What is Silverlight Web 2.0?


I got talking to Fergal Breen of Irish Dev at demobar about an event that is talking place in Cineworld in Dublin on September the 27th. I have to admit, I did not know anything about Silverlight when Fergal mentioned it to me. Apparently Silverlight is Microsofts answer to Adobe’s Flash. We have been looking at Openlaszlo lately which is purely flash based flash and DHTML. It would be interesting to see Mircosofts take on this and what they have to offer.

Here is what Irish Dev has to say about the event:

In September, Martha Rotter, from the original Silverlight crew, invites you to witness how Silverlight can light up the web with Rich Interactive Applications.
Join her, free to learn how to use Silverlight at Ireland’s largest cinema complex. It’s Silverlight, on the silver screen. If you see one movie this year, skip it and join us instead. Next year, they’ll be attending your Silverlight RIA.

I hope to make it along so hopefully see you there if you are interested. Details are as follows:

Time 19.30
Date Thursday, September 27, 2007
Venue Cineworld Complex, Parnell Street, Dublin 1
