My friend (and fellow XAML guy) Rob Cameron has posted two screencasts that explain how to get started using XAML and Bing Maps. XAML, of course, is a markup language often used for building user experiences on WPF and Silverlight, and this technology can do some amazing things with geographic data (as I’ve blogged about extensively.)
To get a sense of what Rob’s up to, take a peek at Xaml and Bing Maps for Enterprise – Part 1 (in which Rob does some fancy geocoding, threading and databinding), and Xaml and Bing Maps for Enterprise – Part 2 (in which Rob builds a Silverlight 3 app that uses geocoded data for fancy display.)
For more information about how to get started with XAML, see XAMLFest Online. You’ll find tutorials and best practices for getting started with WPF and Silverlight.

Happy XAML everyone!
