Jeff Prosise Goes Deep on Silverlight

I was listening to the latest .NET Rocks Podcast and was glad that Jeff Prosise was deflecting some of the misconceptions around Silverlight. In that as I was listening to the Interview I had a note pad open ready to simply fire off an email to debunk some of the opinions being made, yet Jeff…

Telerik RadControls ‘Prometheus’ and Silverlight..

I’ve been an avid user of telerik’s "RadControls for ASP.NET" for quite some time now. RadControls are essentially a control framework built on top of ASP.NET technology which allows the average ASP.NET punter to produce Rich AJAX driven solutions with skinning capabilities. They have things like "RadWindows", "RadComboBox" and so on, basically a great add-on…

RE: Silverlight 3.0 Wishlists

A few days ago I blogged about how I’m seeing Silverlight 3.0 wishlist(s) popping up all over the interweb for the end of year celebrations. At any point, I’ve been given the task of aggregating this data to hand off to folks within the Silverlight Team. So.. That being said, now is your chance to…

Flip4Mac supports Silverlight.

Well hot off the wire, Flip4Mac apparently enables folks to export into Silverlight for the web. What is Flip4Mac? Flip4Mac WMV enables Macintosh users to play, import and export Windows Media Video and Audio files in native QuickTime applications. What does this mean? Nothing, everything. Whilst there is a fair few folks wanting to see…

LiveNet 0.2 Released..

I stumbled upon this blog entry over at spaces.live.com, where Scott Lovegrove (MVP) has put together a pretty sweet little application. This application enables you to view your uploaded Silverlight Live Streaming apps in a simplified way. It’s something we should have done in a web based format, and I’m sure there are some "I…

Dear Santa, in Silverlight 3.0 can you put..

Ok, I’ve read about the 9th "I wish Microsoft would.." style blog post floating around on what folks want in 2008 for Silverlight/WPF. I think this is healthy and I’d love to see what folks would like for Silverlight 3.0 (Doubtful you’ll get anything into 2.0 as that dye’s most likely cast already – unless…

FlickrUploader in Silverlight

Local Silverlight guru, Liquidboy (Jose) has put together a sweet ball of code which essentially allows you to upload Flickr photos in Silverlight (via OpenFileDialog Class). I won’t echo what he’s done (as he does a far better job than I ever could), suffice to say check it out as it’s worth the read. http://advertboy.wordpress.com/2007/12/20/flickr-multi-picture-uploader-done-in-silverlight/…

You’re a RIA Architect, I want to hear you say it..

I was asked via Steam Chat today from a close friend of mine "Where can I get some decent RIA work.." to which I had a fumbled reply (weakness here for our RIA community). It was a great question and something I’ve often thought about in terms of how our RIA communities from both Adobe…
