IronRubying your C#
Dynamic languages are gaining some momentum, and for good reason. What better way to learn a new language than to use it to test your every day language? In this session we’ll look into testing your C# production code using IronRuby. We’ll take a good look at RSpec and how a dynamic language will make testing more expressive. After looking through a few tests, we'll take a peek at IronRuby on Rails.
