - Kevin Hazzard on Dynamic Languages
In the second ArcCast.tv to feature a Mid-Atlantic rock star (the first was this episode with Brian Noyes), Mid-Atlantic customer evangelist Zhiming Xue (aka Dr. Z), interviews Richmond community expert Kevin Hazzard. Kevin is deep into dynamic languages, and is a pillar of the Richmond developer community, and one of the organizers of the Richmond code camps. Don’t miss this:
In this interview Kevin Hazzard, C# MVP based in Richmond, Virginia, discusses with Zhiming Xue dynamic languages like Python and Ruby, the Dynamic Language Runtime (DLR) from Microsoft and the next generation of C# that’s becoming a dynamic language. He explains that the DLR as “the language of languages” defines the boundaries between languages and what’s required for those languages to interoperate with each other and that the DLR as a centerpiece of the .NET Framework 4.0 provides a dynamic dispatch mechanism that elegantly addresses the interoperability problems that we've been working hard to solve since the days of RPC and COM.
