[REPOST] – RVNUG May 2008
Last night I attended the monthly RVNUG (Roanoke Valley .NET User’s Group) meeting. Kevin Hazzard gave a good presentation on Silverlight 2.0, which I have been eager to try. After what I saw last night, and now that I have a little experience with WPF, I am even more eager to give it a shot. What I am not eager to do is what I saw last night, and that is Silverlight development in Visual Studio. More specifically, I have no desire to hand code XAML, which is why I like Blend so much.
Today I’ll be downloading and installing the Silverlight 2.0 Beta 1 Tools, and I may install Blend 2.5 Preview (which I hear is far from rady for prime time). I’ll be putting together a couple Silverlight samples in the next week or so. If I come up with anything interesting, I’ll be sure to share it.
