Building Dynamic Web Applications with Microsoft Silverlight – 19th and 20th February 2008 – sign up here.

Silverlight is Microsoft’s new cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in for delivering rich media experiences and interactive applications for the Web. Silverlight provides a highly productive platform for designers and developers to collaborate in building a new generation of web experiences enabling you to build visually stunning interactive content and applications that run on multiple browsers and operating systems.

Join us for a spin around the XAML Canvas to experience the capabilities of the Silverlight platform.

We’ll look at both the 1.0 and 1.1 versions of the technology and probe into the programming model and tools you’ll need to build compelling Silverlight applications. We’ll also look at some related topics such as calling back-end services and asynchronous content download.
