Following all of the excitement around Silverlight 2 at MIX last week, last night we quietly released the source code for the Silverlight Retail Financial Services Demonstrator onto an unsuspecting interweb. This is a technology demonstrator that shows how you can build a rich, immersive online banking experience in Silverlight, and it's got some really shmik features that I wish MY bank had. These include interactive 'what-if' games you can play with your mortgage, being able to schedule payments and model how these affect your account balance through the month, and navigating your stock portfolio, amongst lots of other cool things.
If you are interested in getting a quick overview, there's videoed session from MIX posted up at the VisitMix OpenSpace blog. However, if you're like me, you'll probably just want to download the source and start playing with it, which is what I did :) Here it is, running in (ahem) another browser.
Happy Retail Financial Service Demonstrator Code Tinkering :)
