I had another chance to get in front of a User Group – this time the New England Visual Basic Professionals to discuss Silverlight for Business. I changed up the presentation a bit, removing the discussion of Authentication and Membership and replacing it with a quick discussion/overview of .Net RIA Services. It also was my first opportunity to show some of the new features and tools available in the recently-released Silverlight 3.
I have posted the latest version of the presentation slides, code, and “script.” As usual, the script is an interactive PDF version of the mind-map that I use, and it includes hyperlinks to the references for the pertinent topics covered in the presentation. To use it, start at 1:00 and work through the topics in a clockwise rotation. The content is available here.
I went through a lot of research material getting ready for this presentation, and I will be updating and organizing the Silverlight Research section of my SkyDrive storage area to reflect that over the next couple of days.
