In this Issue: Thanigainathan Siranjeevi, Ashish Shetty, Kirupa Chinnathambi, Mike Taulty(2), and Andrew Duthie.


Scott Guthrie announced: Free ASP.NET MVC “NerdDinner” Tutorial Now in HTML -- note 'Free' -- 12 parts to this Tutorial!

Shawn Wildermuth announces I am on .NET Rocks! .. no not ME... Shawn! :)

Silverlight 3 Navigation API
Thanigainathan Siranjeevi put up a nice tutorial at SilverlightShow on the NAV API in Silverlight 3B.
Silverlight out-of-browser apps: Local Data Store
Ashish Shetty continues with the OOB series by discussing Isolated Storage and how the OOB app interacts with the In browser one.
Looking at Triggers and Actions
Kirupa Chinnathambi is giving us a good talk on Triggers and Actions as a lead-in to behaviors... good stuff!
Silverlight 3 – Simple “Flip Control” built on PlaneProjection
Mike Taulty played around with the PlaneProjection to produce his own 2-sided flip control ... nice and small and could be the basis for something larger.
Silverlight 3 – Simple Control for Online/Offline
Mike Taulty played around and built a very nice little control to show the connectivity of your network... I like the artwork you used, Mike! Nice small control example too if you need one :)
Gotchas for Web Services in Silverlight
Andrew Duthie exposes a 'gotcha' he got caught with on a Web Service with Silverlight. He relies heavily on Tim Heuer for info, but gives good code examples of what does and doesn't cause problems!

Stay in the 'Light!
