Silverlight Vancouver User Group meeting recap

I just did a talk at the Vancouver Silverlight User Group (VanSLUG).

HTML5 and Silverlight 5: facts, assumptions and near future

“In this session, I will try to clarify what we hear (and not hear) around these technologies, maybe add a few guess on their role in Windows 8… as well as presenting a technical comparison between HTML5 and Silverlight 5: HTML vs XAML, tools, languages, databinding, performance, etc.”
