If you are developing rich internet applications, web sites or just want to learn what’s new in Silverlight 2.0, you are invited to attend local (Israel) Microsoft Event 30-June 8:30 AM- 12:30 PM in ILDC (new Microsoft R&D offices in Herzliya).
I’ll speak about what is Silverlight 2.0 and what are differences between SL 1.0 and SL 2.0. How to build RIA with Silverlight 2.0. What is DeepZoom and some cool parts of this new internet technology. How to use DataBinding, LINQ and Microsoft Media Encoder. As small bonus for this part of the event, we’ll compare different technologies with Silverlight such as Flex, Flash 10, Thermo and SVG to make you understand differences, “pros and cons” of using each one of those technologies for specific and identifiable needs.
Then we’ll deep dive into DataBinding and learn about DataTemplates, Styles, Accessibility, Authoring and Usability (including differences between Silverlight and WPF approaches). We’ll also take a look into LINQ-to-SQL and SEO of Silverlight applications.
Third part of this event will be dedicated to networking and interoperability. We’ll speak about internet protocols such as ATOM, RSS, REST, JSON, XMLWS, etc and usage of those protocols by Silverlight applications. We’ll understand how WCF can assist us to make our live easier. We’ll also touch security issues of Silverlight deployment and networking such as Cross Domain Policy, progressive download and deploy-on-demand.
I can make you sure, that if ”you are in” new web technologies and want to start using (or if you already using) Silverlight 2.0 for development of your applications – come and see me. Will be fun!
Note: Only a limited number of places available, so do not wait for MS newsletter (by the end of this month). Book now and come to attend this event – it’s free! (there is parking lot in floor -2)
