    IronPython code does indeed get compiled to IL.  Being a latebound language, you would probably see a perf difference over C# if you were to do some very CPU intensive things.  However, in the context of an average ASP.NET page that des things like get or set values from Control's, the difference should not be significant.

    Also, note that being an early CTP, we have not yet optimized everything in IronPython for ASP.NET, and I'm sure there are a few things that we can do better later.

    Anyway, please give it a try and let us know!

    Have you read the blog post from Scott Guthrie? http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2006/11/16/ironpython-for-asp-net-ctp.aspx

    yes that is how I ended up back here :)

    I do have one question - I would think there'd be any performance issues using py since this just gets JIT'd anyway? say over c#?
     

     

    thanks

    David,

    Just a quick note: I have download it and I love it, great job. I have not seen any problems yet. If I do, you'll be the first person to know ;-)
