Topic: Introducing Silverlight
While Silverlight has a lot of people buzzing, many others think its just another Flash in the pan. But for web developers who are sick of fighting the browser, Silverlight represents a fresh step forward to create compelling applications on the web. In this talk I will create an application from scratch with no parlor tricks or pre-fabricated code to show you how easy it really is.
