Mix08: Creating Rich, Dynamic User Interfaces with Silverlight 2 Controls

Thanks everyone who came to my talk Thursday morning! (And to those brave souls who came to the 5:45pm repeat.)

The session video is now posted on the Mix site.

I’ve also uploaded the sample code and deck, if you’re interested. (I’ll post my flickr viewer app soon in a different post.)


Some other links…

Hope everyone enjoyed the rest of their time in Vegas. Sadly, mine was a bit too eventful. I ended up leaving my Mix bag by the pool… Which had my wallet in it. I guess some things really will “stay in Vegas”…

I Saw Elvis!

  3. Hi. I’ve been looking around to see if there’s a method to combine SL styles similar to CSS. Do you know of any?
