Exciting product releases (and one disappointing thing) with Mix10
Sadly, I'm not at Mix this year, for the first time in a few years. It's a little harder to go if you work for Microsoft, oddly enough. And then there's this little guy next to me, who at ten days old really needs his daddy to be around! But oh, the excitement...
Silverlight vs. Flash and other pundit fodder
Yet another blog post has hit the airwaves and become all atwitter about Flash and Silverlight, the competition, Adobe vs. Silverlight, etc. While this makes for interesting pundit fodder, I just think that the people observing the situation don't really...
CoasterBuzz Feed: A Silverlight 3 story
A few weeks ago, I decided to jump in and do a "science project" with Silverlight 3. My prior experiences with Silverlight involved a simple DeepZoom viewer that happened to use a Web service as its tile source, and a file uploader that cut up multiple...
The Silverlight 3 development experience, ups and downs
I started a little science project for CoasterBuzz about a week ago or so. I wanted to build a little Silverlight app that sucked down updates of all kinds, and make it live outside the browser. There are constantly new posts, topics, news items and photos...
Silverlight 3: Calling a WCF service without a proxy using Binary XML
David Betz has a really solid (and really, really long) post on calling a WCF service from Silverlight, without using a Service Reference. I'm certainly not going to try and top that or duplicate it, but I wanted to share my experience using the same...
Silverlight 3 and Twitter
The Twitterworld or (Twittersphere or whatever silly shit someone made up today) was all abuzz about the release of Silverlight 3 today, and I was shocked at how quickly it made the trends and how overwhelmingly it was positive. I kind of knew it was...
What's so terrible about using software owned by a company?
I'm not sure I get the point of Mozilla wanting to push an open source video standard ( see Ars story ). They're pusing for an open platform for video. So why exactly does everything have to be "vendor-neutral, standards-based?" I don't care that Flash...
Lessons in building an uploader in Silverlight
I mentioned previously that I was working on a multi-file upload control for Silverlight. Yes, it has been done, but it's a good practical thing to get your head around. I feel like I've managed to get to a good place with it in terms of the "hard" parts...
FJCore updates... perhaps coming soon
I had an exchange with one of the guys from Occipital , who maintain the FJCore library . For those of you not playing along, this is a pure C# implementation for basic JPEG manipulation. It doesn't depend on the .NET Framework in any way, which means...
My first real experience with Silverlight
Back in 2004, when I was writing my book, I was all over everything new in the .NET world. It was partly out of never ending curiosity, but partly because I had to know what was in the pipe to avoid making the book obsolete before it was released. These...
