I’ve never been to Barcelona, actually, I have never been to Spain! So I’m really looking forward to this trip. In addition to Spain, I’m also spending 2 days in Istanbul for an event with a set of Finance Architects. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone in Spain!

Silverlight provides a powerful platform for building the next generation of rich interactive applications on the Internet. In this session, we take a deep look at the programming model and tools that developers and designers can leverage to build these true next-generation experiences for consumers and businesses, and demonstrate building a Rich Interactive Application (RIA) using Silverlight and Microsoft .NET. We cover how to use Microsoft Visual Studio to create applications, how to create UI using XAML markup and code, how to build a custom control, how to retrieve data from a Web service and how to manipulate data with XML and LINQ. We also discuss Silverlight roadmap and positioning.
WUX203 An Introduction to Microsoft Silverlight Controls Framework November 12 13:30 – 14:45
This session provides an overview of the Silverlight controls and controls model. We look at the fundamentals of how to use Silverlight controls and how to make minor visual customizations to them via Styles.

If you will be at TechEd EMEA and what to chat with me, I’ll also be working the Silverlight booth right after my sessions! Hola Barcelona!
