Well we’ve just finished our first MCT Summit in Australia for a long time.

I and other fellow MCTs I had a chance to catch up – thought it was a great event.

I gave 3 sessions including one on Using Silverlight from within Sharepoint.

Am I sold on Silverlight? Oh YEAH!!!! It’s sensational with a huge
range of content delivery options.

Firstly here’s my slide deck from:


Download Solution – SilverLight

Basic Steps to get Cracking in Silverlight 1.1 (aka Silverlight 2.0)

  1. Grab VS2008 Beta/RC+ (I used RC)

  2. Visit Silverlight.net and download Silverlight 1.1 Alpha (or later) – there are some
    API changes between versions, but it should settle down.

  3. You’re ready to get cracking and start building your webparts.

    Some great sites to check out also:
