In this WriteableBitmap, Perspective3D, and MIX09 issue: Karen Corby, Mike Harsh, Joe Stegman(2, 3, 4, 5), Jeff Prosise(2), Nikolay Raychev, Andy Beaulieu(2), Corey Schuman(2), Mike Taulty, Jeff Paries, Pete Brown(2, 3), Chris Hay, and Alex Golesh.

Shoutouts:

If you weren't at MIX09, or didn't get a copy of Laurence Moroney's book, he has blogged: Free Silverlight 3 Book Preview Now available ... even if you got it... get the eBook :)

Koen Zwikstra, who I had the pleasure of meeting at MIX09 has announced: Silverlight Spy update for SL3 and IE8

and in case you missed it in her post, Karen Corby has updated Snippet Manager

If you're wondering when this flood is going to end... I've pushed 95 entries into the database as of this morning, and have 47 queued up in my spreadsheet, not counting anything posted since yesterday, so it's looking like it'll be the weekend before SC returns to normal... but look at all this goodness we're awash in :) Shawn Wildermuth suggested links from the names at the top to the sections at the bottom. At least for now it's labor-intensive, but I'll try to come up with a quicker way to do them.


From SilverlightCream.com:

Andy Beaulieu targets the PlaneProjection properties with a couple storyboards, and gets a very cool effect... demo and code included :)
Simple Perspective 3D in Silverlight 3
Corey Schuman gives a real quick-and-dirty example of adding Perspective 3D to a project... looking good!
Working with perspective 3D in Expression Blend 3
Corey Schuman then goes on to demonstrate using Perspective 3D from inside Blend ... very cool.
A quick look at Silverlight 3: Projections
Mike Taulty has a nice code-intensive post on the features available to us with the Projection code.
Using the new Silverlight 3 Perspective tools to emulate 3D
Jeff Paries of course takes the Perspective 3D code to a playing card flip around all 3 axes... pretty cool, Jeff! -- and we all get the code as well!
Silverlight 3 – Perspective 3d Transforms – PlaneProjection
Pete Brown demonstrates all the fundamentals of PlaneProjection... great example with sliders to show you what's going on... oh, and the code too :)
Perspective 3D Sample
This is Joe Stegman's Perspective 3D sample from his talk at MIX09 -- check it out even if you were there... very cool, Joe!

Andy Beaulieu teases us with a 'HitTest' title... and then goes on to explain why, and give us hope for a RTW solution.

Pete Brown takes a different route on this one and uses the MediaStreamSource API to get runtime-generated video onto the page ... I've not seen anyone else doing this (yet)
WriteableBitmap Sample
This is Joe Stegman's code from his MIX09 talk ... you can take 'thumbnails' repeatedly from a running video ... I'm sure that will find use
Silverlight 3 Quick Tip #2: How to use WritableBitmap
Alex Golesh demonstrates the WriteableBitmap in a very clever way... copying an active control :)
