I took some vacation during the month of July and decided I was going to do two things:
- Start a blog about my love of drums and all things percussive.
- Learn more about Microsoft's Deep Zoom and Silverlight technology.
The outcome of item number one is my new web site, DrummBlog.com. This is a site by a drummer for other drummers.
As to item number two, it's a sad characteristic of my profession that I rarely get to "go deep" on any technology, but I saw this as an opportunity to get a personal project started and learn some cool new technology for my day job.
The result is my first Silverlight Deep Zoom project, a mosaic of my favorite drummers. I put this up on DrummBlog.com, last month and today wrote up a detailed post on the tools and process I followed to make this little work of art.
You can read the whole story at:
Also, in the next fews days, I'll be writing up a post on my experience producing, deploying and hosting streaming video using Expression Media Encoder and the Silverlight Streaming service on Windows Live.
