Back to work

by edsilverton

Well I’m back from Mix08 in Vegas and my subsequent Italian snowboarding holiday and now I’m spelunking Silverlight 2 in preparation for some client work.

Mix08 was an incredible event and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting new people as well as friends who were attending. There was so much going on and being announced that it wouldn’t do it justice to summarise here.

From what I’ve seen Silverlight is going through a phase similar to the early days of Flash where developers are sharing tips and tricks and trying to settle on standard patterns and practices. However it feels like this process is on steroids due perhaps to the number of blogging asp.net developers. I’m trying to filter all this information into my own implementation of a Cms-driven site which I’ll give code samples for in due course.

Here are some particularly helpful Silverlight blogs I’ve come across:
