I've spent this week visiting the Microsoft Campus in Hyderabad, India.  On Wednesday I had a chance to give a talk about the upcomming VS 2008 release and do an overview of Silverlight.  The VS2008 overview can be found here.  ScottGu did a great job pulling together a lot of our Mix material in one deck here

Everything you need to get started with Silverlight is here.  Enjoy!
