Houston TechFest and Houston BarCamp – This Weekend!!!


Looks like this weekend is going to be *very* busy for me 🙂  I’m presenting a 2-part session at Houston TechFest on Microsoft Expression Studio and Microsoft Silverlight, and then driving right over to the Houston BarCamp to present on Microsoft Silverlight.  Hope to see you there!

Here’s the flyer data from the Houston TechFest.  The session at BarCamp will essentially be “part 2” from this same presentation

Building Exciting, Standards-based User Experiences with Expression Studio

Part 1: 10:00 AM – 11:15 AM Room: Dallas (215) [ Expression Studio ]
Part 2: 01:30 PM – 02:45 PM Room: Dallas (215) [ Silverlight ]

In this special 2-part session, we’ll look at the products that make up Expression Studio and how they are used together to make great user experiences a reality both on the web and on the desktop. We’ll dive into Expression Blend and Expression Design to see how they can be used along with Visual Studio 2008 to deliver rich interfaces based on Windows Presentation Foundation for online and offline scenarios. We’ll also explore Expression Web, a professional design tool to create modern, standards-based sites which deliver superior quality on the Web, and Microsoft Silverlight, a cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in for delivering the next generation of .NET based media experiences and rich interactive applications for the Web.
