Silverlight 5 and Other Cool things From Build
By: Pete Brown
Earlier in September, we released the RC of Silverlight 5. Silverlight 5 contains a ton of new features to help make business and other application development easy and flexible. Of course, we also had a little event in CA this month, focused on the next version of Windows.
During this meeting, we’ll chat about Silverlight 5 (as well as show a bunch of great demos), WPF 4.5, and Windows 8 XAML, and answer any questions you may have. The meeting will go where you want it to and cover the topics of interest to you.
