Microsoft@Siemens conference

Parlez-vous Facebook? Looking for translators.

Silverlight: When should you use RegisterScriptableObject?
One of the most exciting features of Silverlight 2.0 is its ability to let .NET and JavaScript communicate in a very direct way. JavaScript objects can call .NET methods directly, and register for .NET events. On the .NET part, this needs a little preparation.

Software development as a fine art

MVP, take two / Silvelight greeting card
Just got the good news: I am a MVP for one more year :-) My first MVP award last year was for ASP.NET, but due to my new tasks in the field of WPF and Silverlight, I've been awarded one for Client Application Development this year.
