After two and a half years of work IronPython in Action is finally


IronPython in Action is the first book (in English anyway...) on
IronPython. It is written by myself and my colleague Christian
Muirhead, with a foreword by Jim Hugunin (the original creator of
IronPython). The technical editor is Dino Viehland, core IronPython

Two of the chapters are available for free download:

* Chapter 1: A New Lanugage for .NET
* Chapter 7: Agile Testing - Where Dynamic Typing Shines

Links to the free chapters, and IronPython in Action on the Manning
site, Amazon.com and the Safari bookshelf are on the book website.

IronPython is the first of a new wave of dynamic languages for
the .NET framework, built on the Dynamic Language Runtime. IronPython
in Action is aimed at C# / VB.NET programmers interested in dynamic
languages and the possibilities of the DLR, plus Python programmers
wanting to take advantage of the .NET framework.
