My talk at the Launch of the Vancouver Silverlight User Group
Last week I did a presentation for the Launch of the new Vancouver Silverlight User Group (http://vanslug.net). I had a touch screen laptop so I started my presentation with the Multi Touch Silverlight Puzzle demo, wow effect guaranteed!
So 80 people were Rickrolled this night! You can download and try this demo from this link:
My presentation was mostly inspired by this awesome MIX10 session:
Microsoft Silverlight 4 Business Applications by Scott Morrison
I showed only 2 slides and then built a live demo in Visual Studio 2010 during almost 2 hours, showing:
- DataGrid enhancements
- DataBinding enhancements
- DataForm and custom template
- Right-Click and custom Context Menu
- Implicit Styles / Themes
- Fluid UI
- Drop Target
- Webcam / mic
- WCF RIA Services
To run this code you need Visual Studio 2010 (Express is ok), Silverlight 4 Tools for Visual Studio and the latest version of the Silverlight toolkit (note that all these downloads are free).
