  • GSoC 2010

    Earlier this month, I applied to the Mono Project (and the University of Washington, and Ubuntu, and Debian, and The Perl Foundation) requesting a mentor to get Perl6 hosted on the DLR. Last Tuesday, Miguel contacted me and asked that I chat with Michael Hutchinson about possibly taking up a different project. It seems that […]

  • Connecting to MySQL with ODBC on Mono

    We had a visitor on #mono today who needed help with his homework. It seems that Reggie is happy to have forgotten everything about using ODBC to connect to MySQL. I was curious and feeling helpful, so I figured it out. Install the MySQL ODBC driver $ sudo apt-get install libmyodbc You can also grab […]

  • Randal Schwartz interviews Michael Foord about IronPython

    The FLOSS Weekly folks (including my homie, Randal) just published this week’s interview. It is with Michael Foord, who I just met a couple weeks ago. He published a book about IronPython. He mentions Mono, the DLR and IronRuby, too ;)

  • Looking to get Iron* and the DLR into RedHat

    I sent an email to the Fedora Legal list asking whether they will accept software released under the MS-PL license. My friend and former colleague, Brett Lentz mentioned that he was concerned that the Fedora folks might not accept software released under the MS-PL. So I asked. I also bcc’d a certain troll on said […]

  • mono-2.4.2.3 debs will include array comparison patch

    Thanks to Marek being a superhero, we have isolated the changes necessary to fix the compiler from the 2.4.2.3 tag so that we can build IronRuby with xbuild. I’ve delivered the patch to meebey, and he has included it in his debian/patches list. Without this patch, I was going to have to package up the […]

  • Debian mono-2.4.2 on the move, IronPython in its own package

    I’m too busy to make two separate blog entries, so here is an update on my Mono work for the day. I’ve helped get the mono-2.4.2 debs moving. The mono-api-diff tool was removed after the 2.2 branch, so I grabbed it from the attic, dusted it off and patched it for use by meebey. The […]
