My Silverlight session at Microsoft TechDays Canada 2009

TechDays Canada 2009

This week I did a presentation at Microsoft TechDays Canada 2009, it was a repro of the session that Jesse Liberty did at TechEd 2009 North America earlier this year: “What’s New in Silverlight 3 ?”

You can grab the slides and watch the video if you have an account:

[And guess who’s doing a “What’s New in Silverlight 4 ?” presentation in Montreal on Monday…?]

A picture of my room:

I showed some slides on Silverlight new features and did 10 demos (Flip 3d, Animation Easing, WritableBitmap, GPU Acceleration, Styling, Element to Element Binding, Data Validation, Navigation API, Out Of Browser, …), one of them was particularly appreciated: the bouncing balls demo, a sample created by Joe Stegman which shows a Silverlight application running in 4 different browser windows, I showed it in IE + Chrome + Firefox:

Silverlight bouncing balls demo

The balls go from one window to another in a continuous way….!

You can try a live sample (requires popups), and download the source code from here:

It was nice and then I had fun being the track host for both days!
