Hello Cameron,

There is a lot of introductory material to IronPython on my website:


A couple of presentations I've done on IronPython:


A very good resource for .NET programmers interested in IronPython is 
"IronPython in Action". ;-)


A large application written entirely in IronPython is Resolver One 
(largest codebase of IronPython in the wild):


Reasons .NET programmers should be interested in IronPython even if they 
won't switch to it as a primary development language:

     * Scripting tasks
     * Powerful REPL for interactive exploration of .NET assemblies and 
classes with live objects
     * Easy to embed in .NET applications (easy to interact with C# / 
VB.NET) for providing user scripting

Plus all the wonderful language features of Python of course.

All the best,

Michael Foord
