One of the best resources that programmers have is an integrated development environment, or IDE. Up until now, we’ve been doing all our programming using the IronPython console interpreter, which is a viable way to program but not the easiest or fastest. Luckily for us, Microsoft has an IDE solution integrated with Visual Studio 2008 that makes developing and managing IronPython applications downright enjoyable. This IDE, called IronPython Studio, is a free download from Microsoft that facilitates development of IronPython console and Forms applications. Before we get started installing and working with the IDE, let’s take a look at where we’re going regarding application development and why an IDE is such a useful tool in a programmer’s arsenal.
