Since the event took place, I’ve received a lot of positive feedback on it. The biggest request of course, has been to have access to the content presented at the event. That request has now been granted.
The content from the September 13th, 2008 Silverlight 2 Fire Starter has now been posted online. You can find the slides and some of the sample code at the links below.

Silverlight 2 Fire Starter Photos
During the event, Bill Zack and I took a bunch of pictures. I’ve uploaded them to Photosynth. You can check them out here via the thumbnail in this post, or visit the synth directly here. (Note: Apologies to my Mac readers, while Silverlight IS a cross-platform technology, Photosynth (a different technology) currently is not. You'll need a Windows machine to see the cool 3D effects Photosynth applies to photos.)
Silverlight 2 Fire Starter “Live” Demos
Here are some of the demos shown off and mentioned during the keynote at the Fire Starter:

Okay, so you learned a lot about Silverlight at the Fire Starter event, what’s next? Now it’s time for YOU to get started building Silverlight applications today!
Silverlight is a cutting edge technology. The documentation for Silverlight is great. However, like most new technologies, the best information out there is spread across the Internet on the blogs of product team members and expert community users. Here is a list of some of the blogs YOU should be tracking if you want to keep up on Silverlight:

What’s Next For Silverlight?
As mentioned at the Fire Starter, the official final release of Silverlight 2 is due very soon. [Update 10-14-2008: It's out now! ] Beyond that, I’m sure there will be some more Silverlight news and information at PDC 2008 out in Los Angeles, and of course at Mix 09 in Las Vegas next March. Silverlight is an exciting platform that has the potential to enable some great new rich Internet applications! I can’t wait to see what all of you do with it.
