Setting up icons for a Silverlight OOB application
In Silverlight 3 and 4, it is possible to create a Silverlight application and to have the user install it on the desktop (aka Out Of the Browser OOB). This is a great way to offer a “light desktop” experience, where the application can be started from a shortcut on the desktop or the Start menu, but running on Silverlight so that you don’t need the full .NET framework, and can run it on PC and Mac as you like. You can even use the application when the PC is offline, which is not possible with an ......

Believe it or not, it’s almost 2010
This year has been a pretty amazing year. A few weeks ago, I was writing about my first year at IdentityMine. A little more than one year ago I was closing the Siemens book (after around 13 years of working into Building Automation, but always from a software engineer perspective) and started the IdentityMine chapter of my life :). As I mention in the post in question, this first year was a very interesting and also challenging year. Interesting because I got to work with some of the best creative ......

Solving cross domain access problems (via Jon Galloway)

At my MIX09 and TechDays Belgium talk recently, I mentioned the issues that a Silverlight developer faces when trying to access a cross-domain web site. If the site has a clientaccesspolicy.xml (or crossdomain.xml) policy file in place, the call is allowed. If not, the call is rejected.

Talking at MIX09: Las Vegas and the continuum
One of my dreams is going to come true: Since the very first time I attended MIX in 2006, I have wanted to talk there. MIX has a very special meaning for me. It is in the Venetian conference rooms that I heard about Windows Presentation Foundation and what would later become Silverlight. It is there that me and my two colleagues Andreas and James decided that we wanted WPF for the project we had just started at Siemens. A decision that was definitely the right one, from a technical point of view ......

#MIX08: Wrap-up post
MIX08 is over, and I am home with what one could call the "post-MIX" mood. It's a mix (pun intended, haha) of various feelings Obviously I am extatic to be with my family again, even more so because I was away for almost two weeks, which I usually try to avoid. It's just so good to be with them again. I wish I could take them with me every time I am abroad. Read the rest of this entry » ......
