Back on August 25th, I announced the Silverlight 2 Fire Starter that will be coming to NYC this Saturday, September 13th. The event registration quickly filled up and we sold out. I’m now happy to announce we managed to obtain a larger room and have added several open slots to the registration!
Anyone who registered on the site already and was “waitlisted”, should have received (or will shortly) a message indicating that you are now officially registered to attend. For anyone who saw that the event was full and gave up without putting your name on the waitlist, please visit the link below and register:
We have a great line up of content ready for you this Saturday. Here is the agenda for Saturday at the Silverlight 2 Fire Starter:
|Session 1||Keynote||Intro and overview of the Silverlight 2 platform.||Shawn Wildermuth & Peter Laudati|
|Session 2||XAML Basics||What is this funny mark-up language?||Jason Beres & Peter Laudati|
