MVP Thierry Bouquain is the creator of the Silverlight Extensions project on CodePlex. During the recent 2009 MVP Global Summit, Thierry met fellow Client Application development MVP Page Brooks. Thierry discovered that Page had a developed a similar project to his, called Silverlight Contrib also on CodePlex. Both Thierry and Page decided to combine their projects together and are now actively working on Silverlight Extensions.
The aim of the Silverlight Extensions project is to group useful Silverlight controls and best practises into one place. The project has already been introduced into a number of sites including, http://info.francetv.fr and http://www.nouvelle-renault-megane.com.
