The last few days have been pretty hectic for me. And there's been a recurring theme - Silverlight.
Seems the announcements from MIX07 last week have broken through (Microsoft Lights Way for Next-Generation Web Development and Design at MIX07) and now folks want to know more.
I've been contact by lots people who I used to talk to many, many years ago, and they are all after info on Silverlight.
So, what do I tell them?
First, I point them to these :
Then I tell them to watch the MIX07 Session Recordings.
Then I point to some of the video interviews from MIX07
- Hanselman and Harsh -- What is Silverlight?
- Ryan Stewart Interviews Silverlight Guys
- Gavin Gear Demonstrates Ink Support in Silverlight
- Neil Hunt of Netflix on Silverlight
Then I list out some videos of the cool demos from MIX07
- Disney Keynote Demo
- Nissan/National Geographic Keynote Demo
- BBC Radio One Keynote Demo
- CBS MIX07 Keynote Demo
- Major League Baseball MIX07 Demo
- Netflix Uses Silverlight for Video on Demand
Then I send a summary of the announcements from MIX07
- The beta of Microsoft Silverlight 1.0 is now available
- The CTP of Microsoft Silverlight 1.1 is now available
- Expression Studio now shipping
- Microsoft Silverlight Streaming
Finally I them that the need to get to ReMix
And from now on, I'm going to link my old friends to this post - LOL
