Rhomobile company ( is looking for contractor developer
who is
familiar with IronRuby code to implement SavableScriptCode for IronRuby.
Here is comment from Tomas Matousek :

"SavableScriptCode provides basic infrastructure for serializing
expression trees to an assembly. IronPython uses this. To make this work
language needs to ensure that the expression trees it produces only
refer to
live objects (constants) that are IExpressionSerializable. IronRuby
hold on various method objects, RubyContext instance, not yet compiled
AST, dynamic sites, constant lookup caches, etc. All these need to
serialization. I haven't done the work that's necessary to make all this
work but this would be the way to go about it."

Why we need it?

Rhomobile is developing Rhodes - open source mobile platform based on
Now we are supporting Windows Phone 7. Iron Ruby works fine on the
except the startup time, which is slow (8-9 sec).

At startup time we load bunch of ruby files, and create some objects, so
text parsing can be done at build time when startup should be faster we

 Evgeny Vovchenko, Rhomobile.

This would be a great project for someone to pick up, though it is a
large amount of work, it is highly needed for embedded scripting
scenarios. And sounds like you'll also be paid :) so if you have time
and are a confident C# dev, my all means jump on this.
