Silverlight Firestarter in Redmond

Recently there was a Silverlight Firestarter event in Redmond:

When you wake on Sept. 17th the year of 2009 you have a smile on your face. Not only did you get the day of for “training”, but the “training” is actually something you’re very interested in.  Maybe you haven’t had the chance yet, or you’re looking for additional guidance; but today you’re going on a tour of Silverlight 3, Expression Blend, SketchFlow, the Silverlight Toolkit, RIA Services and XAML Power toys.

Since this event is in the past there is still a way to catch up: Tim Heuer and Mithun posted videos from the event and I highly encourage all interested in Silverlight 3 to look at them.


Started silverlighting…

I haven’t blogged for a while since I have been enjoying non-typical sunny and hot summer here at Washington.

Now the summer is over and it is time to go back into tech area. Since you’ve noticed there are no WPF/Silverlight posts on my blog and this is about to change :)

I got new laptop and after installing recently released RTM of Windows Server 2008 R2 RTM and converted to workstation. For more details you can see previous posts. And of course it contains booting from VHD… multiple VHDs. I think this is great new feature that speeds up testing and playing with different technologies a lot…
