Next week, my teammate Michael Scherotter will be holding a free half-day mini-workshop  at the Microsoft office on 6th Avenue to teach people about building Silverlight and WPF applications with Expression Studio and Visual Studio.  Since we work with Media and Communications companies, there will be a slight bent towards scenarios involving online publishing and media:

  • Overview of Silverlight & WPF
  • Designer developer workflow using XAML
  • Using Expression Studio to craft Silverlight and WPF User Experiences
  • Styling and Skinning
  • Data Binding
  • Using Visual Studio to hook up Silverlight on the front end to services & Windows Live on the back end and in the cloud
  • IE8 and Silverlight
  • Web Analytics and SEO for Silverlight

If you're a designer or a developer or somewhere in between and this looks like something that you're interested in, please contact Michael ASAP (include your name, email, company, and role) because we still have some space available.  Here are the logistics:
