Introduction of Silverlight 3

Yesterday was the April meeting for North Houston .Net User’s Group.
Tony Champion introduced us to the benefits of developing Rich Internet Applications in Silverlight 3.

While I haven’t done any SL3 applications in the past myself, his demos showed a remarkably robust data-driven form application that he wrote using Entity Framework and Silverlight, and it only took about 45 minutes.

I’m looking forward to playing with it some myself, but the limitations on Search Engine Optimization will probably keep me from rolling it out in a production environment for a while.

In other news, I hear that Houston Tech Fest will be on the schedule soon. Awesome!
