Light Up the Web at the Dallas Silverlight DevCamp!

Microsoft® Silverlight™ is a cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in for delivering the next generation of .NET-based media experiences and rich interactive applications for the Web. It offers a flexible programming model that supports AJAX, VB, C#, Python, and Ruby, and integrates with existing Web applications. Even more, Silverlight supports fast, cost-effective delivery of high-quality and rich multimedia to all major browsers running on the Mac OS, Windows and soon to be the Linux platform.  Join us on Saturday, Nov 10th for an all-day coding fest on Microsoft Silverlight.  We’ll have experienced developers showcasing the power of the technology, getting you ready to develop your own Silverlight applications.  Then there will be ample time to spend with them developing your own Silverlight applications.  At the end of the event, you’ll have the chance to show off your Silverlight application — with prizes for the coolest and most creative efforts. So bring you laptop and your coding hat and come hang with a bunch of your fellow code monkeys!

Please bring your laptop with you if you can – we’ll have Virtual PC images that you can use, and 2 rooms of PCs if you don’t have a laptop, but you can also set up your own development environment – just visit the Getting Started site for details on what you’ll need.

You may register for this event online or by calling 1-877-673-8368 (Event ID 1032353469). Registration is not required, but it is recommended since there will be limited seating.

    When I tried registering for this event today, it shows that the registration is full.

    Is the attendance only by registration or can I just walk in with my laptop to this particular event.

    We have planned for only so many people to attend, but we’ll do whatever we can to accomodate whoever wants to come – I don’t like the idea of turning people away, so if you’re flexible with where you sit, you’ll be in good shape 🙂   Also, I only budgeted to have so much food, and so many things to give away, so if you’re not registered, you might not get any of those things.  If you’d like to come and join us, feel free – I just can’t guarantee you a chair to sit in and food to eat.  What would really help is if you can prepare your laptop according to the instructions on the "Get Started" page on – that’ll save you a TON of time once the hacking begins…
