Here are the three sessions that are happening at this event:
What’s New in Silverlight 3?
Are you interested in building business-focused Rich Internet Applications (RIAs)? Would you like to take advantage of 3D in the browser, but assume it is too hard? Have you wanted to take a Silverlight application offline? Then this session is for you. We will explore and illustrate the new features of Silverlight 3, including the following:
· Support for perspective 3D · Offline Support · .NET RIA Services which simplifies the traditional n-tier application pattern by bringing together the ASP.NET and Silverlight platforms

Building Web Applications with Windows Azure
This session will begin with a brief overview of Azure and discuss some of the announcements made at MIX. We will then illustrate through demo how to build a Windows Azure application from the ground up. We will illustrate how to consume Azure Table Storage, how to host services, web pages and Silverlight components, as well as how to deploy your solution to the cloud.
MVC 1.0 vs ASP.Net Webforms
Have you heard about the new ASP.NET MVC framework from Microsoft and wondered what it was all about? Are you curious whether this replaces ASP.Net WebForms? Well in this session you will learn how to use the model-view-controller (MVC) pattern to take advantage of your favorite .NET Framework language for writing business logic in a way that is de-coupled from the views of the data. In addition, we will talk about the pros and cons of both MVC and Web Forms, how to determine the best choice for a specific project, various techniques and patterns used to build MVC applications vs. Web Forms applications, and the implications for using each approach.
Seats are LIMITED! Register soon to ensure a seat…

This is amazing! It’s the exact same punishment we used to get as little kids in school. We also do this as a form of respect to Lord Ganesh – the Hindu God of knowledge. People in India have been practicing this for thousands of years and now we know why!

…and, that’s not all! This time, we bring you all the goodness of geekism in true pixelated Silverlight! :) This page almost takes me back 10 years when I was in School and hooked on Contra, Street Fighter and all those awesome pixelated games.
Well, with no further adieu get started and see if you are one of the 10 million IT Pro and Developer geeks in the world:
Enjoy all the glory and greatness of this game! I’m going to ebay to bid on one of those Nitendo Consoles…I’m so deprived of Contra!
Can someone already make Contra in Silverlight? Please!
