My Silverlight session

Thu, May 22, 2008, 10:19 AM under Silverlight
I am giving a 75-minute Silverlight 2 Beta 1 session at various places and this blog post summarises the session pointing to resources for those that attended (and maybe useful for those that haven't).

You can download the entire PowerPoint slidedeck (save as PPTX) – it follows the following steps.

Step 1: First I go through 2-3 slides ensuring everybody realises that Silverlight is a cross-browser, cross-platform web technology that utilises .NET in the browser.

Step 2: Demonstrate some apps to give an idea of the kind of rich apps we can build - a subset of these samples.

Step 3: After a slide on what needs to be installed I move to the AGENDA. My AGENDA slide has 5 items on it, which are the following 5 steps (4 to 8).

Step 4: Getting Started aka Hello World.

Step 5: Intro to XAML inc. developer-designer interaction using Blend.

Step 6: HTML Bridge.

Step 7: Networking.

Step 8: IsolatedStorage and OpenFileDialog (i.e. File System Access).

Step 9: Finally, a summary pointing to your one-stop URL for Silverlight:

Thank you to those that attended (or plan to attend) this session.
