Great Presentation to the Israel Dot Net Developers User Group


Azure Session at Cloud Expo

I continue to be impressed with the quality of .NET Developers in Israel.. we had a full house last night for a 2+ hour presentation on building business applications with Silverlight and RIA Services.

The audience was very engaged and had lots of good, relevant questions which created a really good conversation.

Check out the slides and demo.

I started off by demoing the Right-to-Left text support for Hebrew that is baked in as part of Silverlight 4.


Then I started from scratch, with File\New Project and built out a simple data-oriented application.. basically I walked though most of this series.

You can find the completed demo, including the files and code snippets you would need to repeat the demo yourself, which i would be high flattered if you did at your own user’s group or for your development team.  You an find the demo steps in the series.


A couple of interesting links:

- We talked about the ViewModel (MvvM) support for RIA Services.  I high recommend checking out MIX10 Talk - Slides and Code and View/ViewModel Interaction - Bindings, Commands and Triggers

- We also talked about SEO – here is a good post on it: Silverlight 4 + RIA Services - Ready for Business: Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

- More details on the Silverlight out of browser work check out Tim Heuer’s video Out-of-browser Experiences

- During the break I showed a world map showing hits to my blog in real time from all over the world.  This is Stumpler.. it is a VirtualEarth, Silverlight, Azure based service from Brian Hitney.  You can add your own blog for free or just watch the hits to mine.  I expect to see Israel lighting up more often now ;-)

Thanks to Jackie Goldstein and Guy Burstein for organizing the event and for Jackie and Kim for the unique tour of a Kibbutz – it was great fun!
