    Peek at what Live Mesh SDK can do


    I've had the honor to play with Live Mesh and so far I'm very impressed.

    Right now you only have the folder sharing scenario. Yet it was cool to have my Onenote notebooks synchronized across my tablet and workstation and share with other people.

    For people that kept asking what the "Mesh Platform" can do, check out the below article to look at a simple yet powerful scenario.

    Having a task tracker application that runs on all my mesh devices and synchronize their state: simple yet wicked cool.


    Come to PDC to learn more about the Mesh Platform, the SDK and make sure you do ask questions directly to the people who built this stuff. They'll all be at PDC!

    Connecting Silverlight to Dynamics CRM


    As I promised in the channel9 video on CRM & Silverlight, I'm posting the sample code with a slight (3 weeks!) delay. Sorry folks.

    For information on Microsoft Silverlight and its development, please view the Get Started page.

    There are a variety of ways you can connect a Silverlight client to CRM. In the below example we're using a proxy approach by having a WCF service sitting in between Silverlight control and CRM web services.

    1. Download the code

    2. Download the public VPC and the below differencing disk containing the deployed solution.

    Note: This source code and VPC is provided "as is" and without any warranties or support from Microsoft.

    3. Download the video

    If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to leave me a comment on this blog or contact me through the Email/Contact form.

    Happy coding!
