Yesterday I had the chance to talk at a DotNetZone event about Building Rich Internet Applications using Silverlight 2.0. It went very well, people seemed to have an active interest on this new Technology and anxiously looking forward to build real word applications (like this healthcare one announced yesterday by Tim Sneath) with it.
My session was quite long (2.5 hours – thankfully no one slept during it ;-)) so I had the chance to talk about almost all of Silverlight’s features and give a lot of demos, after all events like that, where you speak to developers, is all about demos right 😉 The topics that I covered were:
- An Introduction to Silverlight
- Core UI Features
- Controls, User Controls
- Styles and Templates
- Isolated Storage
- Browser Integration
You can find all the source code from the presentation demos as well as the ppt here:
I’m also planing on uploading my session recording (yes I’ve recorded the whole thing 😉 I just need to find some space and bandwidth on the web.
