WynApse Mining the Web for Silverlight so YOU don't have to
The daily list still remains high: Peter McGrattan(3), Lee(3), Dave Relyea with a Dialog Class, Michael Sync raffling off eBooks, Karen Corby's TechEd material, Pete Brown with a streaming upload work-around, 6 Webcasts by Lindsay Rutter, and Koen Zwikstra on his P2P Library.

Silverlight 2.0 Unhandled Exceptions
I had been tracking an old link for Peter McGrattan and had completely missed some good stuff on his site, so we're going to play catch-up: First is this short "what to do with an unhandled exception" post, next is Silverlight 2.0 Stock List Demo - Part 3 , good stuff... and links to the others, followed by My Samples Updated to Beta 2 in which he gives out updates to, for instance, the Stock List Demo Part 3 :) ... all with source, so enjoy :)
Showing and Hiding Datagrid Columns
Another busy guy is Lee, who is a man of few words :) He's got some good material, at least code... First this one on Showing and Hiding DataGrid Columns, Next is ComboBox code updated to Beta2 , and finally Animating ListBoxItems using VSM in which he updates his prior article using VSM... all these are code included.
Using Popup to create a Dialog class
Dave Relyea uses a Popup control to make a Dialog Class... how cool is that? ... the kind of out-of-the-box thinking that separates us all... I like it :)
Contest: Write an article about Silverlight 2 (beta2) and Win “Silverlight 2 in Action” ebook
Michael Sync has a contest going on his blog to get a free eBook written by my buddies Chad Campbell and Michael Schwarz... read Michael's (Sync) post to find out how to enter... this is a good book... really a lot of work has gone into this... so would be well-worth buying much less winning!
TechEd Samples
There are presenters (Michael Palermo and Simon Allardice) that I would attend any session they put on, even reading the phone book. Karen Corby falls into a similar category... her presentation material at Mix '08 cleaned my clock... I may as well have left at that point... and I'm sure her TechEd material is the same... sight unseen... right now it's the PPT and code, but watch the link, she'll be posting videos later.
Problems Uploading Videos to Windows Live Silverlight Streaming when Beta 2 Installed?
Pete Brown talks about a problem uploading videos to Live Streaming and provides a work-around... hard to beat that!
Upcoming Silverlight 2 Webcast Series
I got this by way of Andrew Duthie, and have already signed up for all 6 of these webcasts by Lindsay Rutter--- go out and do so yourself... how can you pass up 6 hours of free SL training??
Silverlight P2PLib for SL2B2 now available too
Koen Zwikstra has updated the P2P library he's been working on to be Beta 2 .. well worth the time to investigate using!

Stay in the 'Light!
