Yesterday I’ve delivered my lecture titled “3-Screens Development using WPF, SL and WP7” in the SDP 2011 conference.

Implement ClipToBounds property

Windows Azure and PaaS
President of Microsoft's Server and Tools Business, Bob Muglia, comes to the stage. He starts by reviewing the different types of cloud computing:
Software as a Service (SaaS)

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
Then he dives in to the the advantages of PaaS vs. todays platforms:
